How long must a motor carrier retain electronic logging device (ELD) record of duty status (RODS) data?

For six months, a motor carrier must keep both the ELD RODS data, and a back-up copy of that data on a separate device. The carrier must ensure that these records are stored securely to protect driver privacy.
