Thread: Short-haul drivers exempted from break requirement

    Short-haul drivers exempted from break requirement

    The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has issued a final rule providing an exception to the mandatory break requirement for short-haul drivers.

    According to the final rule, if a driver qualifies for the 100 air-mile radius exception or the 150 air-mile short-haul exception, he/she is not required to comply with the 30-minute break.

    This rule is in response to a decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit that vacated the mandatory 30-minute break provision for short-haul drivers.

    This exception only applies to drivers qualifying under the 100 air-mile radius exception or the 150 air-mile short-haul exception. All other drivers must continue to comply with the mandatory break provision, and shall not drive if more than 8 hours have passed since the driver’s last off-duty or sleeper-berth period of at least 30 minutes.

    The final rule took effect on October 28, 2013.
