Canadian drivers will soon be required to electronically record their hours

Canada’s Federal Government says it will soon implement new safety regulations requiring drivers to use electronic logging devices. The move is aligned with U.S. efforts to tackle fatigue among truck and bus drivers.

Transport Canada says that Canadian drivers will be required to electronically record their hours on the road, marking a change from the mandatory paper logs that have been in use since the 1930s.

The regulations would cover cross-border and interprovincial travel and should be in place when similar rules in the U.S. come into force in late 2017.

Whether you’re a owner/operator or manage a fleet of trucks, Fourteen Forty GPS has a solution to help you transition to the new requirement with confidence. Contact us today for more information.
