Public ignorant to costs added to goods by trucking regulations: Part 3 of OD spot on Road Dog

In the third segment of his talk on Mark Willis’ Road Dog Trucking News show last month, Overdrive Executive Editor Jack Roberts said the public doesn’t realize the burden it bears in paying for goods with prices elevated by regulations placed on the trucking industry. 

Roberts talk with Willis centered on political party ideologies and their relationship to trucking regulations, with Roberts’ point being — stemming from a blog post he wrote last month — that trucking catches regulatory flack no matter what party is in control. 

Moreover, the public, due to mostly misunderstanding of the trucking industry, doesn’t mind trucking regulations, as they think it makes the roads safer.
