The FMCSA’s rule making was upheld with the exception that ATA prevailed in its challenge to the applicability of the rest break to short haul drivers

August 5, 2013


  1. There will be NO change to the restart rule that became effective on July 1st
  2. The 30 minute rest break rule does NOT apply to local, short haul drivers (100 air mile radius drivers) but DOES still apply to all drivers required to complete a logbook.
