10 toughest states for hours of service in 2015

Updated Jul 17, 2016

Following up on CCJ reporting last fall, here are 2015 figures for the toughest states for hours of service violations.

The list was compiled based on proprietary data from CCJ publisher Randall-Reilly’s Rig Dig Business Intelligence. The toughest states list was calculated based on the number of hours violations as a percentage of each state’s total violations.

2015’s data shows an apparent upward trend in the hours of service violations doled out by the top 10 states. When reporting began in the CSA’s Data Trail series in 2013 — a joint effort by CCJ and Overdrive — just three states were above the 20 percent mark for hours violations.

Seven out of 10 states are above that threshold now, however.

Here’s the list of states where HOS violations make up the highest percentage of total violations, corresponding with the map above:
