Chrome and Steel Radio had the opportunity to meet some incredible people in 2015 including a group of ladies at the Fergus Truck show who took the time out of their busy schedule that weekend to promote an event held annually in both Prescott & Woodstock, Ontario. Imagine an event that involves the trucking industry getting together to deck out their trucks in pink and hitting the 401 to help #SaveTheBoobies, and WOW, was it great being a part of both events.

There's a big national shortage of long-haul truck drivers, but you could wonder if the issue that caused an IN bridge collapse might have started years ago when, perhaps, driver Mary Lambright was absent for grade school when kids learn that 2,000 pounds equals one ton. In an attempt to head north toward the store she turned north on South Gospel Street and then turn west onto Oak Street, but was unable to make the Oak Street turn. The tractor-trailer she was driving reportedly weighed close to 30 tons at the time of the IN bridge collapse.

The first order of business in the Rhode Island General Assembly will be resolving the unfinished business of last year.

SUMMARY:

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) amends the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) to establish: Minimum performance and design standards for hours-of-service (HOS) electronic logging devices (ELDs); requirements for the mandatory use of these devices by drivers currently required to prepare HOS records of duty status (RODS); requirements concerning HOS supporting documents; and measures to address concerns about harassment resulting from the mandatory use of ELDs.

The requirements for ELDs will improve compliance with the HOS rules.
