D.C. Circuit Issues Ruling on HOS Regulations

Circuit released its decision on the much maligned hours-of-service regulations issued by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). The court ruled in favor of FMCSA on almost everything. The one exception was its decision to "vacate only the agency's application of the 30 minute break to short-haul drivers." The court defines short-haul drivers as "those who operate within a local area." Click here to see a copy of the court's decision.
