FMCSA Hours of Service Regulations

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulates the trucking industry and enforces federal trucking laws and regulations. One such regulation is the hours of service regulation, which was designed to improve the safety of the motoring public by reducing truck driver fatigue.

The FMCSA's hours of service rule:

  • Limits the maximum work week for truck drivers to 70 hours.
  • Allows truck drivers who have reached the 70 hour limit within a week, to resume driving after they have rested for 34 consecutive hours.
  • Requires truck drivers to take a 30 minute break during the first eight hour shift.
  • Enforces an 11-hour daily driving limit and a 14-hour workday.

Hours of Service Violations

Historically, truck drivers have a dangerous habit of logging too many hours on the road and habitually driving fatigued, which can be compared to driving while drunk. In many cases, such drivers were under pressure from their employers to drive for hours on end to increase profits and shorten delivery time.

Due to this widespread problem, trucking companies and drivers who commit egregious violations to this rule face harsh fines, which are strictly imposed by the FMCSA.
