    If they want to log when I get out of my sleeper to use the bathroom i'm going to do it by taking a dump on my log book.

    E-logs would show it . They automatically go from driving to on duty after a truck stops and back to driving after a truck gets up to a speed specified by the carrier . Drive time cannot be edited

    I haven't run in CT in over 20 years but they used to park in rest areas and ask drivers getting out of the truck for their log books

    I had one guy at a scale give me grief because I showed my full 10 in the sleeper (which I have been known to do) without logging any bathroom break or meals. I told him, I have a fridge & a microwave, I (#1) in a bottle, (#2) in a bag and (make myself happy) in a sock... which sample do you want? He was momentarily speechless before telling me to get lost.

    It is going way, way too far to be asking about petty junk like that and, IMHO, only the weaseliest of enforcement would ever stoop to writing violations/citations or even asking about it.

    that is not what the passenger rule states. The passenger rule is a definition of what constitutes a 10 hour rest break in a codriver situation. This does not mean that you are not allowed to be in off duty in the passenger seat for more than 2 prior going in to sleeper birth. What it means is that as part of a legal 10 hour rest break, you must have 8 hours consecutive sleeper birth time with any combination of off duty or sleeper birth making up the remaining 2 hours on either end of the rest break. This then implies that as part of a 10 hour rest break in team driving situations, you can log a maximum of 2 hours off duty.

    You realize there have been 172 changes to the regulations since this thread was started?

    I am in possession of the 2019 rule book, so it is possible that the rules have changed. Do you have a specific code to reference in regards to anything other than what I clarified on the “passenger rule”
