    Hi all, new member here and was just reading some posts and noticed a lot of you say you keep log books to produce in case a problem arises either in court or with an unhappy customer. What exactly are in these log books and how do they protect you in court if you are sued? Thanx.

    We have a basic log which has account name, time arrived amount of snow, amount of deicer used, and notes. All of that fits on one column, so on a standard 8.5 x 11 sheet you could put 20 or more accounts, usually enough for a full route.

    We include at the top the Driver, date, start time, and make them sign them when they turn them in, so they double as a time sheet.
