The HOS shuffle needs to end

| October 31, 2009

Looks like the feds plan to rewrite the hours-of-service rule for what seems like the 10th time this decade.

Of course, that’s not exactly the case, but between all the lawsuits and all the tweaking, it is getting old.

This reconsideration looks to have a major impact on trucking with the possibile elimination of the 11th hour of driving and the possible end of the 34-hour reset period.

Regardless of what the new rule turns out to be, it needs to be settled once and for all. Truckers deserve better than the constant uncertainity that has become the norm in the past few years.
