Got Questions? ELDs and Telematics

Q. My fleet has been using AOBRDs for years. I know we can move older systems from truck to truck, but we’re expanding our fleet and I’d like to continue using our AOBRD software. Can we install new AOBRDs and still be covered under the grandfather c

A. Yes, per guidance issued in March by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), fleets that fall under the AOBRD grandfather clause can install additional AOBRDs only if it is an ELD-capable device that runs compliant AOBRD software. Even if you fall under the grandfather clause, you will have to transition to using ELDs throughout your fleet by December 16, 2019, and should be already making plans to make the switch now.
