Running a bit behind on my podcasting schedule, so this is a just a quick reminder that the FMCSA has extended the commenting period on the New Proposed Hours Of Service Rules until October 21. Check out that link for my thoughts on the newly proposed rules. October 21 is just a few days, so don't delay! Go and submit your comments now! Want to hear something pathetic? There are over 3 million CDL holders in the United States, but there are only 7,500 comments submitted so far. That's pretty lame. If you care enough about trucking to listen to/read the Trucker Dump podcast/blog, then you should care enough to want to give the FMCSA a piece of your mind. And remember, if you don't submit your comments, you'll have no reason to whine and cry about the new rules in the future. And who doesn't love a good reason to complain? BONUS! One last thing; if you've never submitted a public comment like this before, be sure to check out Tips For Submitting Effective Comments so you don't sound like a raving lunatic.

TD139: Understanding The 2019 Proposed Hours-Of-Service Changes

In today’s show, I’ll explain the newly proposed hours-of-service rules so you can go leave your comments for the FMCSA. And speaking of safety issues, we’ve got a couple of truck recalls, yet another inspection blitz, more about ELD compliance, more about platooning, and you better watch out in Minnesota. We’ll also discuss the laws behind drug and alcohol screening and sleep apnea, then we’ll hit on deceptive factoring, yet another carrier shutting down and leaving drivers stranded, whether you should be paid for sleeping, and finally your chance to be a superstar on TV. Trucker Grub is going to point us to some yummy cajun food this time around. In the feedback segment, we’ll hear a tailgating story of a guy stuck in a truck sandwich, a funny story about sleep apnea, taking a large dog on the road, and what the heck is Slack? Listen to the podcast version or read the full article and the podcast show notes on AboutTruckDriving.com. This episode of Trucker Dump is sponsored ...

TD138: Being A Rental Equipment Truck Driver

In today’s episode, I’m starting a new series where I talk to truckers who have a speciality. Every now and then I’ll interview a driver who does something different than the average trucker. Today, you’ll hear from my good friend and fellow Trucker Dump Slack Group member, Shannon Holden about his job as a rental equipment hauler. But before that we’ve got lots of news to cover including more truck recalls, lots of new legislation, ELD privacy issues, and some stupid things truckers do, which means I’m pissed off through half the news segment. But we lighten the mood every now and then with an odd quarantine, seven of the best companies to work for (according to Forbes), a couple of cool new products, and a chance for a free trip to Nashville. I didn’t think we’d have a Trucker Grub segment, but an old acquaintance stops in to talk about Nancy’s Pizza in Litchfield, Illinois. You’ll never guess who it is in a million years. In the listener feedback section we’ll discuss ...

TD137: OTR vs. LTL Trucking

Well, there’s been a 2-month hiatus while I switched jobs, but it brought up a good main topic for today’s show; comparing OTR to LTL trucking. We’ve got not one, but two good places to eat for the Trucker Grub segment. Plenty of listener feedback too, including more information on the facial recognition system being used at the Canadian border, an audio comment with an oopsie from a driver (and one from myself), and of course I’m going to include some listener comments saying nice things about the podcast. Why wouldn’t I? And obviously, there’s been lots of news over the past couple of months. I couldn’t hit everything, but it might seem like it. We cover the April 12 slow roll protest, more equipment recalls, and some past and upcoming safety blitzes. Speaking of upcoming things, how about new Hours of Service, new emissions standards (oh boy), 18 year old interstate truckers, a drug & alcohol clearinghouse, and a couple of studies on ELD usage, truck parking, and the Eisen...

TD136: The Emotions Of Changing Truck Driving Jobs

Man, we’ve got a colossal show today, headlined by me sharing the emotional rollercoaster I’ve been on lately as I prepare to change truck driving jobs. But before that, we’ve got interesting stuff like Dustin’s Trucker Grub segment on some good BBQ and some long lost listener feedback from Keith, who talks about hourly pay and has a military analogy to truck training, Scot has comments on the podcast and a question about driver suicide, and Mark sent in a audio clip about why there’s so much confrontation between drivers. But of course, we’ll start out with a bajillion news stories regarding such things as truck idling regulations, concealed carry in a truck, speed limit changes, updates on the truck parking situation, and what changes our benevolent regulators would like to focus on within the trucking industry. And speaking of things that don’t work, we’ll also be discussing electric truck technologies, truck tolls, autonomous trucks, 1099 drivers, and trucker protests. A...

TD135: Trucking Recruiters... Friend Or Foe?

In today's main topic, we discuss whether trucking recruiters are friend or foe? My views on the subject might surprise you. But before that we’ve a tribute to a friend, a couple of funny videos, and DriverChrisMc will point you to some good Mexican food in the Trucker Grub segment. We’ll discuss fancy pants new trucks from Volvo and Freightliner and what’s this about a truck with no mirrors??? Lots of other topics including trucker fatalities stats, a truck parking update, facial recognition for truckers, and a major construction warning in the south. And of course, we’ll talk about the trucker who got beaten by security guards and we’ll talk about what qualifies as “adverse weather conditions” when it comes to log books. We’ll also look at some length-of-haul stats and what that means, and we’re going to figure out if it’s true that truckers are considered unskilled labor. In the feedback section, David will clarify something from the last podcast about hourly pay, BSHar...

TD134: 3 Trucking Apps Every Trucker Should Have

In today’s main topic, I’ll share 3 Trucking Apps Every Trucker Should Have and tell you why they're so awesome. But there's so much more! We’ll also be discussing news stories about truck recalls, tolls, impending new emissions standards, HOS of proposals, and whether driver pay is the key to solving every problem in the trucking industry. I’ll tell you where you’re most likely to get a moving violation, and speaking of violations, we’ll be discussing the sentence that was handed down to the Pilot executives. The tiniest of progress has been made to stop the exploitation of truck booting, so that’s good. Look out for some changes at your local Road Ranger too. I’ll point you to a couple of articles to help you curb your road rage and improve your professionalism. And we’ll finish up the news by sharing a Trucking charity and finding out about a possible exemption for narcoleptic truckers. Whaaaa?

TD133: A Trucker Gives Thanks

Truckers are an unappreciated group for sure; but there are lots of other people within the trucking industry that are even less appreciated. In today's show, I take the opportunity to thank those good folks who support us truckers. Other topics covered in the podcast are some truck recalls, some new emissions systems, a temporary truck parking fix, trucker tax changes, and I share my thoughts about the recent Washington DC trucker convoy and road blockage. We've got drivers suing carriers, a drowsy driving blood test, trucker pay raises, and a group to help suicidal or depressed truckers. The Trucker Grub segment is submitted by Nick, and in listener feedback Driver Dave talks about electronic logs, Michael talks about the new CDL restriction called "No manual transmission equipment CMV," Ab tells us a dreadful tale of a tailgating trucker, and Martin agrees with me that my company has me bent over on a particular issue.

TD132: Should We Call Out Bad Truckers?

We all see people doing stupid, inconsiderate, or just plain rude things every day. What do we do it about? Should we call these people out or should we bite our tongues? We'll discuss that in today's main topic. But the show is also jam-packed with news stories, including some recalls, some autonomous truck stuff, some good news for diabetic truckers, and more thoughts about dash cams. We’ll also talk about naughty booters and some even naughtier truckers. And I’ll tell you a couple of ways you can get your voice heard to make trucking driving a better job. We’ll also talk about what makes a good trucking company and of course, the death of a trucking icon. Driver Dave sent in a unique Trucker Grub segment and in the feedback section we hear from Ali, who has a tailgating tale, Tim is considering a switch from IT to trucking, and Anthony’s "oddest question I’ve ever received" leads to a discussion of truck driving schools.
