Employ truck drivers? Observe new rest rules in 2004

Reminder: New federal safety rules kicked in Jan. 3 for truckers. Drivers are now allowed to spend up to 11 straight hours behind the wheel, up from the old 10-hour limit. But they're required to take at least 10 hours of rest time in each 24-hour period. That's up from the old eight-hours-of-rest rule. For details, see the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration site, www.fmcsa.dot.gov, or the American Trucking Association, www.truckline.com.
