    Angry Black Smoke Matters !!!

    just ran across this, catchy title for a growing sentiment in this profession. ELD's are causing a lot of problems, and I mean a lot!

    As long as they don't mess with traffic I'm all for them protesting. Just don't mess with the public going about their day. If they mess up traffic they will lose.

    I remember many years ago truckers slowing down traffic to protest fuel prices. They didn't win any fans with that move.

    I agree, and especially from a safety standpoint. the parking problem for guys out of hours is crazy, all the truckstops are full over capacity with parking on the sides of the highway adjacent. it never was like that for years as people were ticketed to prevent it, but if you can't drive and there's no place to go, what other choice is there?

    A few years ago, they blocked entrance into the Port of Miami protesting low pay for independants...... that didn't go over so well.
