Committee members heard testimony on the Department of Transportation’s proposed 'hours of

service' rules for motor carriers, aimed at reducing driver fatigue. The proposed rules

would reduce the number of hours a truck driver can work in a 24 hour period to twelve. Both safety experts

and industry representatives testified on such questions as the effect upon the economy,

the number of accidents that could be prevented by the legislation, and the ability of the

trucking industry to adapt.
