    I talked to a FMCSA rep at MATS in Louisville yesterday. If everything goes as planned, they will be in ALL trucks in 2017.

    While I'm not downplaying drivers who "Fudge" their logbooks I can't help but wonder how this will effect the LTL sector.
    I know their are guys who run like hell and don't take breaks, But how in the hell does that compare with some shinny wheels going coast to coast running 3 log books?
    One would think there are enough "Protections" in place in LTL to prevent the really heavy abuse that the DOT is *****'in about.
    Remember that the Company will catch as much hell as the driver when caught, So why would the Company allow voilations?
    We turn Logs in after every trip, The Company is suppose to have a clerk go over them and catch problems. So someone please explain to me why "Big Brother" would care about LTL?
    Am I missing something here?

    No you're not. IMO just another example of regulatory overreach.

    LTL no worries......
    They pretty much all fly right.
    Now the truckload folks already have them because the drivers have issues with their math skills.
    I know many owner operators that this will really put the screws to. Drive an hour to load and sit their waiting to load as the 14 hour clock ticks... I see a lot of capacity leaving the industry.

    The drivers that short logging on a consistent basis will feel this the hardest. The leatherasses that run 600+ miles a day 6 days a week will cry the loudest. If you look, a majority of truckers are running e-logs. We (paper loggers) are in the minority.

    You are unquestionably the biggest horse's arse on this forum. My bid is 446 miles, and I had to go to bed twice last winter, not that that's ANY of your business. If in 11 hours of driving AND 14 hours of duty, with a 62 MPH tractor, I can't go 446 miles then I guess I'll go to bed. That's why we carry a CLC card!
    If you don't want to appear as more of a fool than you already do, you should confine your cry baby comments to subjects on which you have at least a bit of knowledge.
