30 minutes on duty not driving can count as your break now.

Yeah I know that. This is what confused me: With the move away from the OFF DUTY time requirement for breaks

What move away from that? I still fuel in off duty, pull forward and then put it in On Duty/fueling, run in to the bathroom, sometimes grab a drink, get my receipt and can do all that in 30 mins....now I don't have to worry about doing all 30 minutes in Off Duty and then add a little bit of time for fueling.

The 30 minutes can be taken in any combination of on or off duty time. This SHOULD make the peoples fuel island time less since filling up now counts toward the 30 instead of having to fuel up then do 30 off duty to satisfy it.

Not to correct you but technically you should be in On Duty/fueling while fueling THEN change to off duty when you go doodie and all that...lol.

Yep Mikey is correct. Don't falsify your logs. Fueling must be done "on duty". I've NEVER seen DOT camped out in any truckstop (being snarky here, because I absolutely have).

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.

Yeah I know. I'm usually sitting behind someone for a bit, so I just leave it in Off Duty and then change. There may be DOT in a Truck Stop, but I've not seen any on the past 4-5 years.

I could care less if someone takes their break on the fuel island as long as they are not blocking anyone. Problem is alot of these brain surgeons are inconsiderate. I have more than once had to ask people to move. It seems like it is on the rise these days.

There was a big uptick in "3 MPH Moving Around The Lot" when we went from the AOBRD to ELDs.
