Podcast Show Notes
TD170: Heartland Express Acquisition, 6 Pre-/Post-Trip Myths, Supreme Court Shuns Trucking, & More
In this week’s show, we discuss Heartland Express buying CFI, 6 pre- and post-trip inspection myths, another case the Supreme Court ignored, preparing for automated trucks, new services for truckers, and much, much, more. In the listener feedback segment, we’ve got some follow-up on that AB5 video from the OOIDA Foundation, and I have another idiot commenting on my tailgating article.
In the intro, I share stories of The Evil Overlord’s wreck and a musical hotel.
