NEW JERSEY TRUCK ACCIDENT LAWYERS DISCUSS ELECTRONIC LOGGING DEVICES FOR COMMERCIAL VEHICLES

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has announced that it will publish its new rule regarding electronic logging devices (ELD) by September 30, 2015.  The new rule will require commercial truck drivers to use electronic logging devices to record their hours behind the wheel.

The FMCSA mandate will ensure that commercial vehicle drivers comply with hours-of-service regulations.  ELDs are expected to prevent about 1,400 commercial truck accidents each year by preventing commercial truck drivers from driving for an excessive length of time.  Driver fatigue greatly increases the likelihood that a commercial truck driver will cause an accident.
