Hours of Service rules can be difficult to traverse, even when a driver is only following a single rule set. This is complicated further when a driver is moving between rule sets.

A lot of the time it is the simple misconceptions that cause the big mistakes. This is particularly true when it comes to Hours of Service.

Part one of the series was all about Passenger vs Property carriers. Watch the recording below and check out the answers to some of the questions we received.

This past year saw a lot of changes in the trucking industry, particularly with the regulations. The ELD Mandate was finally published after being scheduled and rescheduled throughout 2015. Although the use of ELDs is not effective immediately due to the grace periods, it will definitely have a huge impact over the next coming years.
So it’s not a surprise that BigRoad’s Top 5 Blog Posts are almost all related to the ELD Mandate. These posts were the most viewed on the BigRoad blog and received a ton of shares/likes/comments on our social media networks, particularly Facebook.
If you missed any of these blogs or want a second look, here are the Top 5 Blogs from BigRoad for 2015.

Yes indeed – it is finally here! So what does that really mean for you?
Well, if you have been required to use paper logs to document your drive time and hours of service, then the mandate will require you to use an ELD – otherwise known as an electronic logging device.
Overdrive magazine reported earlier today that the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announced that the federal rule to require truck operators to use electronic logging devices to keep records of duty status is slated to be published in the Federal Register this Friday. The rule will take effect Dec. 10, 2017, giving carriers and drivers a two-year window to comply with the rule’s requirements.
