    As of January of this year, the maximium shift for a driver is 14 hours, with 11 of them being driving hours with a 70 hour total for 8 days. They keep log books and will be able to recored this.

        Truckers Hours

        I believe that the following site answers many questions about the federal law and truckers: http://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/Home_Files/hos/hos_faqs.pdf

        Texas wage and hour law may be found at: http://www.twc.state.tx.us/customers...jsempsub7.html

        I couldn't find anything in Texas regulations that covers trucking. However, it is best for you to contact the state.

          My response was for Federal Laws. As we all know, there are execeptions to every rule
