Max Armstrong reports on denial of a request to get an exemption from the 11-hour driving rule and 14-hour driving window. The truckers who haul livestock, insects and aquatic life requested the exemption in 2018 asking for flexibility to consider the live nature of the cargo they haul. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration claimed that the truckers did not provide adequate evidence they needed the flexibility. Max offers industry insight on the issue.
