Local truck and bus drivers will be permitted to work up to 15-hour days, an increase of three hours above today's maximum workload, should a new bill proposal, introduced on Monday in the Knesset Economic Affairs Committee by Transportation Minister Shaul Mofaz, be voted into law. The law will still limit drivers to only nine-hours of daily driving time, however, and will mandate that drivers who work 14-hour days take a break of at least two-and-a-half continuous hours, while those who work 15-hour days take one three-hour break, or two one-and-a-half hour breaks over the course of the day.
