Electronic On-Board Recorders
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is proposing to require that electronic on board recorders (EOBRs) be used instead of paper logs for recording commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers’ hours of service (HOS). All long haul operations and some short haul operations would be affected. Carriers would have 3 years to comply. Also, proposed new standards would make clearer what supporting documents carriers must keep to back up drivers’ logs. EOBR-users would get a break on supporting documents.
