Log book examples help explain the various provisions of the Hours of Service Rules outlined in 49 CFR 395. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has created a book that contains 30 examples of the Hours of Service Rules. This book contains 26 examples that focus on the Hours of Service Rules for property carrying commercial motor vehicles and 4 examples that focus on the Hours of Service Rules for passenger carrying vehicles.
Each example in the book includes:
- One or more completed grids from a driver’s daily record of duty status (RODS) or log.
- A brief description of any violations that may exist; and
- An in-depth explanation of the Hours of Service Rules as they apply to the sample driver’s daily log/record of duty status (RODS).
