Over Drive Email states that 60% of the trucks are not compliant on the ELD rule yet! Really? So if 60% park our trucks on December 18, 2017 Do you think the FMCSA would notice? I'm Ready! Anybody want to come along?

I agree. It seems the only option left on the table,is the one of force. If your going to go broke, you might as well do it on your own terms. Its time for us to show Washington that the ATA does not speak for us.

We are at a critical crossroads right now. This can either be like the Boston tea party, or the Bataan Death march. If we do nothing, we will slowly go broke, and the megga carriers will end up with our customers, which is how they planned it....... If we shut down and refuse to comply, Washington will be forced to break their alliance with the ATA..... They have already showed signs of weakness by giving out all these exemptions, to try and ease capacity concerns. The economy is on fire right now, and I suggest we take advantage of that opertunity, and use it against them.

I say if you have one (ELD) fill up the back lot of every scale you come to demanding to be inspected. Or run out of hours ofn the scale.
