If you usually come back to your work-reporting location and go home at the end of your workday, you might be able to use the 16-hour short-haul exception. This exception allows you to extend the 14-consecutive-hour driving window to 16 hours once every 7 consecutive days. In order to use this exception, you must do the following:
• You must return to your work reporting location that day, as well as for your last 5 duty tours. A duty tour is the period of time from when you come to work to when you leave work. It is your “workday,” the time between your off-duty periods of at least 10 consecutive hours.
• You must be released from duty within 16 hours after coming on duty.
• You must only use this exception once every 7 consecutive days (unless you took 34 consecutive hours off to restart a 7/8-day period).
You may not use this exception if you qualify for the “Non-CDL Short Haul Exception”
How to evoke the 16-Hour Exception on your Maven ELD:
The 16-hour exception will extend the time on your Shift timer (by default 14h) by two hours. If a shift has already started, 2 hours will be added to your current remaining time. Go to the Add HOS Event page (also called Duty status page) at the top right corner of the screen in the Maven App. Once you are on the HOS Event page, tap the option at the bottom that says "Daily Log Exceptions".
Once selected, there will be two exception options available- 16 Hour Exception and Adverse Driving. Tap on the 16 Hour bubble. It also gives the driver the option to enter a note in with their activation of the 16 Hours Exception. Lastly, just as with any other manual status change, you will want to tap Save in the top right corner of the screen.
