We will be reviewing the stories affecting trucking today and hoping some drivers will join us for a discussion regarding how enforcement of the sleep apnea rules are affecting them and what they are doing to comply with the physician's recommendation. Are there more 3 month med cards being issued? Are the physicians over stepping their authority? Did FMCSA not give enough guidance to physicians? Have you tried to be proactive and address any issues prior to going for your DOT physical? What's working, what's not? Have you searched the web for miracles? Why is it that many drivers have bad eating habits, lack of time to exercise or just plain can't pass physicals? Drivers? Companies? DOT? Physicians? Truck Stops? I believe all share the responsibility. Let's discuss it?
DISCLAIMER: We do not pretend to have all the answers nor know all the regulations, rules and rights. Remember states have the right to adopt all or some of the Federal Regulations so you must know your state laws as well as the Federal laws. We offer an arena to discuss both our and your experiences and best practices. Please keep in mind our goal is to improve the safety of our highways and byways across our great nation. We humbly defer to the regulatory agencies both state and federal to help all of us be the safest we can be.
We encourage everyone to contact the appropriate regulatory agency directly, however if you are not comfortable doing that please contact the Safety Mentor.

Trucking with Authority Episode 1
Getting started: A beginer's story with questions and answers.
Saturday 4-11-15 6PM ET : A hot topic for many within the trucking industry- the FMCSA.
To say the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has been under criticism and dissecting scrutiny is an understatement. Whether you are a company driver, owner operator, carrier, broker, organization, trade group, or Government Accountability Office, chances are you have found yourself fuming one time or another about an action FMCSA has either taken or proposed to take.
We open up with Tom Byerley of UrTruckBroker.com. Tom is a 44 year trucking veteran with over 4 million safe miles. Owner Operator turned freight broker, Tom shares his concerns with us tonight regarding the FMCSA’s CSA program scores and the affects they are making on the industry.
From there we will lead into other areas which are seriously affecting the trucking industry, including how those acting as “brokers” are avoiding the $75,000 bond designed to protect carriers from broker fraud.
Join us and share your views, insights and opinions. Let’s talk about it. Call in number: 347-826-9170.

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.
