The hefty price of non-compliance

16 Aug 2016

If it's been said once, it's been said a thousand times over: don't wait until the last minute to become ELD Mandate compliant. The earlier these electronic logging devices are installed, the better – especially as the process of doing so and training the appropriate employees will likely take longer than expected.

If that doesn't motivate for-hire and private motor carriers to get started on researching and complying with the ELD Mandate by the Final Rule deadline of December 2019, then maybe this will: non-compliant carriers will face penalties that include hefty fines.

However, the FMCSA is still very vague on the exact details of what the penalties will be and whether the punishments will go beyond just fines.

The jury's still out but speculation is rife, with a few industry professionals hinting at the temporary shutdown of non-compliant operators or something even more severe.

Watch this space as the finer points of non-compliance are released.
