As of New Year’s Day, federally-regulated commercial trucks and busses will have to electronically log their driving hours, instead of writing them down.

“It is critically important that drivers in the trucking sector have accurate logs to help avoid fatigue-related incidents,” Nova Scotia Public Works Minister Kim Masland said in a recent news release.

Ottawa changed the federal regulations in 2019 but didn’t make it mandatory until June of last year, which was extended to the end of 2022.

It will apply to those travelling between provinces.

Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Newfoundland and Labrador will enforce the new rule on January 1.
