FMCSA Unveils Proposed Changes to Hours-of-Service Rules

By August 14, 2019April 30th, 2020No Comments

Federal trucking regulators have issued a proposed change to hours-of-service rules that would increase truck drivers’ flexibility with their 30-minute rest break and with dividing their time in the sleeper berth.


The proposal, announced on Aug. 14, also would extend by two hours duty time for drivers encountering adverse weather and expand the current 100 air-mile “shorthaul” exemption from 12 hours on-duty to 14 hours on-duty to be consistent with workday rules for longhaul truck drivers.
