The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration has ordered that a New York trucking company pay a driver $45,000 after he was fired for reporting mechanical safety problems.
In 2011, the trucker began working for Brindi Trailer Sales and Services Inc. of Merridale, a for-hire interstate carrier with one tractor-trailer. Soon after, he requested owner Robert Urbina Brindi repair the truck, including fixing ineffective brakes, steering problems, broken turn signals, leaks and a cracked windshield.
In February 2012, after Brindi refused to correct the issues, the driver contacted the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. The trucker was fired after PDOT put the truck out of service for 16 violations.
OSHA determined he had violated the anti-discrimination provisions of the Surface Transportation Assistance Act Jan. 21. It ordered him to compensate the trucker ... and expunge his employment record.

Truckers and other drivers traveling through Nebraska this weekend will start paying more tax during fuel stops.
The state’s fuel tax now is 25.6 cents per gallon. The tax rate includes a fixed component set at 10.3 cents. The state Department of Roads claims 7.5 cents per gallon of the fixed rate while cities and counties get 2.8 cents.
A new law in effect Friday, Jan. 1, will raise the fixed rate by 1.5 cents.

Did you know smoking is the leading cause of preventable deaths in the United States with over 480,000 deaths every year from tobacco use and exposure to secondhand smoke? While the number of people who smoke has declined over the recent decades, over 18% of the American population still smokes on a regular basis.
Compared to the general adult population, commercial truck drivers tend to live a more unhealthy lifestyle. The job requires long hours, high stress, and physical and mental focus. Over 50 percent of commercial drivers smoke cigarettes and only 8 percent exercise regularly.
This accounts for the average life expectancy for a commercial truck driver to be 61 years old.
The New Year is right around the corner and it is the perfect time to start afresh. Millions of people set resolutions every year so why not be one of those people. The time to quit smoking is now.
The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association is calling for leading lawmakers at the Michigan statehouse to reject an effort to authorize toll taxes as an option to get road and bridge work done in the state.
Mike Matousek, OOIDA director of state legislative affairs, cautions that the legislation would authorize the creation of toll roads throughout the state with little to no oversight.
He also alerted lawmakers to unintended consequences that would result.
“As it relates to trucking, truck drivers will divert to toll-free routes that are less capable of supporting heavy vehicles and undermine the viability of a toll project when actual revenue generated is far less than anticipated.
“Economically, tolls are simply another tax – in addition to existing federal, state, and local fuel taxes, registration fees, etc. – that is bad for truckers, bad for taxpayers, and ultimately bad for Michigan.”
