Title Department of Transportation Proposes Use of Electronic Logbooks to Improve Efficiency, Safety in Commercial Bus and Truck Industries
Date Posted 4/1/2014
Description The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has proposed a rule requiring interstate truck and bus companies to use Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) in their vehicles to record drivers' service to improve safety by increasing compliance with hours-of-service regulations. This proposed rule supersedes a prior 2011 Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, and includes provisions to respect driver privacy, protect drivers from harassment, and increase efficiency for inspectors.
