In the United State, five of the leading trucking companies are demanding that the federal regulatory authority will come up with regulations that will require that interstate trucking companies install electronic on-board recorders on all their trucks to verify legal duty status of their drivers. Five of the giants in the trucking industry that have supported the idea include Schneider National, U. S. Xpress, J.B. Hunt Transportation Services, Knight Transportation, and Maverick USA. Most of the major players in the trucking industry are concerned about safety. They are willing to go to any length at ensuring that the trucking industry does not constitute danger to the environment or the people in the society. For USA Trucking Company safety remains the watchword and they are willing to embrace any legislation that supports the safety agenda.
According to them electronic on-board recorders will improve safety on the highways by applying technology to the process of documenting driver’s compliance to the hours of service rules. According to the federal laws, truck drivers are allowed to work for 10hours of service. The legislation would allow the installation of an electronic device that would identify the truck drivers, record the driving status, and could monitor the location and movement of vehicles. The current practice of the use of log books is rife with fraud while the use of electronic on-board recorder will improve working conditions of commercial drivers and promote safety on the highway.
