One of the executive orders that President Donald Trump issued early on in his presidency stated that for every new regulation added to the books, two existing regulations had to be taken off. There have been some questions as to how that order will apply to rules that have already been published but are not yet in effect.

One new reg that seems likely to get the ax is the speed limiter mandate, according to Joe Rajkovacz of Western States Trucking Associations.

"[Trump’s regulatory] freeze I think is a death knell for the speed limiter mandate — that’s an easy one since so many in the industry have ripped it apart," Rajkovacz told Overdrive Online.

The executive order is now being challenged in court. Public Citizen, the Natural Resources Defense Council, and a branch of the AFL-CIO filed a federal lawsuit to try to block the two-for-one rule. They cite rules like the speed limiter mandate and emissions standards as reasons why they want the order blocked.

Meanwhile, the national truck driver training standards that were supposed to go in effect this month have been delayed after President Trump's 60-day freeze on new regulations.

Totally agree with you there.. Would be great if OOIDA would boot out all their company driver members whose idiotic opinions they listen to. It's small owner ops that are getting killed by all the regulations.. We have 3 trucks, we won't be buying that elog junk. No way in hell can we come up with the money, nor the monthly fees.. It's crazy to force it on experienced truckers who don't need an electronic device to tell us when we are tired and screw up our business...  And speed limiters, ugh... Speed limiters that are already in existence need made illegal.. All vehicles should be made to do at least the posted limits whereever they run.  That is such a huge safety issue. Canada's truckers might even be getting their dumb speed limiter law repealed, they are proving how unsafe it is..

I believe the Speed Limiter will create move accidents.  If you have one truck that goes a hair faster, it will take forever for them to pass the other truck.  What happens is the cars behind get upset and start to get angry.  Sometimes when they finally get past they will speed to make up time.
This also can affect income  for owners with their own Authority.

When is the president going to stop thee regs on eobr's. It will put all O/O and small fleets at a disadvantage or out of business. Mega fleets will control all. Not good for the consumer!!

My personal opinion is the federal government wants to put us owner operators out of business, they want the bigger trucking co. to do it all. I personally can't  afford ELD, I'm on the road 2 weeks at a time & just barely paying my bills now.

IT IS NOT THE GOVERNMENT IT IS BIG CORPORATIONS THAT ARE BUYING THE GOVERNMENT SO THEY CAN MAKE THE RULES.  BIG TRUCKING WILL GET THE SMALL OUT.  NOW THAT AMERICANS ELECTED TRUMP ITS THE BEST TIME FOR BIG CORPORATION.  THE BIG WILL EATE THE SMALL.  BUT TRUMP WILL MAKE AMERICA GRATE AGAIN.

Come on now, Obama started this long ago. It's not fair to blame trump. If anything the bottom line is that the small guys need to finally stick together. We can make a difference.                                  REPEAL THE ELD!!   Pat (small fleet owner)

It's obvious that our memory span is short. This is over twenty years in the making. Big corporate interest will take the working man back a hundred years. Laws like the right to work will diminish the working man income and rights to a fair and dignified way of life. But we have the goats guarding the cabage patch. TRUMP.
