Trucking Company Owner Admits to Falsifying Driver Records
PROVIDENCE – The owner of a now defunct Woonsocket commercial trucking company admitted to a federal court judge in Providence that he altered thousands of electronic entries in service logbooks for approximately 20 drivers in order to conceal the actual drive time and “on-duty” time of drivers.
U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) regulations, enforced by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), a division of the USDOT, require accurate record keeping and operational requirements, including records related to drivers’ actual hours of service.
Damir Sisic, 29, of Woonsocket, owner of the now defunct Sisic Transport Service LLC (STS), admitted that he routinely altered data collected by onboard electronic data gathering devices installed in his trucks that reflected the actual number of hours his drivers operated the vehicles.
