2015 is a defining year for technology and federal regulations. For many years, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has vacillated on when, where, and who should comply with compliance standards for electronic logging devices (ELDs).

If the proposed rule is passed : all interstate commercial truck and bus companies are required to have electronic logging devices in their vehicles to govern the number of hours their drivers work, also known as hours of service (HOS).
