Mailbag: ELD mandate upheld in 7th circuit court, readers react

Following Halloween news that the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals rejected OOIDA's arguments against the FMCSA's electronic logging device mandate, readers weighed in on their views relative to the court decision, ELDs in practice broadly, and the hours of service, which several noted were the bedrock problem.

5. Mailbag: ELD mandate, 14-hour reform should be top priorities for next FMCSA administrator

Mailbag: ELD mandate, 14-hour reform should be top priorities for next FMCSA administrator

It’s been quite a while since the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration had an administrator appointed to head it up, but this week, the news was that Ray Martinez had been tapped for the role. Career bureaucrat Martinez, currently serving at the head of New Jersey's Motor Vehicle Commission, should focus, say Overdrive readers, on a bevy of hours of service-related issues, in addition to other concerns voiced in this mailbag edition of the Overdrive Radio podcast, compiled from responses prompted via OverdriveOnline.com. What's your view on where FMCSA's eventual new administrator should put his focus?

10. Mailbag: Answering ELD Mandate questions, and more trucking views

Mailbag: Answering ELD Mandate questions, and more trucking views

In this Overdrive Radio podcast edition, Senior Editor Todd Dills answers a few ELD-mandate-related question and rounds up commentary coming in on the podcast line: 530-408-6423. Commentary has reflected fairly strong opposition to the mandate by and large, with as much as 85 percent of readers -- in a poll still ongoing at OverdriveOnline.com -- noting they’d do what they could to avoid running with an electronic log of any kind. Half said they’d rather retire or look for another line of work if they couldn’t avoid it with the short-haul exception under the hours of service rules or a pre-2000 truck. Such trucks are notably exempt from the requirement. Find Overdrive's complete coverage of the mandate via this link: http://overdriveonline.com/tag/electronic-logs

'Benefit of the doubt' to the driver on the ELD mandate in inspections

After an introduction by trucker/singer-songwriter Michael Lochmiller, listen in on Overdrive Senior Editor Todd Dills' discussion of roadside enforcement of the ELD mandate set to go into effect in December -- with Sergeant Dana Moore of the Texas DPS, who urged officers to 'punt' to administrative review in questionable situations and get the driver on his way. Todd Amen of ATBS, further, delivers news about economic conditions broadly for trucking, a bit of good news in recent months as load-to-truck ratios on the spot market have spiked.

20. 'Bringing the cultural diversity of trucking together': Scott Reed, Mike Landis on the ELD protests

'Bringing the cultural diversity of trucking together': Scott Reed, Mike Landis on the ELD protests

Among perhaps the biggest ripple effects from the ELD mandate protests could be, some truckers believe, a new appreciation for the cultural diversity within the owner-operator community. That's something that both Scott Reed, part organizer among the different groups that came together in D.C., and owner-operator Mike Landis, who participated, certainly agree on. In this Overdrive Radio podcast, you'll hear Reed's reflection on outcomes and next steps, and Landis offers his narration of what it was like to have been a part of.
