Happy ELD day!

It's like Christmas but a week early! Here's what happens if you don't have one:

- No 10 hour OOS until April 1
- Fines are at the discretion of the officer and probably vary state to state
- You WILL get a violation
- The violation carries a 0 severity weight so it will not affect scores
- However the FMCSA will keep track of these special violations and certainly will visit carriers that seem to have issues
- Also if you read the inspection report the carrier is supposed to sign it and return it within 15 days. The signature certifies the defect has been addressed. I wonder what will happen if it hasn't?

“After Dec. 18, 2017, if you don’t have an AOBRD or ELD the violation will be cited, and a driver could be fined, but they won’t be put out of service. Companies that continually violate the rule could be subject to federal investigation as well,” says FMCSA spokesperson Duane DeBruyne.
