Built Not Bought
Why cant everything be uniform across the US as far as rules??? I know i have only been doing this a short while but having to do a log book is retarded since SOME DOT officers dont like loose leaf logs then why do they sell them and put there approval on them?? I like using them for the obvious reasons but i havent been doing this long enough to learn every trick in the book. Rant on Rant off! So my first run in was with an Iowa DOT officer i went across scale he red lights me so i reach across the seat grab my log and my binder with all paperwork and first question after viewing my log was Where did you sleep last night my response i pulled into the Walcott IA at the 80 truck stop and dozed off in the truckers lounge he said YOU CANT DO THAT! I said why not sir? The rule states i must be off duty for 10 consecutive hours nothing says i ahve to sleep. Needless to say i was very polite and he still deemed it worth his while to inspect me but i passed with flying colors. For the most they all have been really nice cause i treat them with respect and they do the same.
