The DOT Roadside Safety Blitz dates have been set- June 7 – 9, 2018. During these three days, roadside inspection activity will be greatly increased… so please be aware!!

Every year, the DOT has an area of emphasis that garners a little extra attention. This year, the emphasis of the Roadside Safety Blitz is on Hours of Service. So please make sure of the following:

1. Make sure that the laminated Peoplenet instruction sheet is in your truck and available for inspection. This will likely be requested. Get one IMMEDIATELY if you do not have one!

2. Make sure that you have at least 8 blank paper log sheets available for
inspection. These are for use ONLY upon my approval but must be ready at all
times.

3. Make sure that you DO NOT violate ANY hours of service rules for 8 days prior to the start of the Roadside Safety Blitz. Those violations are subject to citations or warnings
that will affect our CSA score negatively!

BE CAREFUL STARTING MAY 29!

If you have any questions about the hours of service rules including:
A. 11 hour driving violations
B. 14 hours of duty violations
C. 30 minute break violations
D. 70-80 hour week rule violations

Please give me a call to make sure that you
clearly understand the rules. If you have ANY questions, I will be happy to explain.
