Changes in the notice of proposed rulemaking include allowing drivers to pause their 14-hour on-duty clock for up to three hours and extending split sleeper berth options for drivers. The proposal also includes flexibility around the 30-minute break and allowing drivers to extend the 14-hour on-duty window for adverse conditions. The proposal would also expand the on-duty period for short-haul drivers from 12 to 14 hours and extending the short-haul radius from 100 air miles to 150 air miles.
