An 11.5 percent increase in citations for falsifying driver logs and a 14.8 percent jump in the number of drivers put out of service for falsifying logs in the last fiscal year underscore why federal regulators are mandating a switch to electronic logging devices (ELDs) on Dec. 18.

The latest roadside inspection data also show that while the number of driver roadside inspections and violations rose less than 1 percent, the number of violations that merited an out-of-service order rose 4.5 percent in fiscal 2017 to the highest level in four years.
