2018 ELD Mandates Fully Enforceable as of April 1
As of April 1, the ELD Mandates passed effective in 2018 are fully enforceable, ending a three-month grace period where drivers were reprimanded with relatively minor penalties for non-compliance. Non-compliance after April 1 will now mean out-of-service violations handed down to drivers.
Fleets that had ELD technology already on-board by December 2017 were given until December 2019 to fully comply with the new published specifications(1).
Although there has been significant pushback on ELD technology, lawmakers continue to say that the ELD’s are simply electronically tracking laws that have been effect, but difficult to enforce since 2005.
