LLN (3/24/21) – Will you have to have a COVID-19 vaccination to get a medical card? Is the government going to shut down 1999 and older trucks? Those are some of the rumors going around right now in trucking. But the thing about rumors is some are true and some are false. Our panel of experts separate fact from fiction. Also, DAT gets asked all the time whether it’s a good time to buy a truck. We’ll cover that – and take a look at how trends in freight and rates can help answer that question. And Congress is looking at some infrastructure issues – and truck parking is playing a big role in the conversation. So is the tide of support turning in favor of a fix?
