    Maybe you shouldn’t be driving if you don’t know the DOT regulations.

    What are the penalties for violating the hours-of-service rules?
    Drivers or carriers who violate the hours-of-service rules face serious penalties:
    • Drivers may be placed out of service (shut down) at roadside until the driver has accumulated enough off-duty time to be back in compliance;
    • State and local enforcement officials may assess fines;
    • The driver's and carrier's scores under the Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) enforcement program can take a hit, which could result in a variety of enforcement actions;
    • The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration may levy civil penalties on the driver or carrier, ranging from $1,200 to $14,700 per violation depending on the severity;
    • The carrier's safety rating can be downgraded for a pattern of violations; and
    • Federal criminal penalties can be brought against carriers who knowingly and willfully allow or require hours-of-service violations.

    another penalty is....if you get in an accident and hurt or kill someone you may be charged with reckless driving , reckless endangerment , vehicular manslaughter , and a host of other felonies. plus lose your job, lawsuits , etc. you'll probably lose everything you ever worked for and will never have a good nights sleep the rest of your life.

    It's really no joking matter.

    Just started and there’s talk about 70 hours is the new 60 for the work week. Wasn’t sure what was what, that’s why I’m asking, So that I will be familiar with the DOT regulations.

    OP? Is that Original poster?
  20. 70 hours only under certain conditions. The company will let you know if we are on a 70 hour schedule.

    Just remember the few basic rules. You must be off if the road before you hit 14 hours including lunch and breaks.

    You must have 10 hours off duty before you can start driving again.

    Any other part time job counts towards your 60 hours and the 10 hour off duty time.

    You must have 34 hours off before your 60 hours restart.
