Today we’ve got an interview with Ellen Voie from the Women in Trucking Association, which is a non-profit organization that aims to help and promote women truckers. Dudes, don’t tune out. This is a discussion you need to hear too.
But before we get to that, we’ve got a month’s worth of news to catch up on that includes a major southern corridor opening back up, mirrorless trucks, deaf truckers, and sexual harassment. We’ll also look into what happens to your ELD data and what happens after a trucker has a stroke or seizure. Of course, we’ll also catch up with what the government is up to, including truck tolls, GPS apps, EPA guidelines, and I’ll give you an update of the California Lease-Operator debacle. And we’ll finish up with a couple of stories that involve truckers in pain.
To close out, we get a two-fer yummy Trucker Grub from driverchrismc and we only have a few quick emails from Daniel, Brandon, and Steve since we knocked out most of the feedback in the last mega-episode.
