Date Nears for Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Compliance

In just six short weeks, the date goes into effect for the requirement to install and use Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) for compliance with Hours of Service (HOS) regulations. On December 18, 2017 eligible commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers will need to install and use ELDs for compliance with HOS regulations; however, specific only to the ready mixed concrete industry, there is a workable solution for not being required to install and use ELDs. Specifically, if a mixer driver does not work more than 14 hours, more than eight days in any 30-day period, ELDs are not needed.
