TDMST Weekly Round-Up: 2021.09.18

This is the TDMST Weekly Round-Up of news affecting professional truck drivers, written by Vicki Simons for the week ending September 18, 2021.

We welcome your comments, thoughts and feedback on the items of your choice below.

 

TDMST Weekly Round-Up

1. Regarding COVID-19:

Article II of The Constitution of the United States clearly describes that "executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America" and exactly what that entails.

Nowhere does the Constitution grant the President power to make Executive Orders that demand compliance of states and the people regarding their medical decisions!

In fact, in the "Bill of Rights," here's what the Fourth Amendment states:

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

You may also want to read:
  • 18 U.S. Code § 242 - Deprivation of rights under color of law

  • 42 U.S. Code § 2000a - Prohibition against discrimination or segregation in places of public accommodation

  • 42 U.S. Code § 2000a–1 - Prohibition against discrimination or segregation required by any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, rule or order of a State or State agency

If you want proof of some of the devastating effects of what the CV jab is doing to people (adverse events and deaths), I suggest you look at:

  • What is happening in Israel, the most vaccinated country in the world;

  • The very limited information that is being published on the passive Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), which is made easier to understand, courtesy of OpenVaers.com; and

  • Information posted by mRNA Death Toll on Telegram.

Once a poison death shot is injected in your body, some of the effects may be irreversible, including stroke, heart damage, what follows the formation of blood clots (including micro-blood clots), etc.

Before you take the jab, consider very carefully if your health and your life are more important to you than a job or income.

Here are some of the most recent articles on this topic:

One other thing: If you would like to learn more about what The Constitution of the United States says and means, I highly recommend the 6-part series: "The Constitution is the Solution."

 

2. Regarding NTDAW, CPAP, and accidents:

National Truck Driver Appreciation Week (NTDAW)

Please bear in mind that some of the ways in which businesses and people "appreciate" truckers may be going on all month, not just for one week.


CPAP


Accidents

Please seek to understand what may have led up to these accidents, so that you do not get into the same set-up.

 

3. Regarding electric vehicles, autonomous vehicles, and fuel:

Electric vehicles

Please remember that until vehicles somehow have the ability to recharge themselves, there will always be a need for them to take on additional fuel or recharge themselves.

Some people are of the opinion that electric vehicles aren't as environmentally-friendly as folks would like to make them out to be.

Please be exceedingly careful before you put all of your "eggs" in the electric vehicle "basket" (so to speak).


Autonomous vehicles

I totally oppose autonomous, driverless, and self-driving commercial motor vehicles that share roads with the motoring public, but am sharing these articles with you as a courtesy.


Fuel

 

4. Regarding NTSB, roads, staged accidents, and insurance:

National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB)

What U.S. National Transportation Safety Board Chairman Jennifer Homendy recently shared sounds reasonable, about considering "the whole system as the reason for highway crashes rather than placing the blame on highway travelers alone."

But there are at least two red flags:

"If we are going to get to zero, we will have to do something different," she said.

News flash, Ms. Homendy: We're never going to get to "zero" crashes, ever, because vehicles are machines and sometimes machines break down.

"... manufacturers who design vehicles that can exceed 100 miles per hour or that have no speed limiters."

News flash, Ms. Homendy: While many commercial motor vehicles are already governed, if you think that you're going to put speed limiters on the rest of the vehicles on the road today, I think you'll be in for a fight.


Roads

Please be aware of road closures and detours.


Staged accidents

I am so glad that the extent of this scam is being revealed!


Insurance

 

5. Regarding recruiting, pay, rates, taxes, tolls, and VMT:

Recruiting

Please be aware of the information shared in these articles, especially if you're looking to make a switch as a driver.


Pay

The amount of money one earns as a trucker is only part of the equation, so please do your due diligence before you hire on.


Rates


Taxes


Tolls

  • Free Rides Cost Pennsylvania Turnpike $104M

    Let me share with you an experience that my husband Mike and I had in Florida this past June regarding a "toll-by-plate" license plate camera system:

    We traveled a little tiny section of a toll road in the greater Tampa area -- and didn't receive the toll notice in the mail for almost two months!


VMT

 

6. Regarding drugs, smuggling, and inspections:

Drugs

Never, ever agree to haul illegal drugs in your truck, no matter how much you are promised.


Smuggling

Never, ever agree to haul people in your trailer -- treating them like animals or cargo -- no matter how much of an incentive is offered.


Inspections

 

7. Regarding technology, ELDs, aerodynamics, batteries, and tires:

8. Regarding capacity, Black Friday, and maintenance:

9. Regarding parking, repairs, trailers, and emissions:

10. Regarding AB5, truckers, shortage, supply chain, and same day delivery:

Truckers


Shortage

There's a very big need for the negatives in trucking to be addressed and fixed!


Supply chain


Same day delivery

I foresee the day when this may happen in trucking, too!

 

11. Regarding weather and economy:

12. Regarding awards and recognition:

Congratulations to everyone who was nominated for or won a trucking award!

 

My husband Mike and I wish you -- and all professional truck drivers -- safe travels and lots of money saving opportunities on the road.
