Supreme Court Rejects OOIDA Challenge of ELD Rule

The U.S. Supreme Court had declined to accept review of a challenge by the Owner–Operator Independent Drivers Association of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s final rule mandating the use of Electronic Logging Devices by drivers of commercial motor vehicles in interstate commerce. The decision means the ELD mandate will go into effect on December18, 2017 as scheduled.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit had previously rejected OOIDA’s arguments against the ELD rule. Despite the Supreme Court’s decision, OOIDA states it will continue to pursue the issue in Congress.

The FMCSA has still not yet ruled on the petition by the Truck Renting Leasing Association to exempt drivers of vehicles rented for 30 days or less from the ELD requirements, however.
