The American Transportation Research Institute said it is soliciting truck drivers’ input on the effects of the recent changes to the hours-of-service rules, which went into effect July 1.
The survey asks drivers about effects related to miles, pay and on-duty hours since the changes to the 34-hour restart began, the group said.
“Earlier this year, we released a study quantifying potential impacts from the rules changes. This critical next step in the research will document how those expected changes are being experienced by drivers,” ATRI President Rebecca Brewster said in a statement.
ATRI said it also will begin data collection from carriers to quantify productivity reductions resulting from the rules changes.
The confidential survey is available on ATRI’s website, www.atri-online.org.
