We have seen a sharp increase in HOS violations during recent roadside inspections.  In anticipation of the April 1 out of service deadline for ELD compliance, we have listed a reminder below.

 

What electronic logging device (ELD) user documentation must be onboard a driver’s commercial motor vehicle?

Beginning on December 18, 2017, a driver using an ELD must have an ELD information packet onboard the commercial motor vehicle (CMV) containing the following items:

  1. A user’s manual for the driver describing how to operate the ELD;

 

  1. An instruction sheet describing the data transfer mechanisms supported by the ELD and step-by-step instructions to produce and transfer the driver’s hours-of-service records to an authorized safety official;

 

  1. An instruction sheet for the driver describing ELD malfunction reporting requirements and recordkeeping procedures during ELD malfunctions; and

 

 

  1. A supply of blank driver’s records of duty status (RODS) graph-grids sufficient to record the driver’s duty status and other related information for a minimum of 8 days.
