FMCSA taking comments on driver schedule and crash risk study

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is taking comments on a plan to expand its study of possible connections between crash risk and drivers’ schedules. So far, the effort collected data from only nine motor carriers, each with more than 1,000 drivers. The agency is proposing to expand the data collection effort to 44 carriers over a three-year period.

The agency will accept comments on the request until Dec. 24. To view the request and to comment, click here.
