HOS Tip 2: Take a Break-It Adds Up For Hours-of-Service

Posted 04/21/14

The HOS (hours-of-service) rules can be tricky to understand and keep track of because the rules are based on several clocks which are all ticking at the same time. In this scenario, let’s figure out if the driver is compliant or not during a segment of their shift.

Our driver starts out with a 60/7 (60 hours within 7 days) clock for the week. After driving for a couple of hours and taking a few breaks, our driver’s status changes along the way too. Be sure to add up all the time to see if it’s been allocated correctly.

Q: Is this driver HOS complaint or not? Can you tell us why or why not? To find out the answer click here: HOS Tip 2 Answer
