    You can do exactly that, I do it frequently. Two hours in either Off Duty or Sleeper Berth pauses your clock, and later on when you stop for the night, gives you the option of a partial reset after eight hours, giving you back the driving hours you used before the nap.

    Ahh, the Canadian regs... I can't for the life of me wrap my head around them. EITHER SET OF THEM

    You’re right, running in those places are 100 times easier and you should get to run 16 hours a day.

    "Schmitt Jr. filed the request on the grounds that the mandatory 10 hours off-duty break does not fit with his natural sleep patterns of five to seven hours a night."

    Great! So at least we know that he will be completely rested by having a 10 hour break. He should stop his belly aching.
