It would be interesting to know what percentage of losses are paid out by insurance companies, how much is written off by trucking companies and what shipper’s liabilities were.
Expect MORE theft as we import MORE and MORE criminal INVADERS thanks to OBAMA and his catch and release and how he fights Sherriff Joe to open the Floodgates of 3rd world starving aliens…what do we expect??? What do they have to LOSE by ripping off a trucker??
Today COPS associated w Trucking are WAY too looking for mud flap violations to actually ARREST a THIEF!! Today this high paid COPS..fully dressed with Gun and Badge will be taking an HOUR or so to poke around a Working Trucker’s rig trying to find a tread depth violation..or perhaps you didnt LOG ur 30 min Waste of Time break?? WHEN would a COP have TIME to hunt down CRIMINALS when he is busy with these Baby Sitting Duties?? There is only So Many COPS…but a GROWING amount of CRIMINALS pouring over the border AND be released from PRISON my Jerry Brown for Lack of ROOM to house them??? Cops have many MORE babysitting duties with all the NEW RULES being Heaped on Trucking today…I would expect truckers will become VICTIMS alot MORE in the future.
Go figure. All the stuff stolen, was stuff used by the south of the border illegals, I mean immigrants, that come here to work for next to nothing, in their odummer funded businesses. How can they afford rent, you ask? Put 10 guys in a mobile home, each making $7/hr. Together they make $70/hr. and they put in 50-60 hrs./wk, = $35-$4200 per week. In a few wks. time, they have enough money to buy 2 or 3 cars to go to work, plenty of food on the table, beer for their parties, AND they’ve sent money back to Mexico.
hello guest… thanks for the laugh… u know that’s (18 for dbl xl trac + tndm trail 16) grooves that some poor DOT officer is going to take minimum 1/2 hr to check not to mention if this falls on his/her lunch break break. What if their plastic ruler breaks to measure grooves? they may have to start all over again – they lost their place!
