ARLINGTON, Va. – The US Court of Appeals has granted a 90-day stay of its mandate to eliminate the 11-hour driving day and 34-hour reset from the US hours-of-service regulations, falling well short of an eight-month request made by the American Trucking Associations (ATA) and supported by the Canadian Trucking Alliance.

The ruling means the existing rules will remain in effect until Dec. 27. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has until then to convince the Court that the two provisions of the hours-of-service are justified and pose no safety threats.

The ATA responded by voicing confidence the three-month timeframe is enough for FMCSA to satisfy the Court that the two provisions in question do not pose any safety risks.
