Oversized, overweight 30-minute waiver extended

Updated Jun 21, 2020

The Specialized Carriers & Riggers Association announced this week that the waiver from the 30-minute break for oversize and overweight carriers has been extended. The waiver was set to expire June 17, and the group says there will be no lapse in the waiver’s coverage.

The exemption was first granted by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration in June 2015. SC&RA says the renewal extends the waiver through June 18, 2025.

The waiver applies to all specialized carriers and drivers responsible for oversize and overweight loads that require a government-issued permit.
