The article reports that the American Trucking Associations (ATA) is asking the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to delay its mandate eliminating the 11-hour daily driving limit and 34-hour restart provisions of the hours-of-service (HOS) regulations. A decision on July 24, 2007 vacated the two HOS provisions. The ATA claims that the changes would require adjustments in operations and would take months of preparations.
