I predict within the next three years that Congress will mandate Electric On Board Recorders (EOBR) because EOBR’s make the trucking industry safer. While the FMCSA has a final rule to require EOBR’s on about 1,000 motor carriers, I would expect that this rule will be significantly expanded. While EOBR’s can still be faked, and I have blogged on the subject before, they are much more difficult to fake making it easier to show violations of the FMCSR.
