DOT/FMCSA RIN: 2126-AA89 Publication ID: Spring 2008 
Title: Electronic On-Board Recorders for Hours-of-Service Compliance 
Abstract: This rulemaking would amend the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations to incorporate new performance standards for electronic on-board recorders (EOBRs) to document compliance with the Federal hours-of-service rules. This would help ensure that performance standards for EOBRs are appropriate and reflect state-of-the-art communication and information management technologies. The rulemaking would consider the potential benefits and costs of requiring motor carriers to install and use EOBRs and evaluate alternative approaches including: 1) mandating such practice industry-wide, 2) limiting the requirement to motor carriers with certain characteristics, and 3) allowing EOBR use to remain voluntary.
