The graphic above shows how police in each state are handling enforcement of the electronic logging device mandate until April 1. Though the U.S. DOT required nearly all truckers who keep records of duty status to switch to an ELD by Dec. 18, there’s a soft enforcement period until April 1, the date established by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance for when out-of-service orders for non-compliance will begin being issued. Some states, as the graphic shows, have told enforcers outright to not issue citations or tickets for non-compliance until April 1, while others have left the decision up to the officers themselves.
NOTE: States shown in gray have not responded as to how they are handling ELD enforcement.
