Ryan, “off duty” does not pause the 14 hour clock.

If you are off duty for at least 2 hours, then yes it does.

Do you really want to debate HOS rules again, Bruce?


Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

If the government wants to help the trucking industry, they can stop robbing transportation funds intended for road repair. Aren’t fuel taxes supposed to be mainly for maintaining roads?

Also, I wish that we could pause the 14 hour clock, and not just with sleeper berth. I’ve never understood the rational behind the unstoppable 14 hour clock. Maybe someone could enlighten me on this issue.



You can pause it with any off-duty status. Once it starts again, it cannot be stopped again until the split has been completed.

BK, yes it does.

Sleeper Berth:

The portion of the tractor behind the seats which acts as the "living space" for the driver. It generally contains a bed (or bunk beds), cabinets, lights, temperature control knobs, and 12 volt plugs for power.

Some (if not most) writing styles and subject matter/manner just cannot wear camouflage and make a change!
