    And I use Drivers Daily Log and STILL write the recap! I'm a grown man and know how to keep company and DOT cops off my ###! It's not a big deal! Do it the same way every time every day!

    If it isn't a big deal, why do you keep bringing it up?

    I'm a grown-up too, and choose not to use the recap as I'm not required to by either my company, nor any regulation. I include the minimum information required by law and nothing more, i.e., I don't include a descrition for any duty-status change. As has been suggested by a former federal DOT officer on this forum, the more information there is, the more opportunities for being hung during an inspection/audit.

    And even someone as perfect as me makes the occasional mistake.

    With the restart available, doing the recap is pretty much a moot point these days. If you need to do it because of not getting a restart, it's 1 thing, but that rarely happens for me anymore, I sometimes get 2 or more in a week.

    The only time I do the recap is if I'm getting near to 3000 miles in a week, and that doesn't happen very often.

    I actually have had several comments on mine (13 inspections in the last 17 months (4 level 1, 5 level 2, 4 level 3). Without exception they have commented on the neatness and legibility, several even stating they wished more drivers would prepare and present their logs like I do, and how much they appreciated it as it made their job easier.

    The comment I was referring to is the fact that I do not do the recap or the front of the log book.

    They have made the same comment about neatness to be as well.

    Same here ... everything that's required, and nothing more.

    My book is neat, legible and in big clear letters, however no I do not fill-out the re-cap bullshyt. Cop nor d.o.t cat ever had a problem with it. But if in doubt, just fill. To be on top i think it's best to just fill it out. Its more work though, more ink and more bullshyt.

    As is mine. I do fill out my recap though. Its just habit now. I've always filled it out to keep track of my hours each week and how many I have left. Makes it easier to figure out when I'm going to have to start fudging or worse cheating.
