What must a motor carrier do if there is an electronic logging device (ELD) malfunction?

If an ELD malfunctions, a motor carrier must:

  1. Correct, repair, replace, or service the malfunctioning ELD within eight days of discovering the condition or a driver’s notification to the motor carrier, whichever occurs first; and
  2. Require the driver to maintain paper record of duty status (RODS) until the ELD is back in service.
