The American Transportation Research Institute recently announced that the latest version of its Idling Regulations Compendium is available online at Since first publishing the compendium in 2003, ATRI has distributed more than 50,000 copies to truck drivers and motor carriers alike.

Designed to help truck drivers reduce idling and comply with idling regulations throughout the United States, the compendium identifies 34 different state, district, county and city regulations that establish idle limits for commercial vehicles. Maximum idling limits and fines are listed, as well as specific exemptions. In addition to the online compendium, ATRI provides the information on a cab card that is designed to be printed, folded and kept conveniently by drivers in the cab of the truck.

“Information in the compendium is clear, concise and comprehensive, and is an excellent resource for motor carriers and drivers that operate in the identified jurisdictions,” says Rebecca Brewster, ATRI president and chief operating officer.

ATRI, the trucking industry’s not-for-profit research organization, is engaged in critical research relating to freight transportation’s essential role in maintaining a safe, secure and efficient transportation system.
