Ohio.com reports on the debate over trucker logbooks. Despite recent advances in technology, many truckers use paper logbooks to record their work schedules.
Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration requires logbooks to make sure truckers are complying with laws regulating their driving hours to insure they get time to rest.
Electronic logs have been suggested before, but lack of funding or a plan to implement a system have stood in the way.
Other view electronic logs as vulnerable as paper logs to altering or fear the system would put truckers under the thumb of a big-brother surveillance system.
