After a longstanding dispute between the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association’s (OOIDA) and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), the Supreme Court denied OOIDA’s petition to overturn FMCSA’s Electronic Logging Device (ELD) mandate and upheld the ruling on June 12. 

The Supreme Court’s decision is the end of the road for further challenges, and with six months to go until FMCSA’s first compliance deadline on Dec. 18, the industry is moving full steam ahead. At least it is supposed to be... however, many fleets are still not convinced that ELDs will benefit their operations as rumors and misconceptions abound. We’ve decided to set the record straight and create a guide that addresses the top 5 most common misconceptions: 
1.    The ELD rule does not apply to me. 
2.    ELDs invade driver privacy. 
3.    ELDs are a distraction on the road.  
4.    ELDs will increase my operational costs.
5.    I have until December 2017 to implement.
