Post-ELD mandate crash data a knock on hours regs, too
There’s no doubt the conclusions made by a recent research report on crash statistics since the ELD mandate could prompt a head nod or two from owner-operators and, likely, will inflame already existing animus against the forced adoption of electronic logging devices by Congress and the U.S. DOT.
The study is one of the first analyses the industry has had when it comes to crash statistics since the mandate took effect. In short, it concluded that, according to raw crash data, there’s been no obvious drop in truck-involved crashes (based simply on a weekly average count) since enforcement of the mandate began in earnest last April.
