The role of the US Department of Transportation is to ensure the safety of the public and of the drivers that work on the roads. One way that the US DOT implements driver safety is to require that drivers do not stay out on the roads too long, drive without breaks, and they must carry a required log book. Log books are only used when, in general, a commercial motor vehicle is used as part of a business and is involved in interstate commerce and fits any of these descriptions: Weighs 10,001 pounds or more Has a gross vehicle weight rating or gross combination weight rating of 10,001 pounds or more Is designed or used to transport 16 or more passengers (including the driver) not for compensation Is designed or used to transport 9 or more passengers (including the driver) for compensation Is transporting hazardous materials in a quantity requiring placards Most oxygen providers will fall under this category because they carry 1,001 lbs. of oxygen (thats the tanks and the gas)
