LLN (8/30/22) – In trucking, some topics never seem to go away; near the top of that list of “forever topics” sits the hours of service. We’ll discuss some recent questions about that and other topics. Also, there are advantages to going with synthetic oils. Some are related to viscosity. Others are related to fuel economy. Shawn Whitacre of Chevron joins us to break down synthetics and all that comes along with using them. And a new Michigan law is designed to pave the way for autonomous vehicle roadways in the state. Meanwhile, California is considering a plan to make deer – and other wildlife – cross roads at actual deer crossings.
