    Considering that per osha/dot, the time we take to drive to and from a lunch location is on the clock, something as simple as breaking up your meal into 3 different spans can easially add 20-30 minutes to the day..... also, not pussing in bottles like a savage and going to the bathroom can also add a other 20-30 minutes. That’s an hour right there. Og drivers use these tricks to keep their stop count down.

    We're not allowed to break up our local lunch break here. Must be a uninterrupted 30min lunch.

    We get 1 hour to use how we want, maximum of 3 meal entry points. Must use the full hour. Pretty sure state law has 30 min uninterrupted but I never heard anybody get told anything about it. I usually do 40 min, then 10 and 10

    Did you have a big pick up that day? If you did you can easily scratch without even trying.
    They can do a lot of other things to help the driver scratch on a route.
     
  9. Nope the only thing i can say is i didn't follow Orion do to having pretty good area knowledge of the route.
