Re: Propane Shortage?

With the amount of tracking equipment being required overrunning the time might not be as easy as it sounds.  

Government oversight has become huge the last few years, especially when it includes the fuel and chemicals.

If there weren't enough laws already, the profuse and unbridled manufacturing of regulations by administers of the laws has been on steroids the last 15 years.

Re: Propane Shortage?

RE- examine  the  so  called  E. L. D.  -  electronic  log  device  legislation,  that was  shoved  into  ''  overdrive ''  by  the  A T A   -  and  you  will  find  the  Insurance  Institute  for  Highway  Safety  was  the  push  behind  the  curtain  -  -  -

For  some  folks  familiar with Kansas politics,   along  with  many  larger  fleet  carriers  thought that  electronic  was  a  good  fit  for  ridding  the  industry  of  falsifying  data  -   -  -

Little  thought  was  reflected  in  the  real  world  of  weather ,  fog  , blizzard ,  rain ,  Haboob / desert  dirt  storms  etc. ,  can't stop,  pull  over now,  due  to  my  start  hours  time  frame  -   -   - 

When  the  hackers  invade  the  electronic  systems ,  the  2nd  curtain  will  raise ,  while  the  shortage  of  real, honest, qualified  folks  having  left  the  arena,  due  to  the  E L D  cleansing  , the  authentic  intent  - - - 

Regulation ,  seems  to  follow  around  bad  act  examples,  with  this  being  an  example  +  &  - ,   SO  why  not  a  Governor  Executive  Order  Notwithstanding  - ?
