AOBRD malfunctions addressed during CVSA webinar

Officers to apply ELD requirement to AOBRDs

Posted February 14, 2018

Roadside inspectors will treat malfunction events for compliant automatic on-board recording devices (AOBRDs) the same as they would for electronic logging devices (ELDs), according to the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA).

During a CVSA webinar on February 7, 2018, the association indicated it will apply Section 395.34(d) to both device types. As a result, if a motor carrier receives or discovers information concerning an AOBRD malfunction, it must take actions to correct the malfunction within eight days of discovery of the condition or a driver’s notification to the motor carrier, whichever occurs first.
