FAQ017: Are Canada/Mexico domiciled CMV drivers required to have record of duty status (RODS) for the current 24-hour period and the previous 7 consecutive days when crossing into the United States?

Answer: Yes, if the U.S. destination is beyond 100 air-mile radius of a Canada/Mexico domiciled motor carrier’s driver’s normal work reporting location, the driver must have their current 24-hour period and the previous 7 consecutive days RODS for operations while in Canada or Mexico.

However, if the U.S. destination is within a 100 air-mile radius of a Canada/Mexico domiciled motor carrier’s driver’s normal work reporting location and the driver returns to that location and is released from work within 12 hours, then the driver is not required to keep a paper log or use an AOBRD/ELD during the U.S. portion of the trip.
