The ELD mandate affects millions of commercial drivers. If you are currently required to complete a RODS or HOS logbook, then it’s likely the change to ELDs will affect you – however there are exceptions.
Short-haul drivers – The short-haul exemption is for drivers who use the 100 air-mile radius exception or 150 air-mile radius.
Driveaway-towaway operations – If the commercial motor vehicle being driven is part of a shipment (the truck is the product being delivered) an ELD is not required.
Pre-2000 vehicles – Vehicle models dated 1999 (based on the VIN) or earlier are exempt from the ELD mandate.
