ELD Violation Grace Period Added
Federal Authorities have announced a grace period for any ELD related violation, occurring during a CSA. To help alleviate the transition process, any violations accrued after the December 18 ELD deadline, will be a “no points citation”. It will have no affect on the Safety Measurement System in place, up until April 1st. While the FMCSA announced this phasing in of the new way, it is up to local jurisdictions to decide whether they will issue citations, and at what point. The FMCSA has altered their approach to this situation, based off of feedback from many law enforcement, and commercial agencies not quite able to implement the new system.
