Your hours of service would start counting down from 14 at whatever time you started work.
At my building you would remain on shifting to make those moves. It's too much work to add legs and inbound/outbound for a 5 minute trip.
Ok so if shifting isn’t considered driving then how many hours could you potentially work shifting?
As many as you want. HOS regs only limit the amount of time you can drive a commercial vehicle on the road. We have guys who routinely hit 15-16 hours shifting on the yard after they finish their last road leg.
Wow. Good to know if I wanted to earn some extra cash.
How does this affect their 10 hours off before their next start time unless, of course, they are coverage?
They still have to have 10 hours off before the next shift if that shift involves driving on the street. Not sure if that’s the case if you’re working in the yard the next shift.
They pull that move on Saturday morning, so they still get their 34 hour reset before Monday.
You only need 10 hours off if you will be "on road."
If you never leave the yard, no part of the HOS applies.
You do not need 10 hours off and you can work beyond 14 hours.
Hell, you don't even need a CDL if you never leave the yard.
all paid hours are hours of service
So who is right?
Both, all paid hours count towards HOS but if you don't leave the yard HOS doesn't matter.
You could drive up to your 60 hours for the week and stay late or work another shift on the yard... You just can't drive on road. You would then need a reset before going back on road.
Same with driving up to your 11 or 14 daily. If you run out of drive time you could stay and shift 12 more hours if they would let you, but all those hours count towards your 60 for the week and you need 10 hours off before going back on road.
This woman knows.....but she can't remember how many years she drove.
Ask her about chaining up at the top of Mount Everest to bring Supplies to Mexico
She just hammered down and plowed through it as I recall.
Steering wheel in one hand, 45 in the other.
My kind of woman!
So BETPA ended up running out of equipment so they sent about 10 of us out of NEWPA with empty sets. Get there and now all of us get to bobtail 270 miles back. Cant get any easier lol
Yea and they'll have 10 BETPA guys run loads down to NEWPA. I once had to go pass the airport(15 mins away) to go to the railyard(an hour and a half away) so a driver at the railyard could go to the airport cause the train was late.
We had a guy take an empty set to a meet point 4 hours from our building, then pulled a different empty set back. lol.
We once had two guys do that...problem was they were both from our building and their loads were actually at the meet point. I think they were about 100 miles from the meet point before they were sent back for their actual loads
