    If a customer is late and does not honor their appointment time, and you run out of 14 hour clock: Is it legal to use personal conveyance to travel from where you are waiting to go to the door, and then use PC once again to go to the nearest safe parking after the load or unload? And if not, what are you supposed to do if the situation does not allow you to crawl under 5mph?

    Are you driving for personal reasons or work? It's an easy answer.
    Of course it's log falsification.

    You can use yard move and still be legal.

    Right. How far from the dock is he.
    I can crawl under 5mph with no issues
    I'd crawl at 1mph if need be

    But it would be legal to use yard move (on duty) after your 14 hour clock has expired and not be in violation.
    Remember, you can work as much as you wish after your 14 hours, you just can't drive after your 14 hours, at least on public highways.
    This is private property. Hence the yard move distinction.

    Your point? Seriously...

    He asked what is legal. The only legal thing to do at that point is to do a yard move and take the hit on resetting your 10 hour clock. It sucks, but it is what it is.
     
    Studebaker Hawk, flood and Tb0n3 Thank this.

    Sounds like he was not trying to go on duty

    Too bad. The laws don't allow any other options.
    Of course that does leave the option of breaking the law. It's up to the driver to gauge the risk of doing that.
     
    Tb0n3 Thanks this.

    PC is a personal move, usually bobtail to go shopping, clinic or whatever the personal issues are. Learn to use SSB, split sleeper berth to plan ahead of delivery. Very useful thing if you know how.
    As far as move.. depends how far from the dock you are located. As it was stated above, you can crawl under 5, or yard mode. But seriously, SSB is the best option I've come across so far.
     
    Tb0n3 Thanks this.
