So does this mean I can work harder and longer to bring home just as much as someone back home working 40hrs a week sitting in his air conditioned office?

Why? I simple rule change will not cause those accidents. Driver in attention cause those type of accidents. 2005 till 2013 we had normal 34 hour restarts instead of the new one like we do now and guess what? During that 8 year period the trucking industry as a whole had the best safety rating it has ever had. No reason to think if we went back to the old restart that those numbers would not stay the same as it was during that same 8 year period.

Besides if it was not an issue they would not be putting it up for reevaluation again. It seriously effects the money the trucking industry makes.

An example would be due to the new restart often times drivers have to shutdown for 48 hours instead of 34. That's an extra 14 hours. And that is just one driver. And imagine that 14 hour x 3.8 million drives across the trucking industry. That's millions of lose revenue every week.

That one rule for restarts, that did not need to be fix cause it was not broken, is a game changing rule that effects everyone's revenue including the drivers pay.

Safety rules have there place no doubt but the changes they made to the 34 hour restart were not needed and should have not been done and it's negative impact is not a good thing.

In closing there was not positive that came from the rule change. In fact it's all been negative from that one rule therefore the reason it's being reexamine is the harsh economic impact it is having reverse absolutely no positive impact on safety.
