FMCSA ELD Violations Information Updated
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has updated its Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) Safety Measurement System (SMS) website to include violations related to Electronic Logging Device (ELD) regulations found during roadside inspections. These violations are not being applied retroactively to April 1, 2018; violations recorded prior to April 1, 2018 will not be counted in SMS. Motor carriers that have received ELD-related violations will start to see them reflected in their Hours-of-Service (HOS) Compliance BASIC in early May 2018 when the next monthly SMS results are released. A complete list of the ELD violations and their severity weights is available in the SMS Appendix A spreadsheet. The SMS Methodology document will be updated following the May release.
