Tool to prevent drowsy trucking did not reduce crashes

In an effort to reduce the occurrence of fatigue among truckers, federal agencies put in place Hours of Service regulations. These regulations limit the number of hours a trucker can drive before taking mandated breaks.

However, a recent report notes that the adoption of ELDs did not have a measurable impact on truck accidents.
