ELD Mandate Update

Earlier this month, the FMCSA filed its official response to OOIDA's legal challenge against the upcoming ELD Mandate. The FMCSA argued that rule is constitutional, and that according to its own analysis, ELDs would result in 1,844 fewer crashes, 26 lives saved, and 562 injuries avoided annually.

In response to OOIDA's claims that the rule will violate driver privacy, the FMCSA said that the mandate will require ELDs have secure access to data and use encryption methods while transferring data, and that personal data and records would be protected in legal proceedings, including when drivers file complaints against carriers.

OOIDA's response to the FMCSA is likely to be published around the end of July.
