The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) is looking for motor carrier input on the 34-hour restart provision in the new hours-of-service rules scheduled to take effect next year.

Under the rule, drivers must adhere to a 34-hour restart that must include two periods between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m., and a limitation of one restart per 7-day time period. 

This survey is part of a larger ATRI study quantifying real-world operational impacts on the trucking industry that may result from these revisions.   

Motor carriers are encouraged to provide confidential input on the HOS changes through ATRI’s survey, available online at www.atri-online.org or by clicking here.  The aggregated and anonymized results of the survey will be available later this year and ATRI’s full HOS study will be released in early 2013.
