Hours of Service Court Decision Ends Battle, Not War

WASHINGTON — U.S. Circuit Judge Janice Rogers Brown wrote that the recent federal appeals court decision on the new hours-of-service rules “brings an end to much of the permanent warfare” between regulators, safety advocates and the trucking industry. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit decision, which upholds most of the new truck driving rules, may have ended the battle, but the war over highway safety is far from finished.
