    What do they hope to achieve?

    Other than piss off a bunch of people? Many who previously would have been sympathetic to their cause.

    No idea but I’ll bet you ass if two cars decided to do 50 mph in front of a bunch of truckers the truckers would run their ass off the road.

    I know parking is a big problem around here for truckers. So many neighborhoods have HOA rules or county rules against overnight truck parking. Makes it hard for them to go home for a few days.

    They passed a rule against it here. Parking their trucks for the weekend wasn't the problem. There were others that wanted to leave their trucks on residential streets all the time and ruined it for everyone else.

    Sounds like a business opportunity. Someone with a large open lot charge a small fee for parking.

  12. I love all the articles where they quote truckers complaining how it's not fair that they can't break the law anymore because of electronic logs.

    In the long run it will lead to better pay for them.


    Running less hours means pulling less loads. Pulling less loads leads to more truckers needed to pull said loads. More truckers adds to the shortage that already exists. Therefore driving up pay to attract more workers.

    I know a Walmart driver and he loves his job and has worked for them for over 20 years. He does work every weekend (Thurs and Fri are his days off) and is out of town all week. Not the job for everyone but does suit some people.

    Doesn't Obamacare provide free lot lizards?

    Nope. The lizards were a proposal in Trumps repeal and replace. Who knew healthcare could be so complicated?
