US pays for recorders on Mexican trucks

Published to the CV Show website on

Transport Topics reports the US Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration will require all Mexican trucks entering the United States to have electronic onboard recorders (a sort of US step along the road to tachographs) and will pay for them.  The move follows US worries over Mexican drivers' hours.  The deal is that the FMCSA would own and control all data gathered by the recorders, which will include GPS capabilities.  This will be part of the cross-border trucking agreement reached last week between the United States and Mexico.  The FMCSA also wants US carriers to fit similar kit in their trucks, at their own expense.
