Trucking Industry Waiting for FMCSA’s ELD Enforcement Plan
With just five months to a Dec. 18 federal mandate that requires truckers to adopt electronic logging devices to track how much time they spend driving their vehicles, drivers and others are starting to ask how the program will be enforced.
The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance, which is expected to provide training for roadside inspectors, said it has not received instructions from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration on how to enforce the regulation.
“It is likely that the information will be given to the states, who will then be responsible for training their inspectors. But the details have not been finalized at this point,” said Adrienne Gildea, deputy executive director for CVSA.
