OOIDA National Call to Action – HR 5417

U.S. Rep. Brian Babin has introduced H.R. 5417, "The Responsible and Effective Standards for Truckers” or REST Act. It amends the Hours of Service regulations for truckers, allowing you to pause the 14 hour clock for a period of up to 3 hours, and eliminating the 30 minute break rule.

Truckers are urged to ask their representative to cosponsor H.R. 5417. Let your lawmakers know that:

  • Professional drivers need to rest when fatigued or to avoid congestion, adverse weather, and other road conditions that decrease safety.
  • Current HOS requirements have not resulted in statistical improvements to highway safety.
  • The REST Act does not increase maximum drive time, on-duty time or decrease minimum off-duty rest periods.
