New HOS Rules Posted, Local Exceptions Retained

Here are the new HOS rules from the FMCSA:

Note that the exception for 100-mile-radius trucking remains intact, which is good news for local trucking operations.  The 150-mile non-CDL exception is also preserved.  In either case logbooks are not required.   The exceptions are listed in detail on page 18 of the document.
