The Daily Dash: Rule changes for windshield cameras?

Trucking employment numbers up in June — but there’s more to it

The Daily Dash is a quick look at what’s happening in the freight ecosystem. In today’s edition, we look at a potential rules revision thanks to Daimler, more trouble for Lordstown Motors and more.

The High Five

1. Thanks to a request by Daimler Trucks North America, federal regulators will consider revising rules for windshield-mounted cameras in trucks that would make filing for exemptions unnecessary. John Gallagher from Washington


2. Just as the monthly data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows an indication that trucking jobs are finally starting to rise after months of mediocre growth, along comes the Council of Economic Advisers to toss a little cold water on the numbers. John Kingston’s analysis


3. A husband and wife who were involved in the Louisiana staged accident scheme have been sentenced to prison, and for a lot more time than previous sentencings. Anthony Robinson and Audrey Harris, who pleaded guilty to charges connected to the scheme, both received four years in prison. John Kingston’s story


4. The Justice Department is probing financially troubled Lordstown Motors Corp., according to several media reports. It is the latest blow to the company that plans to begin building battery-powered commercial pickup trucks this fall at a former General Motors plant in the northeast Ohio town from which it took its name.Alan Adler’s story


5. Canadian trucking and logistics firm Mullen Group has added another acquisition to its belt, buying Manitoba carrier and brokerage R.S. Harris Transport, an open-deck transport specialist.Nate Tabak’s story
