Please consider the negative impact the proposed HOS rule changes will have on the entire US economy, not just the tens of millions of transportation workers and their families. • A reduction in driving time and working hours will trigger a need for more inexperienced drivers. As a result, highway safety will surely suffer. • The proposed changes will strike a blow to a struggling economy. Since the industry will have less capacity to haul freight, rates will rise substantially. • Critical components of the nation’s distribution network will be disrupted. Existing routes and distribution centers have been designed around the current Hours of Service rules. • Fewer driving and working hours amounts to a pay cut for truck drivers, at a time when drivers and their families are already struggling. I strongly oppose these changes and urge you to help stop them before they adversely affect the lives of so many Americans.

Stephen Prelipp, United States4 years ago Comments: If our goal is to be competitive and efficient, this is exactly the wrong thing to do. The HOS regulations are about safety. Trucking safety numbers have gotten better 20 years in a row without this regulation.
