HOS Violations Report

Provided byGeotab Inc.


HOS Violations not only cause monetary ramifications but can potentially have a massive impact on your Carrier Safety Score. The ELD HOS Violations report gives administrators a detailed view of the number of occurrences for each violation as well as the Top Violators in the fleet.


This report is a great tool for Transport Carriers for internal evaluation and to implement driver training, as necessary. Combined with the HOS Violations Cost Report, the ELD HOS violations report can create useful insights and metrics for a Carrier Safety program. This report can also prove helpful during a regulatory audit.


We recommend the following when running this report:
