Rule Exemptions

I’m pretty sure this is already how it is in Illinois and has been. I went through a private school back in 2015 and passed all the portions the first try. But I remember a student got to the road test the first try and failed. When he came back he just had to the retake the road test but failed again the second time. Passed the third time.

2 moving violation in a commercial vehicle 1 in my personal vehicle

They reached out to you? So you didn’t tell them about it and they eventually found out? If that’s the case you got very lucky because my employer that would have been a termination. Anytime you get a ticket you should inform your employer pretty much immediately.

Yeah, they were the ones who reached out to me.

You still have to let your current employer know about them

New break rules in IL

Is the 30 minute break going to be paid at least?

We where told last week that we now must take a 30 minute off duty break, before the start of our 12th hour on duty.

It had been 20 minutes before.

Nothing like wasting a hour of my day in a parking lot, instead of being at home a hour earlier.

Bill Gates (Microsoft) and Jeff Bezos (Amazon) crushed by trucking!

I don’t think we’re close to the bottom. Maersk laying people off and then the JP Morgan CEO just sold off a million shares of his stock. Could be wrong but that certainly can’t be a good thing. Few wars going on, job numbers down, national debt increasing. If shipping businesses like Maersk are suddenly cutting back I’d say a deep recession is coming.

It's getting rough out here. Brokers continue spiraling out of control, and now shipping behemoth Maersk reveals a 94% plunge in 3rd quarter profits.

Hang on tight - we're nearing the bottom of this mess.

Experienced but can’t get a local position

It’s slow right now man. It’s not just you. Companies are being extra picky right now on who they are hiring. And from what I’ve seen and heard this is especially true with local companies. We’ve had local drivers on here get furloughed this year because of how slow it was.

When do violations fall of your psp report?

From everything I’ve read violations are “supposed” to fall off after three years. Crashed after five. But I’ve talked to someone who said violations have stayed on their psp after three years.

New break rules in IL

Harvey…

If California has a much higher minimum wage requirement than the federal wage requirement than it’s meets federal wage requirement and it does not need to be enforced. Otherwise it would be. Weed is legal in California is it not? It is Illegal across the board for truck drivers.

And I can post the links if you like in regards to the California rest law. It’s not required. But Marten maybe paying to err on the side of caution.

Yes, that is a great point Bruce.

Isn’t this a similar situation to the marijuana laws where federal law supersedes state laws for truck drivers?

From what I’ve just found Harvey. Multiple websites pretty much saying the same thing….

“As a result of these decisions, the law is clear that if a truck driver is subject to the FMCSA, that driver is not subject to the California overtime, or meal and rest break laws.”

It’s gonna be the same for Illinois.
