FMCSA Posts TRALA ELD Petition in Federal Register
Today, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) posted the Truck Renting and Leasing Association's (TRALA) petition for an exemption from the Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Rule in the Federal Register. In its petition, TRALA is requesting an exemption for short-term rentals, which are rented for 30 days or less. The exemption would last until December 31, 2018. Currently, TRALA members are operating under a 90-day waiver, which allows trucks rented for 30 days or less to continue to use paper logs to record their hours-of-service until April 19, 2018.
