New Hours-of-Service Logbook Examples Now Available
The FMCSA has posted a new document on its website illustrating 20 logbook examples under the new Hours-of-Service (HOS) rules that were published Dec. 27 of last year.
The examples include logbooks with no violations, then logbooks with violations of the rules such as the daily driving limit and 14-hour driving window, the 30-minute break provision, the 34-hour restart provision and sleeper berth use.
Most of the new HOS rules are scheduled to go into effect in July 2013, but a new definition of off-duty time and a definition of egregious violations went into effect on February 27.

The final HOS rule remains a contentious issue, as multiple suits have been filed against the new rule.
