34-hour restart
 
The DOT study showed that the strict provision didn't create any benefits, and it's been confirmed that they will be removed.

Annnnnddddd............replaced with what? A 48 hour restart? No restart at all? I personally need a solid 48 hours after a week of hard pushing. By the end, the 10 hour off becomes 12 for me. First few days, I'm ready to roll at 8 hours yet not legal for another 2 hours, but by the 4th and 5th day I'm beat and 10 hours isn't quite enough.

Only thing that is not being renewed is the 0100-0500 provision and the 1 reset per week. The 34 reset is still in effect, just went back to the original way. I never worried about it even with the once per week or 0100-0500 thing. If a reset couldn't be done, just recapped the hours and drove on. You know, the way we did it since 1938 before all this current nonsense came about.

Yep, I never worried about that silly provision the last few weeks. Running nights tends to make doing it extremely impossible!

FMCSA does all to make the drivers work less

No one has to use the 34 hour restart...
