If drivers do not confirm they are no longer driving when stopping the vehicle, an additional 6 minutes of driving time could be added to their logbook. Here’s why.
When a vehicle stops after a driving segment, the driving duty status remains and a message appears asking the driver to confirm they have stopped driving and enter their new duty status.
If the driver does not respond to this 1st prompt and the vehicle remains stationary for 5 consecutive minutes, the ELD must prompt the driver again to confirm the driving status or enter the new duty status.
If the driver does not respond to this 2nd prompt within 1-minute, the ELD must automatically switch the duty status to on-duty (not driving).
The time thresholds for purposes of this provision must not be configurable.
