Question 2 and 3: Why worry about these, big governemtn will regulate it as they see fit. Besides we dont have enough clout to change anything.

All the rest, I will have to consult my crystal ball. Oops, its out of order at the moment.

*Driver Shortage This shortage only exists in the minds of large fleet CEO's who want to flood the labor market with "supply" to decrease "demand" & keep wages suppressed.
*HOS Regulation

*CSA Scores

*Pricing Competitiveness

EPA / CARB requirements. The newest trucks are needlessly complicated, terribly unreliable & way overpriced.

You can only have one poll per thread, this would have required 8 polls.

1. Driver Shortage (see question 4)

2. Opposition (which is odd given that electronics happen to be my hobby and passion, but it's a long story)

3. No, but they probably will anyway

4. Equipment and equipment maintenance (don't even get me started on this one, it's a very sensitive topic for me - again, it's a long story)

5. Remaining the same

6. Increasing

7. Decreasing (see question 1)

8. Decreasing (again, see question 1)
