New CVSA bulletin outlines procedures for checking ELDs at roadside
(January 31, 2018)
- The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance, the partnership of law enforcement and truck- and bus-industry representatives across North America, has added an inspection bulletin outlining officer and driver responsibilities during inspections of hours of service when the driver is using an electronic logging device. The document outlines expected inspection procedures for ELD-involved hours inspections, likewise exemptions to the ELD mandate rule. Intended for use primarily by inspectors, it also outlines driver responsibilities when it comes to the process of transferring data from an ELD to roadside software for analysis, depending on the method utilized within the ELD and at the roadside.
