Anti-ELD protests to begin Dec. 4

Is planning a series of protests at over 40 locations across the country on Monday Dec. 4. The 19,000-member group ELD or I originally aimed to hold protests in every state and Charlie Claburn, one of the organizers for the group’s national effort, noted that larger states will have multiple rallies. We’re going to have some pretty heavy hitters speaking on Monday, noted Claburn, a longtime driver and trucking activist based in Diberville, MS, in Facebook broadcast. Amateur hour is over 9 a.m. on Monday Dec. 4.

Truck drivers are all in it together it’s a team effort. He also stressed that the protests are not just focused on the ELD mandate. You think it just about the ELD; we have a lot bigger problems than that little black box they are trying to put in our trucks, Claburn added. State governments too; truck drivers are targeted in order to bring in revenue that’s all we are to them, a source of revenue. The ELD or me coalition said it will seek to inform the general public at via its protest that the devices are unsafe as they will force truck drivers to play beat the clock on highways across the nation.

To the calling for a. With manufacturers of ELDs currently responsible for self-certifying their compliance with government standards drivers and operators are left without any way of ascertaining what brands and models of devices will ultimately pass muster, he said in the letter. Law enforcement is simply not ready for this, noted Todd Spencer, executive vice president of the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association At present, none of the 193 devices listed on the FMCSA website have been validated by the agency or any unbiased, third-party testing program, OOIDA said. Most small-business truckers can ill afford to make these purchases only to learn later that their ELD is non-compliant, Spencer stressed. ELD or Mes Claburn stressed that is but one reason the ELD mandate must be stopped and why the group is protesting on a nationwide basis on Monday. Truckers matter; our lives matter too and they are putting our future and business in jeopardy, he said. We as professional drivers have a right to be heard.
