In this week’s edition of the Overdrive Radio podcast, listener Regi Rinear wonders at the risk for a company or leased operator of running with paper logs, as he was on Dec. 17, when ELDs are required — that’s with whatever large or little assurance can be mustered that support personnel have done what’s necessary to, if ultimately needed, extend the eight-day grace period FMCSA gives any carrier and/or driver experiencing an ELD malfunction.

Find in the podcast a reminder of just how to get that grace-period extension.

Also: More on the Entry Level Training Rule and its likely delay with operator Scott Hainline, who was trained twice, in entirely different trucking eras, bookended by a career in law enforcement. In addition to hope for the training rule, Hainline also looks forward to perhaps some 14-hour-rule relief in the new year.
