    Thats a bunch of bullpuckey... its not cause of how fast the trucks went its because of freight rates...bad decision on management..

    Its already starting seriously...once you hit your max csa points allowed your gone...ive been hearing it for a long time too but now they are starting to use it... just like the BMI index from the CDC but i dont know if they ever started using that formula...

    I just dont think theres going to be a mass wipe out of drivers.You might here about so and so's brothers friend sisters husband lost his cdl. But not much more than that kinda stuff.

    I just cant see anything goverment/csa what ever helping out by takeing a large number of poor drivers off the road and makeing my pay go up! Why would they do that,seems there job is to bring us down.

    I've had my doors blown off many times by Giltner and Carter Express trucks.

    Now, I figure that that if they allow the trucks to run that fast, they're going to expect you to run the truck that fast - all the time. Just something to think about...
