The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is still seeking volunteer truck drivers for its 34-hour restart study.
The agency is looking for drivers who typically use a 34-hour restart period to study the operational, safety, health and fatigue impacts of the federal hours-of-service restart provisions.
Drivers who have already volunteered to participate in the study are currently receiving updates from the study team by phone or email regarding their status as potential participants.
The study is required to include drivers from different fleet sizes, types of operations, and sectors of the industry.
Drivers who are chosen will be paid for their participation in the five-month study. All personally identifiable information from the research will remain with the independent study team and will not be shared with the government, said FMCSA.
