FMCSA Announces New Regulations

The FMCSA has announced new proposed regulations for hours-of-service.

The 34-hour restart will still be available, but with an additional restriction requiring that it includes the time from Midnight to 6am on two consecutive days, and the restart can only be used once per week.

The 11 hour driving period may be reduced to 10 hours, or it may stay at 11 hours.

The old limit on on-duty time is also going to make a comeback, with a 13 hour limit which effectively requires drivers to take a one-hour break during the workday.

The Eclipse development team is already working on these new requirements.

Companies that have a subscription in place will be entitled to a no-charge upgrade as soon as development is complete.

If you do not have a subscription in place, now is a great time to get one in place so you’re covered when the new regulations go into effect no later than July 2011. Please contact us toll-free at 1-87-RAPIDLOG (1-877-274-3564).
