Well, news was light last week, but it’s back with a vengeance, which means I’m pretty sure this week’s show is going to be long, so strap in and keep your cup of coffee handy so you don’t doze off. LOL
News this week includes American Trucking Association’s (ATA) CEO discussing trucking’s biggest issues with Congress, positive drug tests were up in 2022, lots of states making new road rules, how to make sure you have the best chance to get that next trucking job, and possibly the world’s worst trucker. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Listener feedback topics this week includes roundabouts, Canadian vaccine mandates, an and a lengthy discussion about truck driving schools. Also, it seems only right that someone would point out how bad I talk. LOL Alright, let’s get on with it.
