This is the beginning of the end for US trucking. Blame Clinton for starting NAFTA with Mexico. All I can say is what a huge mistake.
This absolutely unacceptable. Why are we paying in taxes to support our competition? How dare these jerks in WASHINGTON DC do this to us.
I had to pay for my own tracking devices and probably will have to pay again for updates to be legal and to keep working. The FMCSA did not offer to pay for mine nor yours and it is our tax dollars that we paid in.
Are they subject to the CSA 2010 program as we are. The US has no way to check the driver or carrier safety record so I would guess not.
Actually it was not Clinton that started this . He was the first President that was in office when it became a head line. Ross Perot was against this NAFTA when he ran for president and it had been in the works for several years prior to that.
Research the collapse of Russia. What is being done here is parallel to what caused Russia to become the Former USSR. Just as if they were following a play book.
Wake up America. Time is short. 2012 will decide the fate of the US.
Actually in my opinion it is not any one presidents fault. It is ours. The American trucker. We have become complacent. We have allowed ourselves over the years to become lazy and acquired the “it doesn’t matter, it’s not mine” attitude. We have allowed our industry to become close to being bottom feeders in our actions and attitude and presence . We have as an industry become dumpster diver drivers and many large carriers have helped us along the way by lowering their standards.
We have lost the all important work ethic as an industry and it is now bitting us in the butt. Now we are paying for it and it really sucks to be us.
