34-Hour Restart Provision to Extend Through February

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, December 8, 2015

The hours-of-service (HOS) restart rules for truck drivers likely will remain suspended through February, a few months longer than expected. FMCSA has said it will provide the U.S. Department of Transportation's (DOT) Office of Inspector General (OIG) its review of the restart rules in mid-December, which then has 60 days to conduct a review.


The restart rules are required to remain suspended until a final study is presented to Congress, according to a fiscal 2015 funding law enacted in December 2014. That law suspended FMCSA's rule requiring truck drivers to take off two consecutive periods of 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. during a 34-hour restart.


NASSTRAC supports the continued moratorium of the 34-hour restart provision until FMCSA provides data showing that it improves safety (Transport Topics).
