ABILENE, TX - The U.S Department of Transportation is changing the requirements when it comes to trucking and transporting.
A new mandate will require any trucks exceeding the weight limit to install an electronic logging device or EID.
It will monitor how long they have been on the road as well as require them to take breaks throughout the trip.
A West Texas trucking company is not happy with this new mandate because they see no reason to switch from the old logging system
Steve Flora says, “it’s a distraction in the truck in my opinion they have a bunch of electronic devices in the truck they’ve got their hands pretty full safely operating the truck without a bunch of extra electronic devices.”
The new mandate went into event in December.
