If you are a truck or vehicle operator who has to comply with Dept. of Transportation regulations, there are five areas that you must be concerned about.  I have organized my seminar and DVD program according to this structure, and provide some general guidance on these issues on this website:

Part One:  Who Has To Comply?
Part Two:  Driver Qualification Files
Part Three:  Drug & Alcohol Testing
Part Four:  Hours of Service
Part Five:  Vehicle Maintenance Files

    How many times in a 30 day period can a driver exceed the 100 air mile rule.

    30. There’s no limit how many times a driver can exceed the 100 air mile exception, but when he does, he has to have a log for that day.

    I generally advise if a driver is driving outside of the 100 air mile circle, or exceeding the 12 hours, multiple times a week to just have the driver fill out a log for every day, as it’s easier than bouncing back and forth between time sheets and logs. Of course, when the ELD mandate takes effect in December, that advice will change.

    we are delivering landscape materials from NY and crossing state lines fairly regularly with regular NY plates on a 17000 gvw truck. We are logging our New York highway use tax log. Do we need anything else like an Apportioned plate ? We have had no trouble so far.
