Dear Congress: Don’t Delay Truck Safety
The Center for Auto Safety is the nation’s premier independent, member driven, non-profit consumer advocacy organization dedicated to improving vehicle safety, quality, and fuel economy on behalf of all drivers, passengers, and pedestrians.
The Center for Auto Safety joins consumer groups, trucking companies, truck drivers, law enforcement organizations and victims, in calling for installation of Electronic Logging Devices in large trucks and buses to track driver hours accurately, and reduce crashes due to fatigue. Congress mandated the installation of ELDs by law in 2012 and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) introduced the related regulation in 2015. These potentially life saving devices are long overdue in every large truck and bus engaged in interstate commerce.engaged in interstate commerce.
