Title:+Hours of Service of Drivers 
Abstract: A rulemaking action was initiated in response to the July 2007 decision by the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit that vacated specific provisions of the Agency's Hours of Service rule published on August 25, 2005. The Court invalidated two provisions: the first relates to increasing the daily driving limit from 10 to 11 hours; the second provision permits drivers to restart their count of weekly accumulations of hours after taking 34 consecutive hours off duty. The Court's mandate issued on December 27, 2007; the Agency issued the IFR to establish what hours of service are in effect.
