As part of its Electronic Logging Device Implementation National Tour, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration will host an Electronic Logging Device implementation two-day event at the Davis Travel Center off of Interstate 95 in Stony Creek, Virginia.
The FMCSA event will provide ELD transition information to CMV drivers in attendance and coincides with the travel centre’s annual “Driver Appreciation Days” event on Thursday, October 11, and Friday, October 12, 2017.
FMCSA subject matter experts will be available from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. EDT on both days to discuss ELDs and answer questions. A driver-focused ELD presentation also will take place from 12:30-1:30 p.m. EDT each day. For those who are unable to visit the travel center, a live webcast of the October 11 presentation will be broadcast on the FMCSA website at here beginning at 12:30 p.m. EDT.
As required by federal law, all motor carriers subject to the ELD Rule must convert from paper logs or logging software to a registered ELD if they do not have an Automatic On-Board Recording Device by December 18, 2017. During the months of October and November 2017, FMCSA will conduct nationwide training with its state partners to ensure that they are knowledgeable of compliance and enforcement requirements.
FMCSA is eager to engage directly with drivers onsite at this event, as well as online through the webcast, to assist in the CMV industry-wide preparation for the transition to ELDs. Also on hand, experts representing other FMCSA programs, including Hours-of-Service, Commercial Driver Licenses, Medical Programs, and others, will answer questions from drivers on a variety of CMV-related issues.
