60/70 Hours of Service Rule

How do I know if I fall under the 60 hours/7 days, or if I am 70 hours/8 day driver?

If you working for a company that does not operate motor vehicles every day of the week must not drive after accumulating 60 hours on duty during any 7 consecutive days. You may, however continue to perform non-driving duties after these limits and not be in violation. 

If your company operates vehicles every day of the week, you must not drive after accumulating 70 hours on-duty time in any 8 consecutive days. You may, however, continue to perform non-driving duties after these limits and not be in violation.

If your still not sure ask your motor carrier.

A monthly summary sheet is one of the most convenient ways to keep track of available on-duty time. Many duty status records are in book form and contain monthly summary sheets. If, for example, you work on the 70 hours/8 day schedule, add the hours worked during the last 7 days (day 1 plus the preceding 6 days). If it totals 70 hours or more, you have no driving hours available for the next day. Remember that you can perform non-driving activities after reaching the 70-limit and not be in violation.
