TD167: Autonomous Trucks and Cops, Cummin's Hydrogen Engine, Speed Traps, & More Trucker Dump - A Trucking Podcast

    • Careers

In today’s show, we discuss lots of new stuff: Cummins’ new hydrogen engine, new money for driver training, a new biodiesel, a new speed trap, new road closures and toll increases, and a first-ever demonstration of an autonomous vehicle being pulled over by the fuzz. Oh, and of course, truckers have found a new thing to be pissed off about the speed limiter proposal.
