Agree with Turtle, except he didn’t account for the mandatory 30 minute break and on-duty for PTI. Regardless, might have been completely legal.

24 hour clock;

...started driving at 00:01, drove for 11 hours and shut down at 11:31 (includes 30 min break) for a 10 hour sleeper break.

Completed the break, performed a 30 minute pre-trip; starting at 22:01 he would be able to drive another another 1 hour and 59 minutes and be completely legal for the same day. Way over 11 hours for a single 24 hour.

During my mentoring phase of training, this was common once teaming occurred.

He also had an HOS violation, so I wouldn't say to do it that way at all.

I thought maybe I was reading that wrong, since the only Qualcomm I have seen was in a box and the size of a laptop.

Looks like he is an hour over his 14.

Got to emember, you can stay on duty forever, even past your 14, just got to take a 10 in sleeper or off duty before driving again. Although that isn’t what it looks like this guy did.

Ah, OK, I just assumed it wouldn't show a negative unless you had a violation. Good to know.

Qualcomm:

Omnitracs (a.k.a. Qualcomm) is a satellite-based messaging system with built-in GPS capabilities built by Qualcomm. It has a small computer screen and keyboard and is tied into the truck’s computer. It allows trucking companies to track where the driver is at, monitor the truck, and send and receive messages with the driver – similar to email.

It's been a long day, I'm tired and maybe I'm just missing it. But where is the violation?

Is it the 12h 19m drive time? He can technically drive 14 hrs in a 24hr day as long as he gets in his 10 hr break.

But would the on duty show as 13h 09m? Or is that total on duty in the past 24 hours?

Good to know and explained well. Thanks!

Probably won't be an issue anytime soon for me but I will make sure I understand this.

What is really of interest to me us how it looks in real time on the device and if the legal activity appears legal or illegal upon review.

No problem my friend...

All the time Errol tutored me in math is finally paying some dividends.

Tired... Been there, like right now. 13:28 on the OD clock today.

There is a bar graph that looks very similar to a paper log. Violations are easy to see, just as they are on the paper version.

And if there is a violation? It triggers an alert to driver management and also shows up on a report safety and the logs department reviews. Chronic violators are required to take a log class, considered a warning. Beyond that policy applies.
