The problem with increasing weight is that they want to raise the weight to 97,000, but they don’t want to compensate the drivers fairly. It takes more fuel, and more time. It may take more horsepower so there’s another expense. Most companies want us to do more for less. We can’t give them everything they want at our expense. We live in a time of increase money crunch, and no ones feels it more than the driver. They can increase the limit, but we don’t have to pull without FAIR compensation
