OPEN FORUM: 2016 Top concerns for professional drivers
It's 2016 and many of us are reflecting upon 2015 and so many of the events and issues which have taken place. There were many highlight topics for 2015, including one of the most controversial of the year, the FMCSA Final Rule for the ELD mandate. Why are so many professional drivers up in arms over this mandate? How does it negatively affect driver wages? And why do others say they can earn higher profits with an ELD?
As we open up 2016 on AskTheTrucker "Live" we're not only going to discuss YOUR concerns for this year, but those plans to address them. What are your top issues for 2016? Wages? HOS? Detention Pay? ELD's? Truck Parking? Regulations? EPA? But more importantly, what are your thoughts and ideas to confront those issues which seem to have a direct impact on the livlihood of professional truck drivers?
Join us as we enter 2016 on AskTheTrucker "Live" with our first broadcast of the New Year: Open Forum "2016 Top concerns for professional drivers."

Miami-Dade commissioners passed an ordinance in favor of ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft.
The ordinance, proposed by Commissioner Esteban Bovo, passed on first reading 10 to 2 .
Uber got almost all that it asked for. Some requirements were placed on the ride-sharing companies: The drivers must obtain a county license, they must undergo background tests at Uber’s expense, their vehicles must undergo annual inspections to make sure they’re safe.
They will not be required to be insured 24 hours a day, but only when they are going to be carrying and dropping off passengers.
Topic: Sliding Tandems and Heavier Trucks
Tractor-Trailer Drivers Are Responsible for making sure the weight in their trailer is distributed correctly. Our discussion is on sliding tandems, why we do it and how to do it PLUS Heavier Trucks, The trucking lobby wants heavier trucks but they don't drive them, truck drivers do and overwhelmingly truck drivers think it is a bad idea.

Thursday 12-3-15 6PM "FMCSA Health Updates for CDL drivers"
With Truck Driver Health continuing to be a major concern among drivers and the rest of the trucking community, Elaine Papp of HealthadnSafetyWorks.net joins us once again to keep us up to date on what is coming down the pike with FMCSA rules and possible changes.
We'll be discussing the possibility of VA doctors being given the authority to perform CDL health physicals for U.S. Veterans who meet criteria for VA health care benefits, without having to be a part of the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners.
We'll also be reviewing the rules for Insulin dependent diabetics and the progress on the NPRM regarding doing away with Insulin Exemptions for CDL drivers. FMCSA is proposing to permit drivers with stable, well-controlled insulin-treated diabetes mellitus (ITDM) to be qualified to operate commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) in interstate commerce.
Finally, what's happening with Sleep Apnea Ruling? What should we be expecting?

With statements like "I beat China all the time!" and "I could shoot someone and not lose voters!" potential future US Prsident Donald Trump epitomises all that is great about America, if by the word 'great' you mean 'mindnumbingly idiotic'. The good news, however, is that most of the other potential POTUS' are an equally horrible lot, so at least there's some consistency. If it is true that the people of a country get the leaders they deserve, then what does the line-up for the next "commander in chief" say about American society?
But Americans shouldn't feel too bad, Europe (and much of the rest of the world) is in equally dire straits, both at the political and social level. Someone appears to have decided that it's a good idea to try and tear the fabric of European society apart by flooding the union with desperate and angry refugees, along with a smattering of jihadi terrorists, thereby inflaming racial, religious and ethnic tensions.
Meanwhile, there are growing signs that that strangely self-aware animal known as the 'global economy' is in very poor health, and may even be planning to throw itself off a fiscal cliff in the near future, dragging us all down with it.
A perfect storm of mindless inanity and fecklessness at the global leadership level, hysterial and xenophobia at the social level, and unfettered greed at the economic level, seems set to blow up in all of our faces. Time to sit back and watch the show?

God Bless You - See you there!
It is no doubt that sometimes if not all the time, humans get very greedy. Well, there is no exception to the transportation industry and we have the stories to prove it. Trucking Scams are very much real. But what sort of trucking scams could possibly be so crazy that they are worldwide trucking scams, or even scams that form in Canada and spread through the good old United States? Well, this week we will be tearing down each and every one of these crazy trucking scams out there and try to figure out what was going on in these industry leaders minds!
