Update: ELD Mandate Delayed; New Publication Date Set for Oct. 30

In the latest turn of events, the Department of Transportation released a report this week noting that the Final Rule to require truck operators to use ELDs has been delayed one month. The rule is now expected to be released on Oct. 26 and then published Oct. 30. As the rule is sitting with the White House Office of Management and Budget as part of the required approval process, we anticipate that this delay is related to the need to carefully review the rule given the complexity and implications of the mandate. The FMCSA’s corresponding prohibition of driver coercion rule, which is related to the mandate, is expected to follow the same schedule.

Hours of Service Violations – and Fines – Are Racking Up

Hours of Service violations, and the FMCSA fines associated with those violations, are among the biggest issues facing the transportation industry today. In a time when operational costs are expensive enough, the additional burden of Hours of Service fines can destroy any remaining profits fleets may have. In an effort to show how much of an impact this has on the trucking industry, Omnitracs has launched a clock showing the dollar amount of HOS violations in real time. This clock, which is hosted on the Electronic Logging Device educational site, eldfacts.com, displays a running view of the total dollar amount of HOS violation penalties collected.
