A new federal regulation that is now in motion will require truck drivers to log their driving hours, electronically, within the next two years. As of now, big-rig drivers record their personal hours of operation by paper records. The implementation of electronic recording is designed to create safer road conditions for drivers everywhere.

Many, including the American Trucking Association, believe this new regulation will promote safer driving amongst truck drivers by:

  • Preventing fatigued drivers from getting behind the wheel
  • Preventing serious truck accidents
  • Ensuring big rig drivers are fully alert when operating such large vehicles
  • Making it easier to manage complex rule regulations

On the other hand, some truck drivers are concerned this new regulation may cause harassment over their work hours. Nevertheless, many trucking companies have already begun using the new technology and report that this new method creates a less difficult management system.
