Safety for truck drivers is always a relevant topic. The electronic logging device rule, also known as ELD rule, is designed to help improve safety for all drivers. It is also intended to make it easier and faster to accurately track and manage records of duty status (RODS) data by syncing with the truck engine to track driving time without any manual effort.
