“I’ve been trucking for 30 years – it’s never been this bad. Rest areas won’t let you park there, and the truck stops are just full.”

“It got worse when they started closing rest areas. For us – the drivers who are doing right – we have no choice. We have to park where we can. There’s just not enough spaces for us.”

DILLON RUCKER JR.

    Many of the posting here are from drivers that are to young to remember that back in the late sixties and through most of the 70′s and 80′ on board computers were used to track how we were diving. What has been lost is the major Engine manufacturing companies went to court to stop third parties from pluging into the ECM’s.The programs the these companies use is very expencive and the trucking companies did not and were not going to pay a fee so they could plug in. This is going to be the samething all over again and if the industry would just read there history they would see that it failed then are it’s going to fail now for all of the same reasons.
