Take Action: Submit Comment to FMCSA
Make your voice heard! Urge the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to exempt drivers in the power and communications industry from the electronic logging device (ELD) requirement.
Submit your comment now: please urge the FMCSA to grant PCCA’s request for the ELD exemption. Please add a personal or professional message. Personalized communications carry greater weight.
Contractors in America’s power and communications industry operate under significantly different circumstances than interstate truck drivers - as a result, the ELD rule will impose unnecessary burdens on our industry without any legitimate increase in safety. PCCA strongly believes a full exemption is warranted, but wants to point out that doubling the number of days a driver can use paper logs from eight to 16 days in the standard 30-day window would provide at least some relief to the burdens of the ELD rule.
