    I don't know if this was discussed recently but I couldn't find anything and , if it was, it seems to be a topic worth repeating.

    When I was at the union meeting yesterday, the president was saying "CSA 2010" is bad news for commercial drivers, when fully implemented this summer.

    Apparently, CSA 2010 is a new set of rules/standards applied to all commercial vehicle license holders. And, new standards supposedly consists of a new "point" system for a variety of violations which can result in license suspensions for both at fault and non-fault accidents and much more.

    Making matters even more interesting or worse is the fact that you can loose your license for mechanical problems even though you, as a driver, have no way of knowing they exist.

    I don't possess a CDL, so I don't know anything about it. However, here's the best info that I could find while googling...
