Extension of Time to File Personal Tax Returns

We’re in April, where full enforcement of the electronic logging mandate begins, the devices are still causing a high level of confusion. In one case, a driving team was unable to log into their device, and instead were still using paper logs. As per FMCSA’s claim, ELDs will automatically record driving time, allowing drivers to spend less time preparing logs and more time doing what they do best: driving. The intended result is a decrease in the frequency of fatigued driving by commercial truck drivers, reducing crashes, injuries, and fatalities involving large trucks and buses on our highways. Agriculture and Livestock haulers were granted some extension for ELD compliance till June.

By holding drivers and their companies accountable to critical HOS regulations, ELDs help create a safer work environment, ensuring that drivers take the breaks they need.
