Watch the video below to learn about how an electronic onboard recorder helps drivers and carriers in the event of adverse driving conditions.
Tip: A driver can’t use the emergency/adverse conditions to extend a trip that would have taken more time under normal circumstances. This is only for emergencies! Remember: if the weather report has issued snowfall or other bad weather warnings, that weather cannot be considered adverse driving conditions, because it was known in advance.
Your drivers may use an electronic recording device as long as they are able to display their HOS information on request for that day, and the previous 14 days. In fact, as you’ve heard Wayne Dubeau explain, electronic on-board recording devices can save carriers money and keep their drivers safer.
