Relaxed HOS Regulations: How Truck Drivers Help Us Survive

As supply shortages spread across the country, Americans are becoming increasingly more dependent on truck drivers. From coast to coast, consumers are demanding more supplies to be manufactured and delivered. Truck drivers are the key to delivering necessary goods to consumers quickly and efficiently, however, they can only drive so many miles in 11 hours.

The FMCSA has recently relaxed HOS regulations to help remedy the national emergency. Drivers who haul medical supplies, hand sanitizer and disinfectants, food for emergency restocking, etc. do not have to abide by the 11-hour and 14-hour rules. They can now drive as long as they are safely able to, as long as they take a full 10-hour break between shifts.
