I noticed a lot of trucks doing 57 to 62 very rarely came across a truck doing 65+ except me this is my second week i have not been pulled into a scale yet for inspection ie red light only crossed open scales SO I WAS WONDERING CAN THEY SEE I WAS SPEEDING ON ELD?

    Why not look at your ELD to see what the officer is able to see? In answer to your question, it's the same as paper. I've heard some states will give out tickets if the average speed is higher than the speed limit, but I've never seen any creditable proof.
    Also, if you feel the need to speed, you are in the wrong profession.

    Never heard of that happening...

    Your ELD device does record your speed I'm sure, but the officer should not be able to access that. They should only be able to see your 8 days logs, HOS, etc. I suppose they could look at the amount of time it takes for you to get from point A to point B and question that, but I don't see how that could really result in a speeding ticket unless you were going a hundred miles an hour.

    I had an officer in St.Paul, MN scale house ask me once during the inspection what speed was I traveling through Chicago area after looking at my paper log book. I told her I didn't remember all my speeds (too many limits for different vehicles in the area). I guess she was trying to figure out my average speed and was looking for a confession; she gave me a clean inspection sticker that time. My take is if your average speed is not 5 or over the speed limit, then you should be OK but I am not so sure if things are the same now with ELDs and especially in Kalifornia.

    I remember being told that this could happen way back in trucking school. Never met anyone or heard about anyone that it actually happened to though.
