I'm some ways I agree with you Swadian. Unfortunately the regulations don't allow for time to get home. You run out of hours dot doesn't care if you are an hour or you are 15 minutes from home. You still have to stop for a break.

As to your question about coaches. If they are carrying people, regardless of any packages or trailers they are still a bus and follow those hos rules.

Then I have to agree that they should let a hour of leeway to get home. ELDs can easily allow that if the regulations did. But, of course, not when carrying passengers and certainly not when fatigued.

Exactly. Tho I don't understand why passenger IE buses are still on the original hos when the stupid special interest groups said they were unsafe and convince the government to change them for us truckers. It should have been for both. Even tho the current hos is more dangerous then the original ones

Then let's just change the truck HOS back to the current passenger HOS.
 
Are those air pockets in the new seat covers?

That's a 102DL3.
