    Hi guys I’ve never been on this page before but I need some help. I had 45 minutes on my 14 for the day and was 11 minutes from my hotel. I blew a tire. I waited over 2 hours for roadside. Obviously I went over my 14 hour on duty limit. Am I okay? Can I legally drive to the hotel? Thanks

    Legally no you can't. In practice go ahead. You will likely get a call from safety, just explain what happened and nothing will likely come of it.

    Are you empty? PC over. Or leave the truck there and Uber over to the hotel.

    You're also probably over the 16 hour exemption by now too. You in a day cab?

    These would work for me...

    1. Time spent traveling from a driver’s en route lodging (such as a motel or truck stop) to restaurants and entertainment facilities.
    2. Time spent traveling to a nearby, reasonable, safe location to obtain required rest after loading or unloading. The time driving under personal conveyance must allow the driver adequate time to obtain the required rest in accordance with minimum off-duty periods under 49 CFR 395.3(a)(1) (property-carrying vehicles) or 395.5(a) (passenger-carrying vehicles) before returning to on-duty driving.
     
    Bean Jr. and Truckerman99 Thank this.
