– Control trucking, you control every part of this country, and as 1/5th of the GDP, the economy of every part of this country. WARNING AND HEADS UP ON COMING DICTATORIAL AND TOTAL CONTROL OF OVER THE ROAD TRUCKING, MONITORED IN REAL TIME:
Steve, thought your readers would like to know about this. Trucking as a whole is a mess, but about to get really bad. On dec 18 2017 a mandate goes into effect called the ELD or electronic logging device mandate. Put together under the Map21 plan. Doesnt sound bad, we all go paperless, woohoo.
Well there is more to it. Today I spoke with a fmcsa enforcement agent, asking some questions, he boldly stated that this “was about tracking”, and pointed me to some info. As an owner I have been looking into this more deeply. This mandate, requires all trucks, with only 4 clear exceptions, to install a device to electronically keep drivers hours of service. The scary part is, this device Must be certified by fmcsa, Must be registered with fmcsa, Must be hard wired into the trucks ECM ( engine computer) allowing access to telemetry, Must have internal GPS, Must identify driver and his/her last 7 days + current days hours of service including shipper and commodity and Must be accessible on demand by fmcsa agents by telmetrics or bluetooth. Plus more.
In other words, they will be electronically tracking every truck. Knowing company, unit, driver, location, speed, direction, shipper, and commodity, In Real Time
All this to keep us from “cheating” on our logs?
I call BS.
I said before, trucks are the red blood cells of the american body, everthing moves by truck, Everything. Control trucking, you control every part of this country, and as 1/5th of the GDP, the economy of every part of this country.
The government will have absolute tyranical control of the transport of goods when this kicks in. And it is going to have an affect on everyone, access to goods, prices, ect.
They got control of banking, healthcare, now the supply lines, whats next?
Prep now, why you can.
Good luck to you all, and God bless

Some faceless moron or algorithm can veto supplies to a community by re-allocation based on politics.”
