    I shortened the quotes post above. I just wanted to highlight one or two things for the newer drivers out there do to the wording of the above quoted post.

    1. The above is correct there us no violation.. .until you start driving, in fact all violations on like that when it comes to the hour related rules. So make sure to read your previous days log before you sign off on it so you know if your hours are going to be effected more so if you haven't taken a 10 hour yet.

    2. Also remember there is a difference between company policy and the state and federal regs. Its important to know the difference because ( and I ran I to this because I was young and dumb :) )
    If your company says ya sure X is fiiiinnneeee, but that state trooper whips out the book and says 393. What ever the hell says your company's wrong....then guess what, your company's wrong and there's a violation on the inspection.

    3. Last but not least. There are truck drivers and there are people who drive trucks. Be the first not the second take pride in the work and effort you out in to get the cdl we all carrie, if more did truck drivers would have a better image then what is current sadly.

    Also more props to stayingback up above I second and or third that guys post :D

    Personal Conveyance is great if the company you work for Allows it. Unfortunately though, not all drivers have access to Personal Conveyance. I know Roehl Didn't allow any PC whatsoever. With Jrayl PC is allowed only if your told to move, otherwise its not allowed. Just saying, not everyone has that option.

    Yard move is not legal in Canada. There is no option for it here.

    That might have been a secondary reason why Roehl didn't allow PC, since I know they run to Canada quite a bit. I know that the primary reason for the rule though was because of Fuel usage. (Lease operators were exempt from the rule.) I believe it was the same reason why inverters at Roehl had a three hour time limit on it. (I believe a company driver was only allowed to use the truck's inverter for three hours out of a 10 hour period.)

    Me too. there was more micromanagement than this; but I felt like I was at a babysitting service rather than a driver. Even though I am stuck with a $7,000 bill now; I see my termination from the company as a blessing rather than a curse, as I am driving for a much better company now.

    Elogs have put me in line for the most part, but the 70 hour rule has got to go. Its completely idiotic that somehow safety increases due to this. 34 hours stuck in the sleeper is actually cruel. Do they expect me to spend that 34 hours on vacation and running errands around town in a 70 ft truck??

    Especially if you aren't allowed to use PC to run such errands.. guess were just expected to take an uber then.

    I would pay good money to see some of those guys in DC confined to a truck stop for 34 hours. I hope its a stop with only 4 day old roller dogs available.

    But you didn’t trip plan if you only have that to eat. (Insert sarcasm here)
