In 2023, the five most common ELD falsification methods (violations under §395.8(e) False log), were:

  1. Misusing personal conveyance (395.28 and Interpretation #26, 395.8)
  2. Logging out of the ELD and keep driving on the unassigned driver profile (395.32)
  3. Sharing ELD logins among drivers or using a “ghost driver” account (395.22)
  4. Unplugging the ELD while repositioning (395.20)
  5. Editing on-duty time to off-duty time (395.2 definition of On-duty time and 395.30)

A driver doesn’t have to use an ELD and can use paper logs on any day when:

  • Eligible for a short-haul exception,
  • Driving a pre-2000 model year vehicle or a vehicle with a pre-2000 model year engine,
  • Engaged in certain driveaway-towaway operations where the vehicle being driven is the cargo being delivered,
  • Required to use logs on eight or fewer days within any 30 consecutive days, or
  • Operating a CMV rented for a contractual period of 8 days or less.

Let our electronic logging devices (ELDs) track your fleet's GPS data for miles driven within each state and province. Data is transmitted to the Encompass® System where our reporting helps you reconcile and prepare IFTA reporting forms for each state and province electronically, saving you and your drivers time. Easily import fuel card data and audit it against driver hours of service records.

When paired with ELDs, the Encompass® Fleet Management System eliminates missing, illegible or late paperwork; forgotten entries; and erroneous information.
