Weigh In

Roads & Bridges magazine is asking a question on their most recent poll that is likely to provoke some strong feelings:

Should truck drivers have shorter hours and on-time duty? FMCSA says yes, and Washington says no.

What's your take? Visit to weigh in.

I think the HOS Rules are fine for truck drivers, considering all the other rules they have to follow as well. However, there are those other drivers out there, the ones on 4 wheels .. they don't have to submit to random drug tests, and they can drive until they fall asleep behind the wheel without a care in the world. Not to mention the fact that those other drivers just can't seem to understand that a 70-foot long, 40-ton vehicle isn't going to turn or stop on a dime ... but they cut-off the trucks, stop short in front of them, and generally act like asses around big trucks. I've seen it more times than I can count. Oh, and by the way ... I have many, many miles of safe driving in both a 4-wheeler and an 18-wheeler ... and I do BOTH legally.
