Paying for safety

New truck industry rules limit the number of hours a day a trucker can drive. The Cincinnati Enquirer talked to Fred Stephenson of the Terry College of Business about the costs. “If drivers are driving less miles, then the carriers are going to need more drivers and more trucks,” he said. “But if a rule comes in like this that is theoretically supposed to make us safer, then shippers, customers and even society as a whole will probably pay for it.”
