Electronic Logging Devices (ELD)– The deadline is coming…

Trucking Company Mandate as of December 18th, 2017 Drivers who are now required to use paper logs – records of duty status (RODS) -because they operate commercial motor vehicles in interstate commerce motor vehicles weighing more than 10,000 pounds, or who carry haz-mat—need to use Electronic Logging Devices (ELD) in their vehicles, unless they meet one of the exemptions.

Manual overrides are allowed for special circumstances. The Enforcement Cases… The ELD Rule was adopted to increase the use of AOBRDs to promote safety and reduce the paperwork burden for motor carriers and drivers as well as transportation law enforcement officers. As with every lock, where there’s a pick waiting […]
