DRIVERS DAILY LOG SUMMARY OF CHECKS THAT MUST BE DONE ON EACH LOG WHEN AUDITED BY DOT, THE DRIVER, OR THE MOTOR CARRIER.

13-November-2006

The following items must be check against each log day. Depending on if the driver is deferring, a split sleeper driver, or running as team there are more items that must be checked. To help you, this check list has been developed. This list only covers the new Hours of Service rules that take effect on January 1, 2007. There are many more items that must be checked. To help you, all you need to do is classify what type of driver you wish to check. Then place a √ in the box if the driver meets the requirement and a Х if the driver is in violation of this section. DDL will display all violation in the remarks box, and display red in the grid for violations. DDL displays violations in this format:

VIOLATION: 2.00 Hrs Rule: 16.0 Elapsed Time Section 13(3) Canada 2007

Broken down into the following parts:

VIOLATION: This alerts the driver or inspector that a violation is going to occur and at what time, or that a violation has occurred.

2.00 Hrs The time is displaying how long the violation occurred. I.e. 2:00 hrs in this violation. Many officers use this in deciding how bad the violation is. I.e. A .25 hrs violation is not nearly as bad as a 2 hrs violation.

Rule: 16.0 Elapsed Time Rule that is in violation
