ELD Violations Won’t Impact CSA Scores During Transition
Federal officials have announced a welcome change to the forthcoming mandate that will require commercial trucks to install Electronic Logging Devices (ELD’s). The announcement states that if drivers are cited for non-compliance with the ELD rule during the transition period (December 18th- April 1st), the citation will be a “no points cite.” The result is that the violation will not affect the Safety Measurement System that relays data to the CSA scoring system. However, the fines attached to the non-compliance violations will still need to be paid.
Officials have realized that the considerable task of implementing and enforcing this change is not progressing as quickly as projected, so this update should help to alleviate some of the stress.
