Are my drivers required to show when they stop for fuel on their BigRoad driver logs?
Question submitted from a NASTC Customer
Dear Marc, after reading the blog, “Are drivers required to show when they stop for fuel on their BigRoad driver logs?” I am wondering about flagging every on/off duty switch. If the driver is loading, unloading, or resting, do we need to mark that in the notes section? Do we need to note 30-minute breaks, or can we note that we were off duty 30 minutes?
