On the Road to Compliance with TripDAWG

December 14, 2020

Many states have already adopted the FMCSA’s ELD mandate and California is set for December 31, 2020. All states will eventually have to embrace the ELD mandate for their intrastate drivers. Even if your state has not yet made an official announcement, preparing for the inevitable is a great plan.

What is an ELD?

An ELD or Electronic Logging Device is a piece of hardware attached to a commercial motor vehicle that records driving hours. Driving hours are regulated by a set of rules known as HOS (Hours of Service) Rules. These rules regulate how long a driver may spend on the road as well as the required rest period.

What are the ELD mandates?

The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) requires interstate motor carriers and truck drivers to use electronic logging devices (ELDs) to keep records on driving time, mileage, and other service hour data. The DOT requires ELD records to be retained for 6 months, the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration (CDTFA) encourages you to keep your ELD records for at least 8 years.
