You do realize that the whole reason that more accidents are reported from ELD companies is b/c the drivers can't "hide" their mishaps anymore, right?

You are also not taking into account weather, road conditions, fault, etc.....

Just deal with it. The insurance industry is mandating it. Its coming whether you like it or not.

That also not taking into account the increase Freight being hauled, but I disagree you shouldn't just deal with it. Fight it! Doesn't mean you're going to win, but over-regulation by our government is one of this country's biggest problems. If we can't have voter ID laws because it's too hard for some people to get a free ID. We shouldn't be requiring people to buy brand-new trucks to meet electronic log standards.

That's part of the mega fleets argument...
Only way to hide said accident is to not have a report filed...

the mega fleets the are self Insures because regular Insurance won't cover them have been pushing this because they are loosing $$ on a truck to truck comparison, the mega fleets want to used eld to level the playing field...

ELD was originally a disciplinary action forced on carrier's that couldn't keep their nose clean.

Nothing personal Tom this applies to all short haul drivers

From what I've gathered you're pulling more than 70 hour weeks right now...also pulling more than 12H days..
Local inside 100 air miles (150 for TX) is limited to 12H days and 70 hours per 8 days.. unless you run log book

That 12H clock starts when you punch in at work and your required to be punched out at or before 12H is up.
Anything more you're in violation

I know all about hours of service rules in the trucking industry. USDOT must not be able to do math, b/c how do 14 hr days and 60 hr weeks calculate out correctly? Crazy. I also understand that most of those mega-fleets use green drivers, but to me the biggest threat on the roads are the guys driving POS old trucks about to fall apart.

For us, there's a rumor that the company and union got together and lobbied the USDOT to relax the hours of service rules last week and next week.
Must've been big $$ exchanged to get that pushed thru, b/c in my 32 years its never happened before.
I told my boss that unless he shows me a memo/letter on USDOT letterhead stating that they have ok'd the 70hr workweek, then I am staying at 60.
I dont believe anything that comes from my company this time of year. Too often they violate the contract to suit their needs and deal with any consequences later (of which there are rarely any).

Im kind of T'd off that we didnt get paid double time on Saturday, considering it was a forced day during a holiday.

Yeah without actual paperwork from Dot I wouldn't go over... Too easy for them to through the driver under the truck... I've had a company truck and do that to me

Sucks there's no OT either

Rather surprised you're not on a 70/7 vs the 60/6 day clock.loke the rest of brown is.

Running a log book is a PITA doing what you do electronic or not

I brought it home @ 59.10. Busted my heinie during the week to get everything delivered Avg 160 stops/day. Luckily, this truck I been driving the past 4 years is excellent in snow, best Ive ever had.

Steward on Saturday was trying to tell me we're on a "6 day punch" rule (of which Ive never heard of before -- ever).

What about electronic logs prevents you from hiding accidents? I work for companies that ran electronic logs 3 years ago and I'm pretty sure they were hiding accidents.

I didn't think double time kicked in until over 60 or after so many consecutive days over OT in a row?
