San diego dot csa compliance inside truck cabThe debate rages on over the use of Electronic OnBoard Recorders in trucks nationwide. Some drivers don’t mind them, others are vehemently against them, the ATA has voiced their support, and OOIDA stands firmly in opposition.

According to a survey from trucking acquisition firm Transport Capital Partners, in February of 2013, 35% of fleets surveyed said that they use EOBRs or electronic logs in all of their trucks. Compare that to May of 2012 when that was true of only 25%.

It’s worth noting that the survey was conducted about fleets, not individual drivers, so these numbers may not accurately reflect the number of individual trucks with electronic logs. In fact, that number may be even higher.
