Your Truckers’ 34-Hour Restarts Could Last Up to 51 Hours

New regulations took effect for American truckers beginning on July 1. Previously, drivers could end their week, spend 34 hours off duty, and begin a new week as soon as those 34 hours had passed. Now, however, it's not that simple.

The new hours of service rules require two back-to-back 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. periods within the 34-hour “restart” period, which means drivers who want a true 34-hour restart must end their week within a 6-hour window between 7 in the evening. and 1 in the morning.
