The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has scheduled the final version of its rule to mandate electronic logging devices for truck operators. Carriers and drivers will have to comply by Dec. 16, 2017. The rule will require U.S. truck drivers to use electronic logging devices to track and log their records of duty status. FMCSA released a 500-page document detailing the new rule’s stipulations, the changes it made from the proposed version and responses to industry groups and individuals who submitted public comments during the proposed rule’s comment period held last year.
In addition to requiring use of the devices, the mandate spells out the minimum hardware requirement for compliant devices, supporting documentation still required to be kept by carriers and drivers, and plans to prevent carriers from using the devices to interrupt drivers’ off-duty periods and other measures deemed “driver harassment.” Along with the publication of this mandate have come a number of legal actions claiming that this requirement is a violation of constitutional rights.
