    Default All FMCSA Information

    “FMCSA continues to use crashes that motor carriers did not cause nor could have prevented in measuring motor carrier safety performance,” ATA President and CEO Bill Graves said. “Several weeks ago, the agency indefinitely placed on hold a process to correct this fundamental flaw in the system, citing, in part, concerns with the reliability and usefulness of police accident reports. To better understand FMCSA’s reluctance to act, the public should see the results of the study the agency promised almost two years ago.”

    Default All FMCSA Information

    ARLINGTON, Va. — On Monday, the American Trucking Associations, along with the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance and AAA, released a video urging members of Congress to support an electronic onboard recorder mandate for large trucks to improve driver and carrier compliance with Hours of Service rules.

    YES YES YES !!
    I have agreed with this for years.
    It will level the playing field, eliminate the illegal drivers, the cheaters and make everyone conform to the same standards.
    It may even make the roads safer and return the professional truck driver to the "Professional" rank we so deserve.

    More government control over us. What about those drivers that don't cheat? Why should they punished?

    Who said they are being punished ?
    If they are legal, follow the law ( like you have said many times before ) and drive safe, compliant equipment, then why is there any problem with that ?
    Or would you rather have the illegal equipment and drivers that smash their way along the roads now ?

    If they are legal, then why do they need to be monitored like that?

    So that everyone conforms, not just the few that are compliant now.

    HOG ... since you seem to disagree with the prospect of having EOBR in all vehicles, can I assume you want to see the continuation of unsafe and illegal drivers and equipment on the roads ?
    Do you want ABF to compete on a level playing field with all trucking companies ?

    Nope, we already have laws, just up enforcement,

    And I don't want a level playing field. I want ABF to gain any advantage they can(LEGALLY).

    Are you saying hire more enforcement personnel ? Doesn't that mean more taxes, more people on the pension system of public employees you so dislike ?
    How many would be enough ?
    Yet if we make all equipment carry EOBR's, we don't need the extra enforcement people, and the related costs to the taxpayer.
