    govols019 You smell that?

    If I've taken my full meal already and I get that red screen that says I must take another 30, I just laugh and roll on....if I'm pushing 16 there's no way I'm stopping.

    Nobody has ever said anything to me about it.

    What happens if I go over 14 hours?

    Orion actually has your last 20 stops in the correct order.

    There are exceptions. (Not saying that's the case here). Of course- you are obviously much smarter than me.

    I know that when we were slammed last summer, guys quitting left and right, a lot of the older drivers were parking well into he night on Fridays....as long as they didn’t go off property, APPARENTLY it was fine to go over 14 hours...
  7. You can work as many hours as you want just as long as you're not on the road

    It's meant to be used for unforeseen circumstances, like weather related or an accident that shuts down a highway that literally prevent you from getting off the road in under 14. It can't be used just give you 2 more hours of work.

    Not necessarily.
    There's two different 2 hour exception rules.

    The adverse conditions exception extends the 11 hour drive time to 13 for inclement weather or things like accidents.

    The short haul exception extends the 14 hour on duty time to 16 hours for general delays, like a late train which is what it's usually used for here.

    You can't use both of these exceptions on the same day.

    still have to log it . when i was hauling tomatoes we practically worked around the clock. go until you pass out 7 days a week because of the 100 air mile agriculture rule. not sure if that is still the way it is.this was back in 80"s.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    The fact that we are even discussing this in mid May tells you how completely :censored2:ed the company we work for is.

    PASinterference Yes, I know I'm working late.

    They could prepare by not running a skeleton crew year round. Peak wouldnt be so bad, along with emergencies like this.
    But I'm sure your "former center" was staffed wonderfully so you didnt have these problems.

    The way some people are ordering junk , they prolly consider this pandemic a blessing.

    After 2 months of it with no end in sight I’d probably consider at least attempting to make some adjustments.

    I spoke with my former center manager during this past Peak and he told me that they were fully staffed with 60 routes on road. They had never run anywhere near 60 routes when I was there.
