Split Sleeper HOS - Guide & Examples from Switchboard 


With Split Sleeper:

The two breaks can be taken in either order.  Successful completion of both the 2-8 hour period and the 8-10 hour period will give the driver a new starting point for the 14 hour driving window.

  • The starting point of the 14 hour window will begin at the end of the first period, no matter which came first.

When Split Sleeper is detected, Switchboard Hours of Service timers will adjust accordingly!
