We kick off a new era of the Trucker Dump Podcast today where I attempt to take the podcast to a weekly schedule. Hey! Quit laughing!
In this week's news we've got three recalls, both happy and unhappy Freedom Convoyers, the dates for this year's Brake Safety Week, a new FMCSA director on the way, the challenges of enforcing speed limiters, the Top 100 carrier list, carrier acquisitions, a revoked ELD, the logistics of war, and your chance to help the FMCSA define brokers.
Trucker Grub takes us to some good home cooking on I-35 in Missouri, and of course, listener feedback from you!
