    Marc's Safety Corner Ride-A-Long: Tips How To Reduce The Risk For Truck Drivers While On The Road

    May 16, 2019

    An avid transportation industry expert and supporter, Marc is genuinely interested in learning how ever-growing cities and increasing traffic, new technologies and fleet safety practices and policies are affecting truck drivers today. Having decades of experience in truck driving, serving as a DOT/MTO inspector, as well as heading fleet safety departments, Marc has faced these changes first hand throughout his career.

    Recently, Marc joined one of the most tenured drivers at APPS Transport (one of the leading Toronto-based transportation companies) for a ride along. Bob Zabek has been with APPS for 20+ years and is not planning to retire any time soon. He has seen the industry go through drastic changes in terms of stricter rules, digitization and increasing traffic.

    Marc and Bob spent a day together exchanging industry knowledge, insights and opinions on ‘A Day in the Life of a Trucker’ to Kingston, Ontario and back. They discussed how increasing traffic on the highways and aggressive driving habits from smaller vehicles are putting additional strain on truck drivers to stay safe while on the road.

    Have you ever noticed how many light duty trucks are driving on highways with unsecured ladders and other equipment in their pick-ups? In the business of long-hauling goods and cargo, Bob finds himself under a lot of scrutiny and regulations from the authorities to properly secure his loads. Do the same rules apply to non-commercial drivers?

    In our first episode of Marc's Ride-A-Long Series, Bob shares how he had to change his driving performance to the ever-changing regulations, to using the ELD to log his hours, to how other drivers on the roads are creating dangerous situations for truck drivers and more. Watch it below!

    May 15, 2019

    On-duty time means the period that begins when a driver begins work or is required by the motor carrier to be available to work. The main exception is where a driver is waiting to be assigned to work. On-duty time will also end when the driver stops work, or is relieved of responsibility by the motor carrier.

    Are drivers required to log ALL on/off duty switches?

    April 06, 2019

    Dear Marc,

    After reading the blog "Are drivers required to show when they stop for fuel on their BigRoad driver logs?"  I am wondering about flagging every on/off duty switch. If the driver is loading, unloading or resting do we need to mark that in the notes section? Do we need to note 30 minute breaks or can we just note that we were off duty 30 minutes?

    Question submitted from one of our readers, Kevin B. Thanks Kevin!
