Congress Requires Trucker Safety Study

February 19, 2015 Insurance Topics 3

What is the best way to ensure trucker safety? Should drivers be required to sleep two nights in a row — but end up driving during rush hour — or one night to avoid it? This question has become controversial enough for Congress, through passage of the Cromnibus bill in December, to require the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to take another look. My article, “Congress Mandates Suspension and Study of Hours of Service Rules for Truckers,” published yesterday in the AmWINS Groups’ Client Advisory, takes an objective look at an issue. The article also provides a detailed look at the study based on the legislative language in the bill. I hope you will take a look.
