Uber & Taxi Drivers Will Be Required To Fully Rest After 12 Hours On The Road

Posted by OneTransitAdmin

As teased back in February, the Taxi and Limousine Commission has voted unanimously to tighten its shift regulations for all drivers of city taxis and for-hire vehicles, in an attempt to target driver fatigue. Beginning in November, drivers will be capped at driving 12 hours in a 24-hour time period or 72 hours in a week, and any violation will lead to fines and/or suspension.
