“It’s all about Safety” These are the famous words you’ll hear whenever a call to action needs support, usually creating laws and regulations affecting professional CMV drivers.
Along with such calls for more laws will follow the lobbyisst in support, fitting their agendas.
Where is the call to action for ”Michaels Law Amendment” an Amendment to 18 U.S. Code 926A proposed by James Lamb of the SBTC? The proposed amendment, would expand the existing Federal “Interstate Transportation of Firearms” statute into a right-to-carry law for all Americans engaged in interstate commerce. According to the Department of Labor, one person is MURDERED in the transportation industry EVERY WEEK! Should the NRA be supporting this?
Next, CRST refers to safety also in their request for exemption at the FMCSA. According to CRST, allowing CLP holders (Commercial Learners Permit) to drive team, with little or no OTR driving experience, U.S. highways would be safer and more productive.
