    • Deferral of hours - Drivers operating under the Canada South Cycle can defer up to two hours of their required daily off-duty time to the next day and it gets saved in daily Driver logs under ELD.
    • Cycle switch limit - Drivers won’t be able to switch between Cycle 1 (7 days) and Cycle 2 (14 days) unless they’ve taken the required off-duty time.
    • Yard move limit - ELDs will automatically switch to the driving status once a Driver has exceeded the 32 km/h (speed) Yard Move limit.
