    To say that participation in FMCSA’s under-21 pilot program has been lackluster would be an understatement. We’ll have analysis of the new data, as well as details on the road to reopen the Key Bridge.

We’ll wrap up with musing over the eclipse, another nuclear verdict and a possible connection between automatic transmissions and parking lot speeding.

Then, Brent Hutto of Truckstop says there are signs of new life on the spot market.
