  1. We are doomed any way if they pass these new bills requiring a new round such as lane assist and crash avoid system you see our trucks are going to eventually driving by computer well they need test dummies so how do they do that they add all the equipment now and can run massive test and make money off of the equipment remember as soon as they put the elds in the trucks they can track every move of every truck they sail that information to the highest bidder

        1. ELDs was set into law during Obama admin.

          Neither democrats or republicans care about middle class and truckers.
          Politicians do whatever to get votes then serve themselves and the rich.

          The country would be better off by eliminating 80%+ of politicians. (House of Reps especially)

          Democrats and republicans created loopholes for employment of illegal aliens.
          Wage deflation while serving the needs of business owners to make more profit at the expense of middle class and taxpayers.

  2. Most definitely need more parking space. For every truck stop out there, needs to be at least 2 or 3 more in same location or close, same thing for state rest stops, for everyone there needs to be 2 or 3 just the same, or just add on to current one, gotten really awful with parking. A certain industry wasn’t thinking ahead of time, or didn’t have the budget to expand that way.

  3. It’s a shame that they get so many taxes from trucking but we struggle to do our jobs we can start with parking but we need real truckers in politics how do we do that maybe ask someone like babin to run for president and support democrats or Republicans if they are going to help or pocket books get behind them

  4. My belief for every trucker out there I mean every trucker in in all states let’s shut this whole country down at the same time in every company for three days do not go to work they will listen then let the politician deliver the products and the brokers and greedy shippers I say we shit it down for at least a week all of us we have more power than the government itself if we all shut down at the same time I mean every trucker not one left out

  5. If your a trucker you are a slave . This is just going to lower your slave wages more . The Master on govt needs to control your whole life

    1. true….point taken…..but thats why there ud GOD..enough said.those that are filthy stinken rich and power hungry will be the first to BUR n HELl
