TDMST Weekly Round-Up: 2021.10.16

This is the TDMST Weekly Round-Up of news affecting professional truck drivers, written by Vicki Simons for the week ending October 16, 2021.

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

 

TDMST Weekly Round-Up

1. Regarding supply chain and ports:

There are a lot of moving parts going on in the U.S. economy right now, including the supply chain, containers, ports, employment, vaxxine requirements under the guise of law, etc.

Just remember that as long as there are people who need things, there will always be a need to transport those things from the manufacturers to the people (perhaps through a number of steps).

The Creator of the universe gave you a number of body systems to help you stay well and healthy. Over the centuries, mankind has figured out how to use natural products and certain common sense actions to maintain vibrant health.

Beware of -- and I dare say, avoid -- potentially toxic substances and procedures that can irreversibly alter or destroy your health.

Supply chain


Ports

 

2. Regarding shipping and economy:

3. Regarding AB5, lawsuit, testing, and licenses:

AB5


Lawsuit


Testing


Licenses

 

4. Regarding debt and COVID-19:

Debt

No one can continue to expand the use of credit and debt forever.

Sooner or later, the chickens will come home to roost.


COVID-19

Remember that so-called "mandates" are not the same thing as "law."

I recently learned from a document from the U.S. Department of the Treasury that monies to be disbursed under the "American Rescue Plan Act" includes this requirement:

Recipient also agrees to comply with all other applicable federal statutes, regulations, and executive orders, and Recipient shall provide for such compliance by other parties in any agreements it enters into with other parties relating to this award.

If you have qualified for ARPA funds, be aware that so-called "Executive Orders" are not the law, that they may be a moving target, and may include procedures that will harm human health and help to destroy the economy.

If I were listed as a potential recipient and I learned about this requirement, I would refuse the money or return it.

Remember regarding government-issued money:
"With the shekels come the shackles."

 

5. Regarding drugs, smuggling, illegal, and hitchhiker:

Drugs

Never agree to haul illegal drugs, no matter how much you've been promised.


Smuggling

Never, ever haul human beings as if they were cargo!


Illegal

If people loved their neighbors as they loved themselves, this kind of thing would not happen.


Hitchhiker

What is the solution for this?

If truckers put a sign on their truck to alert the trucker if there is a hitchhiker, this may be a set-up for armed robbery.

It seems to me that the only solution is a multi-camera dash cam set up where the driver can -- from his/her truck cab -- literally see all the way around his/her rig.

 

6. Regarding accident, inspections, safety, staged, and hazmat:

Accident

Please review the kinds of accidents listed below so that you are not involved in the same situations.


Inspections

Always be ready for inspection and you'll never be caught off-guard.


Safety


Staged


Hazmat

 

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

Electric vehicles


Fuel


Autonomous vehicles

I totally oppose autonomous, self-driving or driverless trucks -- especially commercial motor vehicles that share the roads with the motoring public.

However, I share these articles as a courtesy to keep you informed.

 

8. Regarding emissions, maintenance, and predictions:

Emissions


Maintenance


Predictions

 

9. Regarding insurance, last mile, parking, and quotas:

Insurance


Last mile


Parking


Quotas

 

10. Regarding pay, lottery, labor, employment, shortage, and status:

Pay


Lottery

Let's hope the monies are spent wisely.


Labor


Employment


Shortage


Status

 

11. Regarding technology, tires, and weather:

Technology


Tires


Weather

 

12. Regarding awards:

Congratulations to all of those who have been nominated for or have received an award for recognition or achievement!

 

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