    get it together drivers and strike because of the eletronic log device that is a violation of your rights my husband has been a driver for over 40 years with e logs loads will take longer to deliver and money will most assuredly be less why arte drivers going to let the U S government control a truckers livlihood like that dont they contro; us enough I thought this was a free country, this will let them search and seize anything they want with no cause at all so get it together I hope Pres. Trump stop this without truckers the country would come to a complete halt we need these good drivers!

    Perhaps you could explain this thought a little more fully, because I believe you to be grossly mistaken.

    If elds slow trucks or stop them maybe the rates will go up because now their will be more of a demand. All elds do is force driver to run legal. Under the current HOS. Why not change the HOS if people don't like them.

    Please explain how loads would take longer to deliver. Hos is the same weather your on paper or eld.

    I've been on them for about five yrs now it hasn't taking me any longer to deliver a load.
    What I really like is no one nagging me about form and maner mistakes.
    There's several more reasons I like'm

    But again please explain how loads will take longer.
    Oh wait a minute let me guess, your husband is one of those that helped create this mess because he ran two or three books.

    So...are electronic time clocks at any other form of employment also a violation of rights? Should allAmerican workers be able to keep their hours on paper? Your argument has no merit, if he was running legally on paper, there should be no affect from using elogs. If he wasn't, who exactly is violating laws??

    Using elogs has absolutely nothing to do with laws pertaining to search and seizure either....

    All eld does is make people follow the rules, nothing wrong with that. Right.

    It doesn't even force anyone to follow the rules, it just makes it really easy to prove they didn't and to then punish them.

    I always thought of the HOS like the speed limit. It's a good guideline but that's about it. How about we use technology to punish everyone every time the exceed the speed LIMIT.

    ELD is coming, we'll all deal with it and survive but it's just another step towards turning society into a bunch of trained monkeys.

    The people with 3 log books didn't create e logs.
    The morons at the mega's that couldn't even keep one did.
