Many issues face the professional truck drivers represented by the Owner-Operators Independent Drivers Association.
Because of that and also because the greatest strength of OOIDA is its informed and vocal membership, the OOIDA Foundation has published white papers and one-pagers on key topics facing the professional trucking industry.
A recent white paper is titled The Challenges of Automated Vehicles in the Trucking Industry. You may download the 20-page PDF to read and study or choose another of dozens of topics.
The one-pagers address topics such as Truck Driver Shortage, The Trucker’s Perspective of Autonomous Trucks, and The Dangers of Lane Restrictions. There are more than 20 one-pager topics listed.
