    Interpretation for 395.8:

    Question 26: If a driver is permitted to use a Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) for personal reasons, how must the driving time be recorded?

    Guidance: When a driver is relieved from work and all responsibility for performing work, time spent traveling from a driverís home to his/her terminal (normal work reporting location), or from a driverís terminal to his/her home, may be considered off-duty time. Similarly, time spent traveling short distances from a driverís en route lodgings (such as en route terminals or motels) to restaurants in the vicinity of such lodgings may be considered off-duty time. The type of conveyance used from the terminal to the driverís home, from the driverís home to the terminal, or to restaurants in the vicinity of en route lodgings would not alter the situation unless the vehicle is laden. A driver may not operate a laden CMV as a personal conveyance. The driver who uses a motor carrierís Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) for transportation home, and is subsequently called by the employing carrier and is then dispatched from home, would be on-duty from the time the driver leaves home.

    A driver placed out of service for exceeding the requirements of the hours of service regulations may not drive a Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) to any location to obtain rest.

I have been in arguements with our fleet manager about the 100 mile rule and he does not want to accept that, he want's me to do the log book like I am a OTR driver. With this new F550 he say's if I even go to the store on my day of I will have to record that as driving. But I think he is wrong on that also. Where I used to work, and we were local, they have gravel trains etc. and they never kept log books. If I worked 80hrs on the dozer they drove for 80hrs hauling dirt and we had no problems with DOT. So I think the situation I am in now is the same thing. The only thing I think I should have to do is a 7 day prior and make sure I have hours available to drive to the next job if over 100 miles from previous job. I think I am correct on this but that is why I am asking. I also think my fleet manager is making more paper work than needed for me.
    Your new fleet manager is trying to make you comply. Sounds like your old job was not doing it as they were supposed to. All the time on the dozer counts toward your 70 hrs. You need a log now because your company requires it. If they do not do the 5 items of the short haul provision (100 air mile radius driver) of completing a grid style log, then you need to complete a log book.

    I guess my main concern is on my day off if I go to the store or do laundry I will not be in a log book violation. But my truck hauls my tools and would that make the CMV a laden CMV?

    I thought if you stayed within a certain distance you did not have to do a log, until you went over the 100 mile radius. But were I used to work he does alot of screwy stuff. As tuff as it is to get a job anymore, people will do just about anything to make a buck.

    Your company has a choice running local. If they decide to log, you must comply. I worked for one company like that. Just because one of the drivers run outside the circle they made the whole company log.

    Common misconception. It's a 2 part law:

    ~ Class A:

    Any combination vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 LBS or more, provided the vehicle(s) being towed have a GVWR of 10,001 LBS or more.

    ~ Class B:

    Any vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 LBS or more.

    As a example, a dump truck with a GVWR of 56k towing a 1k trailer would be a class B vehicle.

    A ford F350 towing a 10,000 LB trailer would be a class C, if they were hauling hazmat.

    True.

    But the combination he described is OVER 26,001 lbs and makes the rest moot.

    Not exactly. The example I gave you of a dump truck with a GVWR of 56,000 LBS towing a 1,000 LB trailer is still a class B vehicle, because the trailer doesn't weigh over 10,000 LBS.
