    I would like to see an abolishment of anti-trucker legislation (idling laws), no difference between 4 wheeler and 18 wheeler speed limits, multi brokering loads illegalized, one law nationwide/one standard for all states to adhere to for requirements/permits etc., world peace, "can't we all just get along", and no more democratic presidents.

    More concessions and lots of freebies for truckers (on and off the net), as well as all free load boards (make the brokers pay a monthly fee, not the truckers), and places that cater to the truckers needs first.

    Not being able to idle at a traffic intersection (I'm thinking of California) is beyond stupid. Regulations like that should be eradicated nationwide. More fuel is burned by stooping and starting than by idling. And who is the idiot that times those lights anyway?!? :biggrin_25516::biggrin_25510:

    More flexibility in the HOS like, well, the ability to use common sense instead of a clock to know when you're able to drive 'safely'.

    Free wireless net at all truckstops, a young hot female naked in the sleeper with me now, fuel surcharges that are based off fuel prices from 2009, not 1989, less light loads in high winds and snow, less angry drivers on the c.b, parking spaces for long nose trucks, not cabovers, and a stunt double to get me drinks and snacks while iam driveing........ this could go for days:biggrin_2551:

    How About A

    "Truckers Better Business Bureau" ?
    Which "All " Truckers can Fight for Their Rights? Instead of taking the Blunt All the time? And Can't do nothing about it.

    WOULD THAT WORK?
