Zonar Update

On September 15, 2019 Zonar will updating our ELD devices to comply with FMSCA electronic logging device (ELD) rule, phase 3. We will roll out the new user interface in the afternoon of September 15, 2019. Once we make the switch, your past 8 days of logs will not be carried over. You will have access to your old logs on the Zonar tablet if you go into the old user interface or we can export and email you your past 8 days of logs. If you have email on your phone you can just keep them there in case you need it for an inspection. You can also print them out and carry a paper copy with you. If none of those options work for you we can also email them to an inspector if need be. Once you have 8 days built up in the new user interface you will no longer need to carry your previous 8 days, as that information will be stored in Zonar just like before.

Once the switch is made and if you are one of the first drivers to login in Zonar for each unit, there will be around a 10-15 install time for the tablet. So please login as soon as you get to the truck and start the install while you do your pre-trip inspection.

Mandatory ELD Training

Please go through this new ELD training video. We can email you the link if it is easier. Please contact the office if you need it emailed.

Here is the link for the training module: https://360.articulate.com/review/content/0dce490d-a659-4b95-b482-9d6e9b0c5736/review

You can do this training on a computer, smart phone or tablet. Once you have completed the training print out or take a picture of the result page and submit that with a blue-sheet in order to be compensated for your time.  You must complete the training and show proof no later than September 15th. 2019. Training should not take more than 90 minutes to complete.

Key Differences

The only automatic duty status changes in ELD include the following:

· Automatic Drive: The driver will be immediately put into drive when the vehicle speed exceeds 4.5 mph. There is no minimum distance component as with AOBRD.

· Automatic ON Duty: A 5 minute idle will trigger a 60 second countdown. After the countdown (totaling 6 minutes from motion stop) the driver will be automatically placed in ON Duty.

There are no other automated duty status changes allowed on an ELD. A driver must certify all edits made to their logs.

Before certifying logs, a driver can add duty status events that were not previously recorded. They cannot add a special duty status like Personal Conveyance, only Off Duty, Sleeper Berth, and On Duty.

When editing logs, the driver can only edit Off Duty, Sleeper Berth, and On Duty. Dispatch will no longer have the capability to edit log, we can only suggest edits, it will be up to you to edit when necessary. The driver will have to add a note when making the edit. The notes should be enough information anyone reading can understand the circumstance.

At the pump after you put in your PIN when it asks for your mileage we need you to instead put in your TRACTOR number

No mileage. Just tractor number. 

Most places also have a third prompt labeled MISC. Please fill in your Trip #.

Mileage = Tractor #

MISC = Trip #

We recently received everything we need to start installing E-logs into our trucks. We are shooting to have them all installed and have everyone trained not later than the end of October. If you have not been trained and you see one in the truck you are assigned you do not need to worry them. If you have been trained then please start using them. 

Here are a couple links with material on the Zonar E-log system. Please take a look around at the videos and training material. Further instructions will follow as we get them installed. Please call Ivan if you have any questions. Thanks.

Attention Drivers - - Know the Facts…Be Prepared

posted Sep 9, 2011, 9:20 AM by Ivan Cronick

Did You Know?

  • The data kept by a State (i.e. tickets, citations, written warnings, convictions) and the data that is kept in the SMS (i.e. violations from roadside inspection and crash reports) are separate.
  • Carriers do not inherit any of a newly hired driver’s past violations. Only those inspections that a driver receives while driving under a carrier’s authority can be applied to a carrier’s Safety Measurement System (SMS) record.
  • CSA does not give FMCSA the authority to remove drivers from their jobs and cannot be used to rate drivers or to revoke a commercial driver’s license (CDL).

These are just a few of several facts explained in the CSA Just the Facts flyer. Just the Facts sets the records straight on the most common myths about the CSA program.

FMCSA’s Proposed Hours of Service Changes

posted Jan 28, 2011, 2:13 PM by Ivan Cronick

The American Trucking Association (ATA) is launching an aggressive campaign in response to the Obama Administration's attempt to replace proven and safe hours of service with a complex, restrictive set of unproven rules that would reduce industry productivity and cause adverse safety consequences. As part of the campaign, ATA is urging trucking companies to engage their drivers, educate them on the proposed changes, and strongly encourage them to submit their written objections to FMCSA as soon as possible but no later than February 28, 2011.

 

To help carriers and drivers with this task, ATA has included the following on the SafeDriverHours.com website:

  1. A summary of the proposed HOS changes to help educate drivers, found by clicking here.
     
  2. An easy to read chart comparing the proposed changes to the current HOS rules to help educate drivers, found here.  
     
  3. Talking points for drivers, a template to help drivers draft their thoughts, and easy instructions for drivers on how to send their comments to FMCSA, found by clicking here.

OTA will also be addressing these changes in upcoming training and informational sessions. Please see more information in the OTA events section.
