The United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit rejected the 30-minute break requirement for short-haul drivers. A short-haul driver is defined by FMCSA as one who either operates a vehicle that does not require a CDL or who operates within a 150-mile radius of the location where the driver reports to and is released from.

Other provisions of the new Hours-of-Service(HOS) rule, including the 34-hour restart rule, were upheld.
