Facing Reality about CSA 2010, Make The Best of It
I don't particular like some of the stuff that will be used. "Deciding if a driver has too much to read, too many dvd's, etc and therefor is likely to be not getting enough rest".....However, I do think that after all the pain and suffering and many older drivers quit (who don't like the change and don't have to drive), and other drivers get fired, (too many violations for either safety or insurance)freight rates will have to go up and drivers will have to be paid more. My theory good companies with good ratings paying to keep good drivers will do well. Bad drivers and companies will have to cease to exist. Hopefully I am right.
