Why do I see events from other trucks on my log today?
The FMCSA mandates that events from ALL vehicles that you have logged into over the past 8 days be shown on your log for today.
These events include all malfunction and diagnostic event records that are logged for these trucks, as well as unassigned driving. The relevant FMCSA articles are: 220.127.116.11.2, 18.104.22.168.3, 22.214.171.124.4, 126.96.36.199.5, and 188.8.131.52.7. These articles are listed below.
Here are the items we used to interpret why we are adding Events to a Driver's logs from a previous vehicle:
