Can truckers still use paper logs?
Guidance: A driver should only use paper logs, electronic logging software, or other electronic means to record their hours of service if the ELD malfunction hinders the accurate recording of the driver’s hours of service data (i.e., 10/11, 14/15, 60/70 hours; or 30 minute).
How many miles can you run without ELD?
The driver must work and drive within the limitations of the HOS rules when operating beyond the 150-air mile radius. Time spent working within the 150 air-mile radius does not count toward the driver’s daily and weekly limits. When operating within the 150 air-mile radius the driver should not log into the ELD.
Who is exempt from using electronic logs?
Drivers who use Records of Duty Status (RODS) for 8 days or less in any 30-day period, as are also exempt from using electronic logging devices. If a driver doesn’t frequently go over the 8 days of RODS, they can use an ELD on demand for the times they do.
