Nor does it cover detention time, breakdowns, or enforcement inspections that could be anticipated in the industry. Question: Does a driver need to annotate their log when declaring an adverse driving exception? • Guidance: YES. This could potentially be an audit point for a motor carrier involved in an accident and/or roadside inspection.
