    We can be On Duty forever, no violation. Under ELD we can use Yard Move which is an On Duty status for driving around beyond our legal drive time which sometimes happens at customers when they tell us to move from the parking area to the dock area.

    What I want to know is how mega companies are instructing their drivers to use yard move. Is it strictly on shippers and receivers or only to be used when you run out of your 11 for the day? Last I heard FMCSA hasn’t fully defined the use of yard move, but I believe that it will eventually be addressed in the next few years. Well, the most obvious misuse of yard move is using it on public roads.

    We were instructed that yard move is for moving truck anywhere beside public road,and it doesn’t count against your 11,but counts against your 70.

    It doesn't really benefit to use it while there is still time on the 11 since it is an On Duty status; it is driver's prerogative to use it or not while there is time available on the 11. It is however a great benefit to use it after the 8, 11, or 14 have expired.

    I use it all the time. It can give you 3-10 minutes of more drive time every day. Sure, that’s not a lot, but it does help advance the load as much as possible each day. There are days you wish you had 5 more minutes to be able to make it to this one truck stop, otherwise, you’ll have to shut down early because there is 30 miles of not a single place where to park for the night.

    These idiots that are making these rules are having to make #### up as they go along because they dont know wtf they're doing and it doesn't make any sense. They create a rule, see all the issues that go along with it, and improvise and slightly tweak the rules to try to make it make sense, but it wont. How did trucking get like this ??? I'm frustrated and blame the generations prior I feel like I didn't even get a chance. This job ain't as fun as it looked when I was like 6 years old or sat in my middle school/high school classroom feeling like an inmate daydreaming about being on the open road on a beautiful sunny day in a big truck

    I like your wisdom and postings...........

    Why.How did trucking get like this?

    Very Few of us left that Speak up- Very Few of us left that Question things...

    Very Few of Us left that wear our hearts on our sleeves and take Pride in our jobs...Safely.

    The Newer truckers (NOT ALL OF THEM) Need the Babysitting,Hand Holding and step by step instruction because If they didn't.....They would be a Spinning disaster.......They Need the Technology to assist with their daily activities..(Hence the ELD and other devices)

    Guys that know what their dsoing out here don't even need to say a word- They Get the Job done safely-On Time and are a pleasure to share the highway with the motoring public.

    And what I have just stated here could never spark debate or Question.
