3G cellphone tech that many truckers depend on will stop working in the near future. We’ll tell you why that is and what to do. Also, more on winter prep.
I. Today’s news with Terry Scruton
CARB does something truckers might actually like, a lawsuit about truck-only tolls and more – it’s today’s big news in trucking.
II. 3G cellphone tech is ticking toward the end

III. More winter prep advice
Prepping your engine for winter is a process that involves a lot of moving parts – literally. We continue our series about getting your truck ready for the cold.
IV. Cargo theft in the Great White North
