Electronic log devices are bullshit!

I think ELD's are B.S. and a way to police a problem of the government's making!

There was a question being posed by Road dog trucking on Sirius as to whether the device is considered a management tool or a safety tool? I think its neither!

Trucking companies don't give a shit about safety or compliance! They only care about profits, the bottom line! Hence the existence of the device itself.

It is a regulatory compliance device a.k.a the truck drivers personal police!

There never would have been a need for such a device had our government and all the useless trucking associations in existence addressed the one and only true grievance the truck driver has had since forever. WAGES!!!

Why do you think we are all working 12+ hours a day? It sure as hell ain't because we love trucking!

Could it be because trucking pays shit? Bingo, you crayon eating mf's

The Government and the industry have never done a thing to address the wage issue.

They have destroyed the industry with their rules and regulations and this device is going to be the nail in the coffin and I for one can't wait!!!

A major driver shortage is on its way! Just in time for autonomous trucking!

I am the owner and sole operator of this site!

It is my hope that this site can become something special to the common truck driver.

A place where we can blog about our experiences as well as discuss topics important to us, such as the fact the we have been continually getting screwed over by our government and the industry as a whole.
