    It is not that hard, I have ran ELD s, I made a lot of money that year , doing mostly oversized loads, The 1 size fits all is stupid, the 10 hour rule is stupid. Sometimes you take 12, or the whole day off. The drivers should be able to decide on their own. Do some research into sleep, what you find, might surprise you

    No! one size fits all is deserved because we have very stupid people in this industry thinking they can do what they want and don’t give a crap what happens, while I and millions of others do.

    Until drivers get off their butts and demand holding others accountable, we will have these stupid regulations and politicians acting like they are doing something right.

    HOS isn’t about you, it is all about all of us.
     
    peterd and Bean Jr. Thank this.

    All they have to do is allow the clock to stop when off duty that way people can take rest break whenever they want and not worry.

    Going off duty for 2 hours doesn't stop clock.
    What if I only need to stop for 40 minutes such as going to store.
