    The ag product has to be exempt though. If thats not the case, then everyone and their mother can get 3 hours of driving for free.

    The milk haulers around here are certainly using this exemption. They do not touch the ELD until they get 150 air miles from where they picked the load up at. Upon the return trip, once they reach 150 air miles from where they started, they log out and keep on trucking.

    Now my question, which no one has dared to answer yet, when does the 14 hour clock starts and when does it stop??? I have asked several DOT people and they look at me like I am crazy, but no one has given me a straight answer yet.

    The way I read it, all work related to the transportation of agricultural commodities are considered 'NOT SUBJECT TO HOS". They should be logged off duty.

    The produce is packaged right? Placed in bushels boxes and palletized. Not raw ag.

    The milk haulers maybe exempt inside 150 air miles. If they have written the law as broadly as it appears the 14 would start at the 150. I foresee this going away quickly.

    Because it's in the guidance I posted... The 14 hour clock does not start until the 150 radius is breached.
