http://www.marketwatch.com/story/tr...ens-opportunities-for-new-truckers-2012-08-06 I ran across this article today and I realized that those insane HOS rules did pass and companies are required to use them by next year. The rule requires truck drivers who maximize their weekly work hours to take at least two nights' rest when their 24-hour body clock demands sleep the most - from 1:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. This rest requirement is part of the rule's "34-hour restart" provision that allows drivers to restart the clock on their work week by taking at least 34 consecutive hours off-duty. The final rule allows drivers to use the restart provision only once during a seven-day period. To top that off, they are now required we waste 30 minutes out of our day to **** off. I heard about this crazy changes, but I didn't realize they had actually gone through. I thought our buddies over at OOIDA beat this crap.
