As part of its Electronic Logging Device Implementation National Tour, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration will host an Electronic Logging Device implementation, two-day event at the Davis Travel Center in Stony Creek, Va.

The FMCSA event, Oct. 11-12, will provide ELD transition information to drivers and carriers in attendance.

FMCSA subject matter experts will be available from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. on both days to discuss ELDs and answer questions. A driver-focused ELD presentation will also take place from 12:30 - 1:30 p.m. each day.

As required by federal law, all motor carriers subject to the ELD Rule must convert from paper logs or logging software to a registered ELD if they do not have an Automatic On-Board Recording Device by Dec. 18 of this year.

During the months of October and November, FMCSA will conduct nationwide training with its state partners to ensure that carriers are knowledgeable of compliance and enforcement requirements.   

Experts representing other FMCSA programs including hours-of-service, commercial driver licenses, and medical programs, among others, will answer questions from drivers on a variety of CMV-related issues.

For those who are unable to visit the travel center, FMCSA will livestream the Oct. 11 presentation on its website beginning at 12:30 p.m.

The FMCSA event will coincide with the Davis Travel Center’s annual “Driver Appreciation Days” event.
