Canada Announces ELD Mandate Draft, Gives 60 Days for Public Comment

This week, the first draft of the long-awaited Canadian ELD Mandate was published. This news came at the same time as the deadline carriers had to comply with the U.S. version of the ELD Mandate. Canadian Minister of Transport Marc Garneau met with transportation leaders in Ontario this week to present the rule, which will be finalized in Canada Gazette II. Like the U.S. version, the Canadian ELD Mandate won’t change the Hours of Service regulations, just how drive time is recorded and reported. The rule will require replacing paper logs with a regulation-compliant device that connects directly to the...

Expect ELD Mandate Violation Fines Starting December 19, 2017

With so much recent anti-ELD Mandate activity, including nationwide protests, it’s easy to forget the facts: the ELD Mandate will go into effect on December 18, 2017, and the very next day enforcement has the ability to start inspection violations for missing or incomplete logs. It is true that ELD violations won’t impact CSA scores until April of next year, however non-compliant trucks that are pulled over by enforcement are still subject to fines. At this time, we do not know how prominent the inspection violations will be in early days after the mandate or how much those fines are....

What to Consider in a Carrier ELD Mandate Policy

With the ELD Mandate rapidly approaching, it is a good idea for carriers to look at policies and procedures — whether establishing new ones when converting from paper or revisiting existing ones when using automatic onboard recording devices (AOBRDs). Every company is different and should consult legal counsel when working on these policies, however, there are some items that carriers can consider when initiating these conversations based on carrier best practices and the content of the ELD Mandate. You may already have an Hours of Service policy that indicates drivers are to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR 395.3...

ELD Mandate Update: Short Term Rental Exemption

Previously, we reported that the Truck Renting and Leasing Association (TRALA) filed for an exemption with the FMCSA for short-term rental vehicles from requiring ELDs for short-term breakdowns for up to 30 days. The FMCSA published in the Federal Registry, as of October 10, 2017, that an exemption will be granted for short-term trucks. Instead of covering trucks rented for 30 days, as petitioned by TRLA, the FMCSA will grant the exemption for trucks rented eight days or fewer. Here are the key things to know: This exemption covers a rental period of eight days or fewer, whether or not...

FMCSA Offers ELD Mandate Learning Events in October

The ELD Mandate compliance date is rapidly approaching and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is offering several opportunities for carriers to ask questions and get clarification on the rule this month. Don’t miss the chance to hear straight from FMCSA on how to prepare. Wednesday, October 11, 2017, and Thursday, October 12, 2017 FMCSA will be holding an event at the Davis Travel Center in Stony Creek, Virginia as part of their ELD Implementation National Tour. Representatives from FMCSA will be at the travel center to answer questions about ELD implementation and supply resources to help carriers get...
