    How about a increase in gas taxes? Then when everyone goes in to have their license renewed they must take a weekend long drivers education course that includes how to drive safely around big trucks and other drivers as well. Should you be ticketed for unsafe driving, speeding etc..after that course, the fines will be double. As will the points on your license. As for the increase in carrier and broker fees, screw that, how about some road tax fairness?

    Hmm, need some coffee. Attitude adjustment under way.

    25% equals 9 bucks for a 1 truck operation.

    25% makes a way better headline than 9 bucks.

    Extra training is a good idea. Internet technology would allow them to take the course at home.

    I'm still stumped on the true or false question. Apparently true from the article but no one will know until they renew and it's there.

    This wasn't asked but:

    Am I surprised? No.

    Do I like it? No.

    Will it bother me? No. Not nearly as much as DEF going up 25% per year and things like that.

    Anyone paid out of pocket for a shower at a Mega lately? I paid $18.50? at a Loves the other day. Insane. Mind boggling. Absolute robbery for 15 minutes of hot water.

    It’s starts small.
    No one throws a fit over $9.
    Unless… it’s dinner which cost me $26.51 last night where it use to be $15.
    Then it’s inflation/price gouging.
