    My carrier got nailed for falsified logs back in March . Ten per cent or less of drivers falsifying logs got us all penalized . The carrier supposedly has no tolerance for noncompliance so the drivers ran false logs by their choice . My truck HAD PrePass . When I started getting redlighted I took it out of my truck and told my boss I wasn't going to put up with that BS because the safety department wasn't competent enough to catch drivers cheating . The PrePass stayed out of my truck and nothing was said about it .

    Any of you that drive in Washington State know of this?

    "Washington State has evidently had enough falsified logbooks and of hour-of-service violations. In the past year, crash investigators found truck driver fatigue to be a factor in a number of truck crashes and drivers in eight of those accidents were found to have falsified their logbook, claiming to have driven fewer hours than they did. If you have been injured by a truck driver who may have falsified their logbook, you should contact a Kansas City truck accident lawyer to discuss your legal options.

    Washington has installed a system to capture truck data at twelve locations across the state. When a commercial truck passes through the required weigh station, the Commercial Vehicle Division uses an automated license plate reader to see how long the truck driver has been on the road that day. That data can then be checked against the truck driver's logbook to see if it is accurate. In August, 98 drivers were cited for serious violation of the hours-of-service rules over a four-day periodWashington State has evidently had enough falsified logbooks and of hour-of-service violations.

    How would that be a EOBR. Wouldn't an EOBR have to be "on board" the truck? Tag readers are recording every tag they see, running the plates through databases for stolen and registration violations.
