Are you ready for the 34-Hour Restart Rule Changes??
July 1 is quickly approaching, and with that date comes the changes in the hours of service rules. The biggest impact to the industry will be the new requirements of the 34 hour restart. Drivers who work a 5-day work week will likely not be affected, but drivers who have used the restart in the past to maximize their 60 or 70 hour clock will feel the pressure of these rule changes. The rule changes in brief: Restart must include two periods of 1am-5am, and can only be used once every 168 hours (once a week).
