What is the 14-hour rule for truckers under the Hours of Service regulations?

A trucker has 14 hours after he starts his shift to drive. In that 14 hours, the trucker may drive a maximum of 14 hours. This shift must have been preceded by a 10 consecutive hour break. Time that the driver spends off duty in that time does not extend the 14 hours.
