In this week’s show, we discuss more about AB5, drug testing, overtime pay, Tesla trucks, 60-ft trailers, new trucking services, apps, and truck stops, and unfortunately a crap-ton of recalls. On the plus side, trucker pay has gone up. So there’s that.
In the feedback section, listeners have follow-up on the rising Pennsylvania toll rates and the new parking program and the ParkUnload app.
