By not maintaining proper driver daily logs!
Even though the ELD mandate date is approaching, you still need to know the ins and outs of this process in order to avoid potential violations.
Keeping a daily log, whether paper or electronic, is the name of the game in the trucking world. It's important for each commercial driver to keep and maintain logs to help ensure the safety of the public.
Tired and overworked drivers cause careless accidents!
In this course you will learn the difference between on and off duty, how many hours you're allowed to drive in one sitting, when a break is necessary, and how many hours you are allowed to be on duty for a 7 or 8 day period.
Learning the rules and applying them to your operations will help reduce roadside inspection violations, and keep everyone on the roads safe.
