Reminder: New HOS Rule Effective July 1

Despite pending litigation, the Federal Motor Carrier Association's revised Hours of Service (HOS) rule went into effect July 1.

The HOS changes restrict how drivers can use the optional 34-hour restart to reset their weekly driving limits of 60 hours in seven days, or 70 hours in eight days. Drivers will be able to use it only once every seven days, and it must include two periods from 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. The new regulation also requires drivers to take a half-hour rest break before driving more than eight hours. A summary of the rule can be found on FMCSA's website.
