trucking news headlines


the following are some headlines from different sites that have a negative impact on the trucking industry. I started to do the headlines i found from five different sites and go back 6 months but the list got so long I only used the info found on three sites and all but one only goes back about three month.
this is probably 10% of the negitive news for trucking in the time period but if I was to give the headlines for all it would take a couple of hours to read.

This is why the truckers have got to get together and put a stop to this crazyness before it goes so far we will never be able to make a difference.
And before someone says something,yes a few of them my be duplicated I tried not too but with so many bad news stories it got so big I am sure I missed a few

Fortunately, many of these things can be fought as they are in their beginning stages.

Unfortunately, not enough truck drivers will pay attention to what is going on, and won't worry about it until things are passed into law and it is too late.

Kind of like NAFTA.
