    You mean log off-duty? Or actually log-out of the Com device?

    If the shippers had to pay companies more, that cost would dwindle down to the consumers and if drivers pay increased, companies might not be able to expand or hire more drivers. It comes down to a "catch 22" where your damned if you do and damned if you don't.

    E logs no problem, as long as loading and unloading is not more then 1-1:30. Also need more parking spots for trucks, imaging all trucks come to truck stops and rest area at the same time.disaster . i think it will take couple years minimum till everything goes smooth in real time trucking .Double parking spots , and enforce loading and unloading hours for shippers and receivers

    It's unfortunate this isn't going to get thrown out but if you are going to have to get an ELD I highly recommend going with FleetUp!

    That is a lot of "MAYBE'S" with that said that is my thought as well..not counting on rates as much but, shippers/receivers will have to be an in-n-out scenario.

    They need to extend the 14 to 16-18.  I don't have a problem driving no more than 11 hours.  The problem is by the time you get unloaded and reloaded it eats up 6-8 hours of your day.  Under this model you never get your 11 hours in.  There are some days I can only get 300 miles in because of the 14 hour rule.  Extend that out to 16-18 and I bet that would clear a lot of things up.  At the end of your day you still have to take a 10.  I for one think it would work well.  Lets not forget the whole purpose of logbooks is to protect the driver so that companies can't run over them.  It seems like they are now using logbooks to target drivers now though.  The very thing that was designed to protect drivers is now being used to target them.  This is what the government does.

    I think a good idea would be to introduce a set of "swing hours" or perhaps you could call it "Freight Transition" hours. The idea is that you are allotted a pool of hours each quarter that could be drawn upon for the sole purpose of extending in-service hours for the sole purpose of having a truck off-load then transition to re-load. Once this freight transition is completed regular log hours apply. In reality taking some time to better plan you trips and transition periods "IN MOST CASES" make the transition fairly smooth.

    Here we go again, talking about something you shouldn't be…. You just have to try and be important. Well, I would hope nobody pays any attention to you. I don't worry about the log thing. Its very easy to get around if your a real owner operator. and that's if it even happens which I doubt will. More than likely it will be in court for the next 5 years. You need to stay home and go to the gym while you have a chance, just go and do some easy cardio. it will make you feel better…… Goood Luuuuucckkkk

    a lot of good points there i don't give a crap myself..i really like the point you made on shippers cleaning up there act (not that it will happen) and loading at the specified times etc..and i don't think your too far off… or at least pay you a detention ..even though you bumped the dock..i have bumped the dock before and still waited 4-6 hrs to get loaded with no pay…your right there needs to be some sort of reimbursement of our time , we will find out i guess

    That law has the power to put this country in a recession…again! The added cost is just going to come out of the consumer in the long run. American steel is going to get hammered more than it already is. No way in hell I'll be picking freight out of A.K. Steel when that goes into effect.

    Buy a 1999 or older truck, rebuild the motor = exemption from e logs.

    Drivers should get paid salary. $1000/wk after taxes, work 10 hrs a day and I'll do whatever logs they want, as long as I get my 1000/wk.
