Driving for long periods of time without taking breaks increases the risk of accidents that can harm you, your passengers and other road users. How often do I need to take a break?

During this time you will not be able to log on and take trips. What gets counted as in-trip driving time? This time starts from the moment that you accept a trip until the time the trip finishes (either drop off or cancellation).
