    Less than 5 mph, low idle in 4th. Keeps me from bumping the 14 so often. Especially if I have trouble hooking up.

    It doesn't amount to much, but just touching any limit triggers a violation.

    For you maybe but you don’t know the other guy’s story. Maybe he’s needing a new roof or saving for a house or just blew up his minivan engine. In that same retrospect someone who’s working 40 hours a week Monday- Friday could say to you that you should be able to make enough in 40 hours.

    And as for a company running a guy into the ground if the hours were increased… He deserves it. If you don’t have the backbone to stand up for yourself get out of the industry and go sell beds. Don’t wait for the government to protect you.

    I personally would rather run 4 weeks straight and then take a full week or 10 days off. I think if a guy could eliminate resets on the road it would make for better home time. But again, make it the driver’s choice. Some guys hit 70 hours and absolutely need that 36 off, some guys could do a month and enjoy their time off where they want.
