ELD compliance rates dropped one point this week to 91% with a 3-week moving average up one point to 88%, all this just one week shy of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s April 1 ELD enforcement deadline, according to a survey conducted by CarrierLists, Tulsa, Okla. This means that any driver stopped without an ELD after April 1 will be unable to operate for 10 hours.
“From our recent polling results along with other ELD compliance surveys we’ve seen, it looks like roughly 10% of smaller fleets are still not compliant,” says Kevin Hill, president of CarrierLists, Tulsa, Okla.
DAT Solutions, Philadelphia, also published an ELD compliance survey showing 91% of, mainly owner operators, are now compliant.
“It will be interesting to see if full enforcement creates chaos in capacity over the next few weeks,” adds Hill. “Or, if it is only one more blip on the radar.”
