Résumé / Abstract

The May 2000 proposal by the U.S. government to change hours of service (HOS) regulations for motor carriers generated considerable controversy. This study, however, finds that an HOS proposal that effectively reduced work hours and stabilized schedules could increase economic efficiency by addressing important market failures in the market for driver labor. The government's preliminary economic analysis of the HOS proposal misclassified redistribution from motor carriers to drivers as a social cost, omitted important benefits to driver health from working shorter and more regular hours, and arguably misclassified the costs of achieving compliance with current HOS regulations (adopted in 1937) as a cost of the May 2000 revisions. Furthermore, U.S. HOS standards lag behind the standards set by other major democracies. Although clearly there are many operational difficulties, the case in favor of strengthening HOS regulations is stronger than the many critics allege.
