NEW ELECTRONIC LOG BOOK REQUIREMENT FOR RECORDING DRIVER HOURS OF SERVICE
Click here for the updated ELD Compliance Bulletin to use in place of the original version dated 11/14. I made a technical correction to the “Interstate vs Intrastate” section. The ELD rule will very likely still apply to all intrastate drivers who do not qualify for the short haul exemption – but for a different reason than initially stated in the 11/14 compliance bulletin. States are not required to automatically adopt FMCSA hours of service requirements and thus the ELD requirements - but virtually all states do by choice. There may be a few states that adopt the ELD requirement with some variances, such as adopting a different compliance date. But again, most states are following the FMCSA’s lead on ELD. Mississippi automatically adopted the these requirements without variance.
