Driver community ONE20 hits the road
LOUISVILLE.

Dash Cam of the Week: Brothers in crime
While common driving mistakes are a routine nuisance and often lead to real problems, most of the idiocy truckers see on the highways are rooted in carelessness, maybe rudeness, and sometimes just plain meanness.

Slow and steady: How to grow a small fleet
What better icon of independence and entrepreneurship is there than the American trucker, the rugged individualist living life on his or her own terms, and forging a business from a passion?

Trucking regs in limbo: What will emerge, and when?
While some trucking regulations will get a second look under the Trump administration’s regulatory freeze—and some of these might see substantial revision, or even be dropped altogether—major initiatives such as the electronic logging device mandate will likely be implemented on schedule, says a former FMCSA administrator.
February spike in trucking jobs doesn't offset January decline
The good news is trucking posted a gain of more than 10,000 jobs in February. The bad news is the large increase doesn’t make up for the substantial downward revision to January’s total: The latest government update shows a loss of 14,400 jobs for the first month of the year. This comes after a six-month run up to a record high to close 2016.
Dash Cam of the Week: Free Beer Friday
The staff here couldn’t find the police report that goes along with this Dash Cam of the Week, but we bet it’s a doozy. After all, it’s not every day that a trooper gets a truckload of beer dumped on him.

It’s not that the controversial restart provisions in the July 2013 hours of service rule were bad, they just didn’t provide a significant improvement over the previous (and now proven effective) weekly reset—so they’re officially off the books, according to information posted Thursday by the FMCSA. The good news: Agency research confirmed that the 34-hour restart provides drivers the opportunity for needed sleep time and sleep quality.

No 'net benefit' to overnight restart, FMCSA concedes
The Congressionally mandated review of 2013 changes to truck driver hours of service requirements has turned up no evidence that the restart provisions are, overall, beneficial. The tip comes from none other than the DOT's Office of the Inspector General. Trucking interests welcomed the study's conclusion, while highway safety groups called it "junk science."
Diesel prices holding near first-of-the-year levels
