First they deregulated it, then they got rid of the ICC ( who used to make sure we got paid), and then they opened the borders, to flood the shit out of the market with cheap trucks. And now the government wonders why everyone is driving around with junk? After they stacked the deck against you, it's your fault? If they want to fix health care they should deregulate it, just look what it did for industry, these shippers get their freight hauled for free, and when something goes wrong you take the blame.

With all due respect Kevin, when CVSA first established a out sevice criteria, it was only a couple of pages long. Now it is 78 pages long. Every year they have to keep adding to it, just so they can tell the public one out of every five trucks is unsafe, and scare the hell out of the public, to make sure that Washington does not cut they're funding.

Butte, MT WB 2000 KW & 1995 RGN 0 vehicle, 0 driver not even a warning other than "have a safe trip". I should have stopped at the casino or bought a lottery ticket instead of driving, I'm sure all my luck is used up now for a loooooong time.

If you think what the small companies have to say on ANY subject put in front of the government, then you are highly dilussional!!! Government is working to force out the small business and only have conglomerates running everything! We never see a photo op with an O/O! Not a single one that I have seen. When government wants to make regulations they look to the big companies not the small! That's just my oppinion!

It's a good feeling when you get a "FAIR INSPECTION". I have seen some inspectors that cheat in order to make their quota, by doing stuff like tugging extra hard on a airline, in order to loosen a glad hand,and create a air leak.

I agree with all the above but I was able to snag some of the best loads of the year this week. If there was a blitz every week, the cut rate, trashed trucks, would either have to raise there rate or quite. Either way it would be easier to compete with good equipment and do more good for safety than all the stupid ELD regs etc.
