The four specific areas being considered for revision are:

  • Extending the current 14 hour on-duty limitation by up to 2 additional hours when a truck driver encounters adverse driving condition.
  • Revising the current 30 minute break for truck drivers after 8 hours of continuous driving.
  • Reinstating the option for splitting up the required 10 hour off-duty rest break for drivers that operate trucks with sleeper-berth compartment.
