WASHINGTON (AP) - The Obama administration is leaning toward a 10-hour driving limit for long-haul truckers but is not completely behind the idea.
The Federal Motor Carrier Administration says it favors reducing the current 11-hour limit by an hour. But the agency is listening to comments on whether to change the standard.
It also made other proposals restricting truckers' time on the road.
The public can comment on the proposed rules for 60 days. The rules will be made final next summer.
