I recently wrote a post giving an update on the current EOBR mandate and I’ve expanded on this topic in my new whitepaper, “Electronic Driver Logs and Hours of Service Compliance.” Below you will find the executive summary as well as the link to download the full white paper.
As you may know, Congress recently passed the federal highway bill, Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act ("MAP-21”), that included a mandate for EOBRs. On August 15, I had the pleasure of hosting a live webinar to share information on the bill's timeline, scope, implementation, and impact and benefits to carriers and drivers, as well as the future of EOBRs. I invite you to view the recording of the webinar to learn more about the details of the mandate and to get your questions answered.

During Vision 2012, we sat down with Annette Sandberg, principal and CEO for TransSafe Consulting and the former FMCSA administrator, to get an update on what’s on the regulatory horizon and how the 2012 elections will affect the regulatory landscape for the transportation and logistics industry.

During Vision 2012, we sat down with Annette Sandberg, former FMCSA administrator and CEO & principal of TranSafe Consulting (double-check titles) to get her perspective on the EOBR mandate. Take a look at the video to hear what she told us about:

There are, however, some naysayers and skeptics that based on misperceptions have argued against the use of EOBRs. The actual experience of the industry, though, suggests that these are just “EOBR myths” and looking at EOBR related facts and industry’s experience (outlined below) clearly demonstrate the usefulness of these systems.
