Example #6 ---- 14 Hour Rule


14 Hour Rule


AA driver may not drive beyond the 14th hour after coming on-duty following 10 hours off-duty.

No violation on Day 1.

Example # 6 -- Sleeper Berth Provision -- Eight (8) hours BUT LESS THAN 10 hours in the SLEEPER BERTH ONLY, will (MUST) exclude from the 14 hour rule.

If the eight (8) hours is part of a Sleeper-Off Duty combination that equals 10 consecutive hours, then the eight (8) hours DOSE NOT exclude from the 14 hour rule.

The 8 hour sleeper from 4:00am to 12:00pm is 8 hours and is part of a combination sleeper and off-duty period that equals 10 hours, therefore the 8 hours sleeper dose not excludes (extends) from the 14 hour rule.  10 hours in either off-duty, sleeper, or a combination of off-duty/sleeper always resets the 11/14 hour clock. DDL shows this as a 0 in the grid marker

A reset of the 11-hour and 14-hour rules is calculated from the end of the 10 hour break. In this example 2:00pm 

NOTE: You must still calculated the 60-hours 7 days, or 70-hours 8 days, to determine if you have a full 11-hours or 14 hours available.
