    Trucking Safety: Investigating the E6 and E10 Brake Valves

    in Current Events

    Serious accidents can occur when truck drivers experience a failure with the air brakes. Many drivers have been cited for failing to inspect the brakes properly or for driver fatigue. But what if it had nothing to do with inspection or fatigue, but instead, a long over-looked problem with defective brake parts?
    The NHTSA first began a recall of treadle valves in the 1970's, with the most recent recall as early as August, 2012. Many believe that this is a serious safety issue that could be the actual cause for many accidents that are ultimately blamed on the driver.
    Our guest, Allan Powell has over 30 years as a professional truck driver and is a consumer advocate for the prevention of truck accidents as he believes that many within the industry are unaware of the hidden dangers of treadle valve corrosion. Through his work, the CVSA released the 2012-2 Inspection Bulletin.
    Also joining us is Rickey Gooch, managing partner of Legal Benefits Group, as we discuss the E6 and E10 treadle valves, how this potential hidden danger can affect the driver and carrier, why this issue is even a greater threat today and why no serious industry study is being done to investigate the problem.

    Speed Limiters - Possible New Mandate for Truckers

    in Current Events

    With the CSA and the impending hours of service change, there is a new mandate on the horizon for the trucking industry. The NHTSA has begun the rulemaking procedure to make speed limiters mandatory on all heavy-duty trucks, with the set speed being 68 MPH. The move is being pushed heavily by the ATA, Road Safe America and nine major motor carriers. By governing all trucks to 68 MPH, will this improve safety or is this a way for the major carriers to level the playing field for the hiring of drivers in this new CSA environment?
