Day Rules
1) Off Duty>=10 hours

3)No driving after 14 hours on duty
The daily rules are independant of the shift requirements-the driver must be in compliance with BOTH the shift and daily rules at all times-within the day a driver must have 10 hours off duty, as well cannot drive more than 13 hours or be 14 hours on duty.
