That's a freaking riot!

Was that "VA Slow Roll"?

I even spelled out Virginia and it still made page one!

So much for all their media coverage!

Ticking off the public by impeding traffic isn't going to accomplish anything, and very likely most of these clowns don't even know what they're hoping to accomplish...they just know that they're angry.

I traveled to Ecuador often for 10 years or so. There, the truckers often protest their circumstances by piling thousands of tires on the highways near cities and setting them ablaze. That really endears the public to their predicament as well.

My feeling is usually this:. if we don't like our work, we should find something else to do, and/or endeavor to improve the matter by raising issues politely, constructively, and in the proper forum - never by inconviencing innocent bystanders.

I agree completely. To me, even things like marches on Washington, peaceful protests, or boycotts of corporations are fine. A little civil unrest is a good way to garner attention to your cause if it's done the right way. But doing things that simply aggravate the general public doesn't seem like a good strategy.

Not only that, but if you're going to stand for a cause, make sure it's something worthy that makes sense. I mean, seriously, you're afraid your privacy is going to be invaded by people hacking into your electronic logbook? Even a fifth grader would see through that.

Not to mention, the public's #1 concern with truckers is making sure we're operating safely and you want to eliminate electronic surveillance of how you're spending your time? Yeah, the public can't wait to rally behind that cause I'm sure.

Good grief.

Logbook:

A written or electronic record of a driver's duty status which must be maintained at all times. The driver records the amount of time spent driving, on-duty not driving, in the sleeper berth, or off duty. The enforcement of the Hours Of Service Rules (HOS) are based upon the entries put in a driver's logbook.

With the general state of Public Education these days, I wouldn't bank on it!
