Proposed FMCSA Pilot Program Allows CDL Drivers To Pause Daily On-Duty Time Up To Three Hours


The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is proposing a new 3-year pilot program to allow CDL drivers to pause their 14-hour maximum daily on-duty time under certain circumstances.

The pilot program is important to petroleum marketers because a pause in driver daily maximum on-duty time would increase driver productivity and provide more scheduling flexibility than is allowed under the current HOS rules.
