In the next two years, big-rig truck drivers will be required to track
their driving patterns electronically rather than with paper records.
This new federal regulation is designed to enforce limitations on the
amount of time a truck driver is allowed to spend behind the wheel and
on the road.
The American Trucking Associations believe this rule will increase safety
on roads everywhere by initiating the following changes:
- Prevent excessively fatigued drivers
- Prevent avoidable accidents
- Ensure truck drivers are more alert at all times
- Makes is easy to manage complicated work rules
Some truck drivers argue that these new changes may open the door to harassment
over their work hours. However, some trucking companies have already begun
using these digital logs and believe the new system creates a simpler
and more proactive management structure.
