    I order ELD a few weeks ago and they have a long que, still not sent out yet. The sent me a confirmation order to show proof I ordered one. Will this swing with the DOT officer? I know we aren't being put OOS, but I also don't want to be paying for fines

    If you're required to be on ELD and you are not, proof that you have ordered it will not get you out of paying the fine if checked.

    My suggestion to you is if the one you wanted can't get to you in time, find another one you can have in your hand by the weekend. Then, either cancel the order on the other one and just run the one you could get, or run the one you could get until you switch to the one you wanted when it finally arrives.

    Truck stops have them in stock. Just swing in there and pick one up. That's the only way to avoid paying the fine if you're checked.

    So the grace period just doesn't put you OOS?

    Grace period? Are you one of those people that watch a hurricane coming at you for over 2 weeks then complain that you needed rescuing?

    I was told no grace period We have had 2 years to get one so waiting to the last minute is no excuse. It’s gonna be a revenue building tool to pay for all these new chicken coops..... If you’re not on an approved ELD come Monday you will be making a contribution to their cause....

    Exactly. Enforcement begins Monday. They will be writing tickets. You just won't be placed OOS yet.

    Since they have a grace period you are probably good to get one some other time. :)
