Hours of Service Back in Court

December 19, 2007: Public Citizen filed a motion asking the U.S. Court of Appeals to reinstate the 10-hour driving limit and end the 34-hour restart. The motion blasts the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) for ignoring driver health and safety, and the orders of the court in two previous rulings.

The Teamsters Union is supporting the Public Citizen motion. Hopefully the court, which has twice ruled against the FMCSA on this issue, will soon order them to comply with the law as passed by Congress.
