I was soooo excited when FedEx came today. Thought my prayers were answered and the ELD gods came and I could finally make some real money.

Isnt it just recording mileage/driving time from ECM ? Our tachos takes reading from protected data from speedsensor and as a backup from ABS sensors. Still there is a way to switch tacho off and keep all other functions working. Ofcourse it will be expensive if you get caught driving like that.

Vehicle speed and total miles off ecm, plus it uses GPS. Any VSS issues or GPS mismatch it's supposed to record a fault. this info gets uploaded to the service provider.

No, there are a bunch of exemptions based on air miles, products hauled, year of truck engine, number of days a log book is needed in a 30 day period etc.

None are involved in interstate commerce.

I may be asking a silly question but doesn't the ELD essentially just record what was supposed to be done legally on paper anyways? The basic laws of driving trucks didn't change did they?

I'm not advocating for it by any means because it sounds like there isn't any room for common sense judgment....just wondering.

Itís literally a tracking collar. The rules didnít change, no. The HOS needs to change but nobody has done it yet.

They have discovered that elds wonít work for some so good here if exemptions and waivers for all kinds of crap. Instead of acknowledging they arenít whatís best, they are giving select people, get out of jail free cards.

If youíve ever used snapshot from Progressive itís same thing. I did find overall I was a safer driver but at times you were penalized for doing things like slamming on your brakes when someone randomly moved into your lane. After awhile I found myself less likely to react as quickly because of being penalized. Lol

Exactly, bring back the split clock and the elogs wouldnít be such a big deal. Had a guy the other day say he got stuck at a shipper for 8hrs and then had to leave after he got loaded because they donít allow sleeping on the lot. So he could have logged it as his 10hrs but as soon as he drove off the lot the elog would have started recording. He was sleeping for almost the full 8 but big brother wouldnít see it that way.

Alan thinks we want to work 48hrs straight and this is why we want to run paper. In reality I like to use common sense that his tracking collar doesnít allow.
