Segment 2

A new survey says ELDs fail on safety and economics in trucking. Controversy continues to follow the topic of electronic logging devices. Now required in most trucks, the devices are supposed to track hours of service. The OOIDA Foundation wanted to see how they are fitting into the industry. Mark Reddig discusses what they found – and some other topics – with Andrew King of the foundation.

Segment 3

Which trucking issues are the priorities for our representatives in Washington, D.C.? And how does the change of leadership in the U.S. House of Representatives affect that? Mary McKenna covers that and more with Jami Jones and Mark Schremmer of the Land Line Magazine staff.

Segment 4

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance, or CVSA, says a labeling requirement for rear impact guards is not worth enforcing. Mark Reddig covers that – plus some recent meetings with Congressional offices – with OOIDA Director of Safety And Security Operations Doug Morris.
