The American Transportation Research Institute is gathering carrier opinions on the potential impacts of changes to the 34-hour restart rule.

Under the new Hours-of-Service rules scheduled to take effect next year, changes to the 34-hour restart will include 1) a requirement that a restart include two periods between 1 a.m. - 5 a.m., and 2) 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 can provide confidential input on the HOS changes through ATRI's survey, available online at, 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.
