Got Questions? ELDs and Telematics

Q. I know what we have to do if our ELDs malfunction—but I still have a handful of AOBRDs. How do we handle a malfunction with one of those devices?

A. The procedure for handling an AOBRD malfunction is similar to the way you should handle an ELD malfunction. If an AOBRD malfunction occurs, drivers should do the following: • Note the AOBRD malfunction • Reconstruct the record of duty status (RODS) for the current 24-hour period and the previous seven consecutive days, and record them on a graph-grid paper or electronic logs that are in compliance with 49 CFR 395.8, unless the driver already has the records or retrieves them from the AOBRD • Continue to prepare paper or electronic graph-grid RODs per 49 CFR 395.8 As with an ELD malfunction, the driver should notify the fleet about the malfunction — in writing or electronically — within 24 hours. Paper or electronic grid-graph recording of hours of service should not continue for more than eight days after the malfunction is discovered.
