Make sure you know how to use your ELD device.
If a driver or motor carrier fails to use an ELD when one is required, the driver and motor carrier will be in in violation of the ELD rule and will be cited in accordance with
49 CFR 395.8(a)(1) and the driver will be placed out-of-service in accordance with the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance OOS criteria. The ELD rule, which requires the adoption of electronic logging devices, is the latest step to address fatigued driving among drivers of large trucks and buses. ELDs will make it easier to enforce existing HOS regulations, which remain unchanged.
The full compliance deadline was December 16, 2019.
