“There are regulations?”
“No log books, because they are a joke.”
“I’d get rid of the log books.”
“I’d make 12-hour days.”
Yates City, Ill.
“We’re forever getting messed with for things about our log books, and some people are even trying to make harsher regulations about hours of service. They need to leave us alone and let us do our jobs.”
“I might say add more hours of service, but then you have driver fatigue, and that is dangerous. I also might say to add to the weight we can carry, but then the roads start to tear up. So really I wouldn’t change anything.”
“Of course, the log book. It’s just a big rip-off.”
Gulf Coast Transport
“Log books. Those things were set up in the 1930s for people who drove on two-lane roads. We don’t need them anymore.”
“I’d change the hours of service. Anyone else in any other job can work double shifts, but we’re not allowed to.”
“Log books and weigh stations. They are both a pain.”
“I’d stop the harassment by the DOT. They’re too strict and need to lighten up.”
Fort Payne, Ala.
“I’d change the hours of service so we could drive at least 15 hours a day.”
“Log books. I think they are dangerous. If you have driven your limit and you have to take eight hours off, but you are not tired, then you will probably be tired once it is legal for you to drive again.”
