In this paper we develop maximum likelihood estimators of the intercept and the slope in linear regression where the error term is uniformly distributed. We prove that these estimators are unbiased and we show, theoretically and via simulation, that their variances are in most practical cases smaller than the variances of the corresponding LSE.
