    The ELD rule is being implemented in three phases:

    The following table illustrates the different devices that can be used during each phase:

    ELD AOBRD Logging Software Paper
    Phase 1
    ▄ ▄ ▄ ▄
    Phase 2 ▄ ▄
    Phase 3
    Phase 1: Awareness and Transition Phase: The two-year period following publication of the ELD rule February 16, 2016 to December 18, 2017.

    During this time, carriers and drivers subject to the rule should prepare to comply, and may voluntarily use ELDs.

    Carriers and drivers subject to the rule can use any of the following for records of duty status (RODS):

    • Paper logs
    • Logging software
    • AOBRDs (Automatic On Board Recording Devices)
    • ELDs that are self-certified and registered with FMCSA
    Phase 2: Phased-In Compliance Phase: The two-year period from the Compliance Date to the Full Compliance Phase (four years following ELD rule publication) December 18, 2017 to December 16, 2019.

    Carriers and drivers subject to the rule can use:

    Phase 3: Full Compliance Phase: After December 16, 2019 all drivers and carriers subject to the rule must use self-certified ELDs that are registered with FMCSA.

    I'm perfectly fine with them. I only ever ran even somewhat illegally in the beginning of my career, when I wasn't making money and didn't know any better.
