OOIDA has fought for years for greater transparency in broker and motor carrier contracts, and the pandemic has highlighted why the lack of it is a problem.


I. Today’s news with Terry Scruton

The U.S. Supreme Court tosses out the convictions in the New Jersey bridge scandal; the man behind the Arrow Truck shutdown moves from prison to house arrest; and a California man gives new meaning to the term “drinking and driving” – it’s today’s news in trucking.

II. Get that collision off your record

The FMCSA has expanded a program designed to help truckers if they have a collision on their record that was not their fault; also, a new app is designed to help truckers during disasters.

III. Colorado, South Dakota speed limits

Colorado’s governor has signed bills addressing some highway speed limits and fees for overweight permits, while variable speed limits are considered for some South Dakota roads.

For years now, OOIDA has fought for greater transparency between brokers and motor carriers. And the pandemic has highlighted why the lack of it is a problem. I’ll discuss the situation with OOIDA Director of Safety and Security Operations Doug Morris and Jami Jones, managing editor of Land Line Magazine.
