I wonder what the big catch is on the eld is? Time will tell besides what's obvious, someone will benefit from reinforcing it.

GPS makes it more difficult. I thought GPS was not standard ? Do they all have it ?

They need to have some sort of locating service. It does not make GPS mandatory. They can probably use cell service triangulation. Phones without GPS do this.

Trust me. I'm not advocating for it. I was just curious about how it worked.

To your specific question when I was in the cath lab we had to wear all kinds of monitors and had all kinds of limits that didn't make any sense. These days there are cameras and electronic logs in the majority of OR, Caths, and Hybrids. If you think the government is strict you should try a hospital administrator. hahaha.

You handled that well. I noticed my ER nurses would scan their badge and then my wrist band during my visit. I couldn't imagine the oversight involved.

We already know the catch. Your mega fleets are the ones benefiting.
This is pushing the small businesses and owner operators out.

Your mega fleets have pennies on the dollar drivers, trailers galore that can be left at shippers and receivers, etc. itís very clear who this is for and why itís being pushed.

People think it is a coincidence the glider program is falling apart and ELDs are coming in at the same time and it is allllll for the benefit of the people and drivers? Dang. I thought we were better than this.
