I spoke with OOIDA a couple of weeks ago and they told me that it is still NOT settled. I am sooo glad that my truck is older, as well.

They elaborate on it? I hope to be in a older truck (who said that ever?) by June.

I don't remember all the particulars of why they think that there is still some opportunity to stop this from being implemented. Prior to OOIDA's lawsuit, I believe those with 5 or fewer trucks were exempt from elogs. The latest ruling includes everyone. I was encouraged to see that older trucks may be exempt.

I heard the same thing about the 5 trucks but that was over the summer. Every thing I read now pre 2000 model year is exempt.

OOIDA seems to be the only organization that is fighting the ELD's.
