Are you ready for September 29? In this edition of Overdrive Radio, we’re diving into the specifics of the hours of service changes going into effect on that date with FMCSA's Joe DeLorenzo, something of a recap from our GATS Week session in late August a month ago, for the podcast audience. The talk centers on the new flexibilities, the particulars of just what constitutes off-duty time for an owner-operator, a variety of scenarios posed by those who were participating live in the discussion, and much more about the rule. Will roadside inspectors be ready? Will ELD providers? Are you? The original presentation DeLorenzo gave was broadcast with a few slides that it’s pretty easy to follow along with if you have them.
