New Rules Aimed to Reduce Truck Drive Fatigue Called  Into Question
 
After years of researching fatigue-related
accidents, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA)
announced they would be making the
first changes to truck driving schedule regulations in almost a decade. These
new regulations first came into effect on
July 1, 2013 with trucking companies given 18 months to comply. There were
three core changes:
 
-The total hours that can be driven per
week has been reduced from 82 hours to 70 hours. Drivers are still be allowed a
14 hour work day with a total of 11 hours
of driving per shift.
- The limit is reset if the driver gets 34
consecutive rest hours including two 1-5
a.m. periods, the time of day when the body feels most sleepy. This reset can
only happen once per week.
