Guest: John Seidl, former roadside inspector and FMCSA investigator, now trucking consultant and vice-president of risk management at Reliance Partners

The problem of truck drivers cheating on their logs hasn’t gone away with the disappearance of paper logbooks and the electronic logging device mandate that followed. However, in order to catch this activity, fleets have got to step up their monitoring of ELD data or they may face some severe consequences.

Listen to this episode of the “Eyes on the Road” podcast, presented by PrePass, as former roadside inspector and FMCSA investigator John Seidl, now a trucking consultant and vice president of risk management at trucking insurance company Reliance Partners talks with host Evan Lockridge. They discuss why logbook cheating continues, how fleets can help reduce it and how those who cheat have a greater chance of being caught than when paper logs were being used.
