NEW REGULATIONS: Truckers’ Hours Reduced
Truck drivers have new regulations to pay attention to as of the first of the month. Truck drivers are now required by law to work fewer hours in a week, dropping from 82 to 70. If a driver reaches the 70 hour maximum they must rest for 34 consecutive hours. Drivers will now have to take a 30 minute break in the first eight hours of a shift.
