Electronic Logging Device (ELD)
No 'Soft Enforcement'

Electronic Logging Device

Commercial vehicle inspectors will not offer a “soft enforcement” grace period for truckers who have not migrated to electronic logging devices (ELD) by Dec. 17, the date that full enforcement of the federal ELD rule takes effect.

Unless a motor carrier operates under a specific exemption, all motor carriers without an ELD on-board will face an out-of-service violation after the Dec. 16 deadline.

There are no excuses for not having an ELD for motor carriers who are required to comply with this regulation, nor will there be any warnings or exceptions.

According to the North American Standard Out-of-Service Criteria, property-carrying drivers who do not have an ELD by the deadline will be considered without a record of duty status in their possession. Those violators will be declared out of service for 10 hours.

FMCSA implemented the ELD rule to make it easier and faster to accurately track, manage, and share record of duty status information, and to help improve road safety and reduce the number of crashes. An ELD automatically records a driver’s driving time and other hours-of-service data. Hours-of-service rules and regulations were developed to minimize driver fatigue and improve safety.

Electronic Logging Devices (ELD) and your Rental Trucks

Truckers driving short-term rental trucks for eight days or fewer at a time will not be required to keep logs with an electronic logging device while in the rental due to an exemption granted to the Truck Renting and Leasing Association (TRALA).

Under the terms of the exemption, drivers will still be subject to the hours-of-service rules and must maintain paper logs for the current and prior seven days, if required.

Drivers must also keep a copy of the rental agreement in the truck to show law enforcement, along with a copy of the exemption notice, while operating under the exemption.

Operating under the exemption for longer than eight days will be considered a violation of the exemption and a failure to use an ELD, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
