Example #9 ---- 14 Hour Rule


14 Hour Rule

Day 1 No Violations


Day 2-- Violation starts at: 1:00 PM -- Violation last for: 0.25 Hours -- Rule Violated: 14-Hour Rule -- 395.3(a)(2) USA (Red Arrow)

Example # 9 -- Sleeper Berth Provision with violation -- Under the new 05 rule even if the driver is in violation of the rules (11/14 hours rule) the eight (8) hour sleeper MUST excludes from the 14 hour rule. The violation stands, Compliance with the 11-hour and 14-hour rules is recalculated from the end of the first of the two periods used to obtain 10 hours of duty. In this example 8:00am.

Notice: In this example the driver used a combination of off-duty and sleeper berth time from 5:00am to 8:00am for the 1st period. This time dose not exclude from the 14 hour rule and must be count when calculating the 14 hour rule.
