If empty, tere is always the off duty driving that can be used.

I'm a company driver with Swift, they do not allow off duty driving. Probably other companies are that way, also.

Also i could be wrong but i believe that if you use the off duty driving you have to return to the point that you started off duty driving and then log it as on duty driving. I was in kind of a predicament with that yesterday, and that is the info i found both online and in the green book

Technically, I think that is how it works. Thank God I don't drive for Swift. If you had paper logs, then "anything" would be possible, until you got caught.
