FAQ007:  Does the 100 air-mile radius exception apply to cross-border operations?

Answer:  Yes. 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.
