Yup, real nice isn't it!!! I just put it out there for others to know if they didn't already... I would seriously like to fight this, here's why- very simple, as a truck driver that is required by law to fill out a drivers log book on a daily basis, right off the batt we are regulated in the amount of hours that we can work, period... So here is another example of something that most do not know about work hours and a drivers log book- Lets say that I work 40 hours behind the wheel every week, no more no less, but, I want to work a second job flipping burgers at BK for some spare change, ANY and ALL hours worked at BK MUST be logged in your drivers daily log book as "on duty not driving" and apply directly to your remaining hours available to drive the truck at your primary job and you still must satisfy the 10 hour off period within every 24 hour period, so how in the hell can a guy ever make more money legally? Yes, this is fact as I heard it straight from the man, called the FMCSA myself and asked this very question to the regulatory supervisor and thats all she wrote... So I say that truck drivers are limited when it comes to seeking gainful employment outside of their truck driving job because of this... Again, total F'ing nonsense in my book!!!
