DOT Seeks Comments on On-Board Recorders Documenting Compliance with Hours of Service Rules

September 28, 2004

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requests comments on potential amendments to its regulations concerning the use of on-board recording devices to document compliance with the federal hours-of-service rules, according to the NAFA FleetFocus e-mail newsletter. In a Federal Register notice, the FMCSA said, "Because our current regulations do not reflect the considerable advances in the technology used in current- generation recording devices (also known as electronic on-board recorders, or EOBRs), we seek information concerning issues that should be considered in the development of improved performance specifications for these recording devices." FMCSA invites comments on several issues including, "Should FMCSA propose requiring that motor carriers in general, or only certain types of motor carrier operations, use EOBRs?"
