Cheating on logbook/e-logs

As long as you are understanding that you don't have to cheat, and that your employer will be fully expecting you to obey the rules, then there is no confusion on my part.

Part of this whole e-logs thing is to keep both the driver, and the company, compliant with the law. The days of running two and three log books are over.

Is that clear enough?

Thank you for your response Old School. With my clarifying the question, I did not mean to imply that there was confusion on your part. I had just reread my post and asked the same question in two different ways so I didn't want there to be any confusion with anybody. I should have reworded the question before posting it. Yes, you were clear and again, thank you for your response.

Cheating on logbook/e-logs

I just edited my question so there's no confusion on a "yes" response?

I realize a driver may get violations on logbooks/e-logs when the driver had not intended to cheat. My question is, can a truck driver make a living (lets say $30K and up) without intentionally cheating on the logbook?

Permission to Drop a Trailer

Most likely whoever the property owner/manager is, wherever you are dropping the trailer. Some places have signs disallowing it completely. Some don't care if it's short term.

Do you need permission from the company you work for?

You run out of time on 14 hr. What do you do?

Park on the street if you can (usually won't trip the elogs if you're quick). If you can't, and this is something I've done, go ahead and drive to the nearest safe place to park knowing the elogs will throw you a violation and call your company to explain. They can sometimes remove the violation on their end.

Sorry, I messed up on a previous post and didn't include the quote.

If a company removes a violation, is that legal (what authority does a company have to remove a violation)? Isn't the DOT the only one who can excuse a violation?

Permission to Drop a Trailer

Whom do you have to call (or do you?) to get permission to drop an empty or non-empty trailer of which you plan to return to?

Let's say you're at a receiver and it takes hours to unload. You run out of your hours so you can't drive away and you can't stay there. What can you legally do?

Thanks, Mark
