Hi there, Rick with Smart Drive Test talking to you today about log books and for truck drivers and bus drivers, the number one way that you're going to get a fine is a violation in your log book. To keep in compliance with hours of service regulations we're going to talk to you today about the graph. In the previous video we talked about the information that goes around the graph and the reasons why that information needs to be filled in and how to fill that information. Today we're goingh to talk about the graph. So that if you get pulled into a scale, or pulled over by authorities you're not going to work for free. We'll be right back with that. (OPENING CREDITS & MUSIC) Hi there, Rick, welcome back! Talking today about the log book in the graph on the log book As you can see there are four lines on the log book: 1) the first line is off-duty. You are not driving, you are not anywhere near the truck. The truck is parked and you are away from the truck, that is the first line. Breaks are logged as off-duty time. 2) The next line is the sleeper. If you are logging time in the sleeper berth, it must be a sleeper berth unit on a truck. That guy just ran over my face! Did you see that? Bloody Volvo drivers? You can't be sitting in a seat or crouched over the steering wheel sleeping and log it as sleeper berth time. It must be a manufactured sleeper berth that is on the back of the truck with a bed unit in it. 3) The next line is driving. Any time that you are behind the controls of the vehicle, you are driving. Even if you're stuck in traffic and have been sitting in congestion for two hours, you are driving. So log it as driving time. 4) The last — number four on the graph is on-duty, not driving. Any time that you are doing safety sensitive duties where you responsible for the truck, the freight on that truck or on the side of the road attending to a crash on-duty, not driving. Those are the four lines on the log book. The first fundamental rule of log books: the ruler! Always use a straight edge; use a ruler, get your bank card out - whatever you need to do to make the log book neat and legible - write legibly. If you can't... if you're writing is not legible, print. But use a ruler. The line on the log book has to be a continuous line from midnight of the previous day to midnight of the day in which you're working and logging information. When you use a ruler and you draw the graph, as you can see here in the video, put a point where you're going to draw the line to, put your ruler on, draw to the point. That will help you to make sure that you draw the line to the exact space of seven fifteen, eight o'clock or whatever it is. So use the point. In conclusion, today we talked about the lines on the log book—the graph lines—1) off-duty 2) sleeper berth, 3) driving time, 4) on-duty, not driving. Those are the four lines on the on the log book. Off duty and sleeper berth time are both off duty lines, however, sleeper berth time is in a unit that has a sleeper berth unit on it. You can't can be sleeping in a seat, can't be slumped over the steering wheel, can't have a piece of plywood between the front seats - doesn't count. Sleeper berth unit.
