What makes you so sure we won't see something like this?.... The L/T ratio's have been skyrocketing ever since December, and brokers are constantly posting loads under the forum section now, hoping to find some relief.

It won't ever happen in the states.

That's what they said last time. And we had three of them, and it started in South America last time as well. History generally repeats itself. Human beings are pretty much all alike, they all have a breaking point. What was the pattern of behavior leading up to this? Low morell, high turnover, frustration, and anger? Do these same conditions exist here in the states? First the ELD, and now the denham amendment? Where is the breaking point? The Canadian truckers had no problem shutting the ports down a couple years back, and now its Brazil. What makes us any different?

We could make a huge difference if the independents and smaller companies shut down. The mega carriers cannot handle it all. Eld's, HOS, we could get it fixed. A little planning and we would not only survive, but thrive.
