LLN (5/13/22) – Marty Ellis is hearing about driver pay – or more precisely, the lack of compensation for much of truckers’ on-duty time; and truckers are telling him what they think of the speed limiter proposal. Also, an idea for a domestic source of natural rubber is picking up traction. Goodyear recently announced a partnership to develop a source of natural rubber from a specific species of dandelion. And it’s not every day you ask an officer to give you a ticket, but there are circumstances where you might want to. Jeff McConnell and James Mennella of Road Law explain that, then offer up a gentle reminder to think before you pay off any ticket.
