Truck drivers will use electronic logging devices next year

During December 2017, most commercial truck drivers in Louisiana and around the country will be required to log their working hours and track their on-duty status with electronic logging devices. The federal mandate applies to truck operators in the U.S. who drive trucks that were manufactured in the year 2000 or later. Truck drivers operating pre-2000 model trucks can continue to use paper logs after the rule goes into effect.
