The time is nearly over to comment on the proposed changes to the hours of service rules for us truck drivers. Here is a video about it and how you can make your voice heard. We only have until Oct 10. You can comment more than once, in fact as many times as you like.
I encourage everyone to carefully consider this. Please, be professional in your comments. Some of the comments are profanity laced and all caps, this doesn't do anyone any good. They will just be ignored.
Some drivers have said they would like their clock to stop for 3 hours off duty each day for traffic or to rest. I am not a fan of this, I don't want the day made longer without being paid. Don't strive to work more, strive to make more.
See you on the road!
Hi! Welcome. I'm Mark and I've been a professional truck driver for over 33 years, the last 19 years at the same company. It is time that drivers got paid for every minute that we work and we are treated like the licensed professionals we are.
