The company I am leased on are pushing me to install one on my truck and are claiming that it will be mandatory to have one on all trucks by 2017 but I can't find any info about it online. Does anybody knows if this is true?
Probably true. More and more companies are going to electronic logs. The department of transportation is pushing this. It makes it harder to cheat on your hours, etc.
Qualcomm hopes so…..
Great relevant answers, thank you
