DOT Gets Rid of Requirement for Drivers to Fill Out Daily Reports That Costs Us $1.7B

Starting December 18th truck drivers will no longer have to file daily reports pre- and post- trip inspection. Getting rid of this rule will save the trucking industry $1.7 billion and 46.7 million hours a year. It’s a waste of time and money with 95% of inspections reports having no safety concerns, however there are certain trucking associations that do not completely agree of getting rid of reports. The ATA reported that 35% of their members will continue to file reports with 40% of electronic data recorders having way to file reports electronically.
