Nothing funny or humorous about the first image...likely a fatality.

And once I again I illustrate how the road to hell is paved with good intentions. My apologies for not giving image selection more thought. I was just grabbing some of the first things I found. I'll go back to test-taking and leaver the humor to the professionals.

So just how slow were you going if they were able to write on the back of your trailer?

I had stopped at a small truck stop Friday to use the restroom....when I came out this is what someone had written in the snow on my trailer.....

Came out of the the fuel station cuz I needed to use the restroom and seen it written on there while doing my walk around before taking off again. That'd be funny though to see someone running behind me trying to draw in the snow/dirt

Hey, I got passed on the right by a Prime truck a few weeks ago...

Were you broke down in the hammer lane?

Probably the regen was not working, and the engine de-rated so he could only go 15mph

Back in the day if you even mentioned logbook hours in a casual conversation everyone would just smile, pat you on the head like a little kid, and ask you how many weeks you've been driving. Because nobody cared about being legal. We only cared about appearing legal on paper. It was a game everyone played and everyone knew it - dispatch, DOT , safety department, logbook auditors - everyone. That's how business was done, with a wink and a nod.

It has not changed as much as one might think. Sure, we are hard-limited at under 11 hours of DRIVING before we must take a reset. But, we can still find a way to do things like make a live load and a live unload in the same day yet still drive 600+ miles. It just takes more planning and ingenuity, not in figuring out how to make the paper book look legal, but instead finding ways to park where one must park to stay off the 14 hour clock unless actually moving freight.

I get at least 3,000 miles a week and often more like 3,500 miles even dealing with the ELD and the mostly live loads/unloads of the reefer world, and even without ever exhausting the 70 hour clock. I sure do not like it if I have to park in an alley or ditch or whatever instead of tucked into a nice truck stop 5-25 miles away, but whatever it takes to get the job done....

In the good old days, a driver could park where desired, roll into the appointment on time, and log as desired. Sadly, such is no longer the case. If they make that change under discussion and allow a pausing of the 14 with a 3 hour break, that sure will help a lot.

Logbook:

A written or electronic record of a driver's duty status which must be maintained at all times. The driver records the amount of time spent driving, on-duty not driving, in the sleeper berth, or off duty. The enforcement of the Hours Of Service Rules (HOS) are based upon the entries put in a driver's logbook.

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

Reefer:

A refrigerated trailer.
