    FOS is responsible for that. Most don't have a clue how to read a log. It wasn't one of the college classes.

    Have not turned in to the brass in years. I always have it filled out, if the cops pull you over and it is not current, enjoy paying your ticket.

    I as far as I know a recap is not required to be fill out. The recap is there for you information so you know how many hours you have left. In all my DOT inspection I never had an inspector ask me for my recap if they want to know if I have hours then he can get out his calculator and do the math. Why should I make his job easy

    Yep. For us resetting every week, no need for it. Otr on a 120 you need it. That recap is so the FOS can keep track of who has what hours on Friday.

    Recap is NOT REQUIRED by DOT regs to be filed out just the grid part. Recap not mandated by law. von.

    Not true. Its not required by DOT. Been pulled over numerous times, checked my logs. I never fill out, they never questioned it.

    They don't ask for your past week,because they do it themselves when they look at your logbook. They go by your entries. After all, you signed it basically saying ever entry is correct.

    E-logs are nice, but the big draw back is now DOT officer don't look at them. They go find something else to look at.

    They will need to justify their job somehow. And regardless it will go on your CSA score.
