Commercial Motor Vehicle Driver Fatigue, Long-Term Health, and Highway Safety by There are approximately 4,000 fatalities in crashes involving trucks and buses in the United States each year. Though estimates are wide-ranging, possibly 10 to 20 percent of these crashes might have involved fatigued drivers. The stresses associated with their particular jobs (irregular schedules, etc.) and the lifestyle that many truck and bus drivers lead, puts them at substantial risk for insufficient sleep and for developing short- and long-term health problems. Commercial Motor Vehicle Driver Fatigue, Long-Term Health and Highway Safety assesses the state of knowledge about the relationship of such factors as hours of driving, hours on duty, and periods of rest to the fatigue experienced by truck and bus drivers while driving and the implications for the safe operation of their vehicles. This report evaluates the relationship of these factors to drivers (TM) health over the longer term, and identifies improvements in data and research methods that can lead to better understanding in both areas.

Truck Drivers and Fatigue by The objective of this book is to examine the efficacy of the new restart rule promulgated as part of the Hours of Service of Drivers Final Rule. Under the new restart rule, if commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers choose to use a provision allowing "restart" of the 60- or 70-hour duty-cycle limit, they are required to include at least two night-time periods (from 1 a.m. until 5 a.m., based on the home terminal time zone if the restart takes place in a time zone that differs from the driver's home terminal) in their restart breaks to allow sufficient opportunity for sleep recuperation before beginning another duty cycle. To investigate the efficacy of this new rule, a naturalistic field study was conducted (before the compliance date) to assess fatigue in drivers working their normal schedules and performing their normal duties. During this study, researchers performed a comparison of driver fatigue between duty cycles preceded by a restart break with only one night-time period versus duty cycles preceded by a restart break with two or more night-time periods. This book discusses the findings of this study.
