Tonight is a very solemn topic for truckers, Suicide by Truck, discussing the horrible incidents of pedestrians and four-wheelers, who choose speeding trucks as an instrument of their suicide Although the subject matter is not uncommon among veteran drivers, it's not often a preferred topic of discussion in the chat rooms.
A truck driver whose truck has been randomly chosen as the means to anothers' end, may silently struggle for years with the horrific guilt and graphic memories of the incident.
Our guest tonight on AskTheTrucker Live is Carolyn Magner Mason, special contributor for Overdrive Magazine.
Carolyn has recently written the eerily popular “Suicide by Truck” 4 part series for Overdrive Magazine.
Video of 'Suicide by truck' on I-35E in Texas caught on owner-operator's dashcam.
Call in tonight and share your thoughts about this topic, whether it be an opinion, or your own personal experience or even near experience of "Suicide by Truck".
Also tonight I will be discussing these topics: 21 Prepper Tips I Wish I’d Heard BEFORE I Started Prepping, 6 Skills To Take You From Novice To Advanced Prepper, 4 Healthy Foods That Serve as Natural Antibiotics, Busting the Canned Food Expiration Date MYTH

TOPIC: Suspension of the July 2013 Hours of Service Changes
The Women Truckers Network Discusses "The Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act of 2015" which was enacted on December 16, 2014, suspending enforcement of requirements for use of the 34-hour restart as it was defined in July 2013. The sudden change left many drivers confused about what components were included, AND left out of the "deal" made by the American Trucking Association (ATA) lobby group and Senator Susan Collins (R-ME).
While overall, truck drivers are in favor of the mandates that were enacted in the 2013 restart, clarification to the people these federal regulations affect remained cloudy. Where did the number 82 come from? IS the 30 minute break part of this decision? What happens if you are stopped by the DOT and they have not been advised of the change?
The WTN shares 1st hand experiences with the restart and other observations on protecting yourself during the transition while awaiting the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration to publish the new rules. This podcast recording was created prior to the FMCSA posting a final rule. You can now locate them on the internet using this link: Summary of Hours of Service Regulations

Many people expect Pope Francis is ready to trash US capitalism. Rick Tallent, highly-opinionated political analyst, experienced bi-vocational minister, and author of “Of Friends and Family,”will be joining us to discuss the Pope Francis' visit to the Unitied States. As the U.S. presidential campaign exposes contempt for elites and angst over the future, Pope Francis arrives for his first visit with plans to denounce gross inequality and planetary neglect.
In addition, this morning we will attempt to answer the questions: Is the US ready for another partial or complete government shutdown? Will the GOP survive another shutdown?
