Comment deadline today on ELD exemption request


As is often said during wedding ceremonies, “Speak now or forever hold your piece.”

That also applies to the request for public comments on the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association’s request for an exemption from the electronic logging device mandate for small trucking businesses.

The comment period closes today — Thursday, Feb. 1, — at 11:59 p.m. Eastern time.

Those who wish to comment before then can do so here.

The exemption, if granted, would apply to businesses with up to $27.5 million a year in revenue which have no at-fault crashes on their record and have a “Satisfactory” or “Conditional” safety rating.
