The hours-of-service regulations are an important part of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs).
They apply to commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) involved in interstate commerce and cover two areas:
- Hours of service. The number of hours which drivers can drive and/or work in a given period of time. These are hours drivers must account for.
- Drivers’ time records. What drivers use to keep track of their hours of service.
The hours-of-service regulations are designed to keep fatigued drivers off the road and, in turn, reduce the number of fatigue-related crashes.
