In my current job, I deal with a lot of regulatory stuff and I ran across something today - a dockett where the state commission has a filing against a Lawn & Landscape company for violations against the Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. The two violations they were cited for are 1. failure for the driver to maintain a complete record of duty and 2. for operating a commercial vehicle without submitting it to prior periodic inspections. SO - my first question - does everyone operatate under a commercial license, even part timers? Second question - What is a complete record of duty? Is that something you obtain from your state? I read our state's complete Motor Carrier Regulations and that seems more geared towards the trucking industry, delivery (like UPS), Agriculture and the transport of hazardous materials. I sent an email to our Commission, but I thought I would check here too. Call me naive, I guess I wasn't prepared to go out and get a commercial license, etc., not even knowing if I'm going to have business this summer yet!!
