Bush didn’t overturn emissions regs, public needs truck education: Part 2 of OD visit to Road Dog

| February 04, 2014

In the second segment (in the player above) of Overdrive Executive Editor Jack Roberts’ visit to Mark Willis’ Road Dog Trucking News show on Sirius 128 earlier this month, the two continued to talk about the relationship — or lack thereof — between political parties and trucking regulations. 


‘Trucking always a target for regulations’ — Overdrive editor talks politics, trucking regs on Road Dog

A few weeks back, Overdrive Executive Editor Jack Roberts went on Mark Wills' Road Dog Trucking News on Sirius to talk trucking regulations and how ...

Roberts recalls in the segment a near rejoicing of the industry when the pro-business, anti-regulation President George W. Bush was elected in 2000, as truck makers and fleets thought their days of having to meet the series of tightening emissions standards were behind them. 

However, Bush didn’t touch the EPA regs, Roberts notes. 

Roberts and Willis in this segment also fielded calls from drivers and talked about how the general driving public needs to be better educated about the actions of trucks on the road and the physics behind them.

    Big companies always look for professional drivers. It is actually sad that legislators cannot provide programs to educate people. This is the major problem of our education. Everyone wants momentary profit but nobody wants to invest and take risks when it comes to projects like this. I can understand it. Two years ago I decided to use UK thesis writing company instead of going to college. I just could not leave my job. But average people and large companies are different. If they need experienced drivers they should use resources to educate and employ them.

    “general driving public needs to be better educated about the actions of trucks on the road and the physics behind them. ” I agreed. There are o lot of bad drivers and problems with them. Sometimes i think to buy house (using http://flatfy.pl) and than never use my car again.
