    Running dedicated freight I will just pull on up, go off duty and eat the 30 seconds of drive time.

    Everybody will be in the same boat in a few months. Got behind some guy trying to not set it off leaving the truck stop. That's annoying.

    I bet that operations manager would deny that conversation if you got dinged for log falsification.

    You can only change yard move to personal conveyance. First thing I checked was if I could edit the yard move to off duty and you can but it will just have to be PC. I've just been logging out as soon as I clock out at the end of the day. When the unassigned drive time thing pops up i reject everything. Hopefully it doesn't come back to me lol

    Every time you use yard move or personal conveyance it gets sent to the "back office". I laughed out loud when I read that. My Father in Law used to say he was going to the back office right before stinking up the house.

    They have never been too tight monitoring logs in the past. Hopefully that continues.

    yeah....maybe I should do that! We all got that message today about once done with 'trip' to 'log out'...so maybe THAT'S the 'key? I called and checked with a safety manager, to make sure everything I'm reading is making sense to what I'm doing...and was told that drivers were B****ing like mad over it. They are working to see if they can 'relieve' some 'issues' with the 5mph going up to 10mph, but it's going to take some time. I was told, on duty, yard move, can ONLY be used at a customer(ship/rec) and private property ONLY. NOW, with that being said, I didn't want to argue with them and say, a truckstop IS private property(which it is, example PA has NO IDLE LAWS, cops can't enforce it at truckstops because, they are....ding,ding PRIVATE PROPERTY)! They said I'd have to do pre-trip(7 minutes now) then go to fuel lane and get fuel when starting...and even said, 'It really sucks for you, I understand doing everything together to start your day, but this is how they (logging company, forgot the name) are telling us how to do it.

    If people would stop whining they can't break the law as easily, I'd stop sounding like a broken record.

    Should have told safety you like to do pretrip on fuel island because you leave early and it SAFER to do it under the lights. You could probably personal conveyance to fuel island and use that as an excuse if the back office complains. Safety first right
