    Is DDL Legal

 

11-Aug-2008 FMCSA issues an 'Official' clarification on when the 14 hour clock starts when coming out of the 8 hour sleeper.

We have received an 'Official' Letter from FMCSA on our request from FMCSA regarding the 8 and 2 'clarification' that we requested earlier and received via email.

FMCSA Letter 11Aug2008_8and2

DDL is 'hard coded' to match the FMCSA clarification.  Thus logs turned in will pass all log auditing systems. 

We discovered via informal audit, that all the log auditing software (including DDL iTruck) - with the exception of 1 from State College PA - allowed for the 'lenient' interpretation.  This 'lenient' list includes J.J. Keller, Scanware, TDSM, and RAIR, as well as some 'in truck' software that we tested.

Somewhere along the way in year 2005 we all adopted the 'lenient' interpretation. 

What this means to you the drivers.

When you come out of the 8 hour sleeper break, your 14 hour clock will start ticking. So if you log say 8 hours in the sleeper, then log 1 hour off duty. You have started your 14 hour clock when you went off duty and have used 1 hour.

We learn of this during a CVSA meeting where this was brought up. Most officers believed as we did that you did not start your 14 hour clock until you logged Driving (Line 3), or On Duty Not Driving (Line 4). However over 90% of the Law Enforcement Officers believe that once you left the sleeper for any reason your 14 hour clock started. This letter clearly states this believe.
