Does the Hours of Service rule impact passenger-carrying drivers in any way?

The only amendments that affect passenger-carrying drivers are the change to the on-duty definition, which allows time spent resting in a parked vehicle to be considered off duty, and the penalties provision, which categorizes as “egregious” any violation of the driving-time limit by 3 or more hours (thus authorizing maximum penalties).
