    How many of those hours are on duty driving?

    I am fully aware of the PSP report, just pulled a copy of mine last month. It does not assign a score or apply points to a driver.

    Sysco pushes us, just like all companies do, they don't want us going in violation, but the job needs to get done.

    They can edit logs and do.

    Friday morning I ran out of hours, however I continued home, the XATA system we run offered me a 16 hr day, so I accepted, however, I was over my 60 hrs, it threw me in violation. Had I stopped and said I was out of hrs, which I had every right to do, I would have had to ride back with someone I didn't trust, I wasn't willing to do that so in the name of self preservation I went home. The thing is I was in violation and my esteemed mgmt at Sysco will make it all go away because I got the job done. I won't hear a word about it.

    On snowpack and ice I trust only me, and Friday I was second guessing myself, so for me and mine I did the right thing by continuing on.

    That's the whole point of the PSP.
