What do you think of the new hours-of-service rule?

DAVID SYKES
Houston, Texas
TEI

“I don’t think it’s going to be a big deal.”

PETE LANIER
Jasper, Fla.
P&M Trucking

“I don’t think it’s going to help me or the industry.”

MICHAEL EUBANKS
Quinlan, Texas
Abilene Transport

“It’s going to make it extremely tough to make a delivery at times. Parking at truck stops and rest stops will be worse. And trucks will be parking in unsafe places.”

JOE STABLER
Brent, Ala.
Southeast Logistics

“I think it’s a good thing. It gives you more time. It works out just right for me because I never run over 10 hours anyway.”

RAY HINKLEY
Parma, Idaho
Willis Shaw Express

“I want to try it out first before saying it’s good or bad.”

DAVID GROVER
Gloucester City, N.J.
Path

“It’s a bad law, and it’s not going to work. Even if it doesn’t affect your hours, it’s going to affect everybody in the long run.”

ALTON IVEY
Chattanooga, Tenn.
Schwerman Trucking Co.

“Parts of it I like -extended hours and regular break time. Some parts of it I’m not sure of, though.”

ELIJAH REED
New Orleans
Seven Hills

“I’m going to find a local job because of it – something with shorter drives, less than 10 hours round trip.”

KEN HARVEY
Fort Worth, Texas
Connor Transport

“It’s going to help me out. I especially like the fresh-70 (restart) rule.”

GLENN RUSSELL
Holdenville, Okla.
Western Flyer

“My wife and I run team, so it’s not going to bother us. It’ll probably even help us.”

LEE BOSDECK
Green Bay, Wis.
Schneider

“I don’t think it’s going to affect me since I only do shorter runs.”
