If you have been running any of those emergency loads, today is the official last day before you need to dust off those ELDs and start logging again. Sure, there are a few exceptions but the majority of drivers that were running logless will now need to be back in compliance. In the last few hours you can look back and see if you made any extra money. I know this was generally limited to owner operators as many companies did not allow their drivers to run over hours, mine included. Did we hear about horrible accidents? No. Was there death and destruction on the highway? No. Were loads delivered safely? Yes. I doubt there will be another time like this although who knows what will happen next. I am still waiting for the murder hornets.
See you on the road!
