If we cross a state line, can we still use the 150-air-mile radius exception?
Yes. Since the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations apply to interstate commerce, crossing a state line does not affect the use of the short-haul exceptions in 395.1(e). Keep in mind that if you are operating in intrastate commerce and following the state-specific hours-of-service regulations, crossing the state line places you under federal regulations.
