Video breaks down how ELDs and lack of parking create a dangerous situation for truckers

Published:

In this video, a trucker breaks down how Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) create a dangerous problem in the modern trucking industry.

The video was shared by TikTok creator Bob Murphy on July 4, 2023.

Murphy breaks down the pressure that ELDs put on drivers to hurry in order to comply with Hours of Service regulations and the demands of shippers and receivers. This feeling of a constant time crunch, combined with a lack of safe truck parking and an influx of newer drivers into the industry following the pandemic, have created a high pressure situation in which drivers are more likely to make deadly mistakes, he says.
