That is why, in 2019, we took new action to prevent commercial driver fatigue and improve road safety by mandating electronic logging devices. These devices track drivers' working hours to ensure all federally regulated motor carriers and their drivers operate safely. Consultations in the lead-up to the mandate generated broad support, and identified June 12, 2021, as a feasible date for the installation of electronic logging devices." Read more. (Mar. 2, 2021)
