The Tolling of Interstate 4 is being done with "Public Private Partnerships".
Public Private Partnerships violate the Florida State Constitution. Public Private Partnerships are the collusion of government and the private sector (see below). Federal funding is being used for I-4 and the Wekiva Parkway Toll Road.
Florida SR 408 Toll Taxes equate to a $2.00+ gallon gas tax. Toll taxes equate to highway robbery, AND they increase our cost of living and harm our national security. The Interstate Highway system was designed as part of our national defense and here it is being sold off. We must unite and stop this. "Dwight D.

Get started with your Motor Carrier Authority! Learn the ins and outs of being a motor carrier.
What are the different types of authority granted by the FMCSA and how are they different? How can you check the credit of brokers or potential direct customers? We will talk about how to apply for the authority that you need and how to make sure you're doing business with other reputable companies. Plus, your tips, tricks, and questions will all be discussed on the show tonight!
Our opening topic for the show will be, "Does law enforcement have the right to wake up drivers while they are on their federally mandated 10 hour break?
Kenny Capell will be checking in with us to share his experience. Kenny was arrested last year for Obstruction of Justice while on his mandatory 10 hour break, and after nearly one year, the case was just dismissed as of Feb. 6th, 2015. Is this a victory for truckers in general as they face other challenges in maintaining HOS compliance?
Join us as we review the almost year long journey, including the 'Request for ‘Pattern and Practices’ Investigation of Georgia Motor Carrier Compliance Division;Civil Application Pursuant to Title 42,U.S.C.,Section14141" by James Lamb of SBTC.
If time allows, we will continue discussion on the importance of truck driver health. Do you believe that more truckers are making a stand for their health and well-being?
Also, what about the continuous and ongoing surge for more regulations or the driver recruitment and retention issue? We'll try to get to this topic as well . . . It's anything "TRUCKING" on our OPEN FORUM broadcast.
