LLN (5/25/22) – If you hate speed limiters, you may have already let FMCSA officials know what you think. Emotional reactions are natural, but facts help when you’re making a point. Andrew King of the OOIDA Foundation breaks down what research says about speed limiters. Also, Memorial Day weekend will be a busy one for owner-operators. Stephen Petit with DAT talks about the increase of seasonal freight that’s driving up the number of loads. And OOIDA has been supporting a bill that would eliminate truckers’ exemption from the Fair Labor Standards Act. But now, a very powerful set of interests is objecting to the idea.
