34-Hour Restart Rule Rollback

RTSI has worked diligently with the ATA to help get HR83 through Congress.

Signed into law last week, the bill suspends certain restrictions that went into effect July 1, 2013:
“Section 133 temporarily suspends enforcement of the hours-of-service regulation related to the restart provisions that went into effect on July 1, 2013 and directs the Secretary to conduct a study of the operational, safety, health and fatigue aspects of the restart provisions in effect before and after July 1, 2013.”

Drivers are no longer required to include two 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. periods, and are once again allowed to use the 34 hour restart more than once a week.
