55mph for trucks in California.. Some people hate it, others don’t mind it.. me, I don’t mind it.. Gives me a chance to relax even. I remember when Ohio was a 55mph state for trucks & they’d pull you for running 57 or 58 at times. Not all the time but often enough where some troopers we’re that strict. I’ve gotten pulled in Ohio at that time for running 58 so I’m speaking from experience.. The crazy part about it then was the tickets didn’t go on your license, they just wanted the money.. Ohio has since changed and it’s one speed limit for everyone now.. But I remember during that time, many drivers hated running across Ohio. The split speed limits have always been a concern amongst drivers, the industry & citizens even.. In states where truck speeds are 55 but car speed limits are 65 or 70, it can cause all types of chaos on the highways.. So when you’re driving your car and wondering why trucks are going so slow in some states, pay attention to the speed limit signs because it just may be a “split speed limit” state between cars & commercial vehicles.. #trucking #truckersjourney #roadlife #truckingindustry #truckdriver #speedlimit #otr #overtheroad #america #truckinglife #lifeontheroad

MercedesBenz Future Truck 2025- these self driving trucks are a reality whether people want to believe it or not.. I sat down & watched the IAA Press Evening World Premiere & have to say it’s pretty wild! The technology is Highway AutoPilot and its pretty crazy. It handles all scenarios, traffic, pedestrians, stationary & no stationary objects, weather, can handle and share vehicle to vehicle information & sign information, meaning if a truck is ahead in a curve that’s stopped or slowed down it will relay the information to the other trucks automatically. I tweeted the link on my Twitter account if anyone is interested in seeing the conference & hearing the engineer speak. The future of trucking of trucking is evolving right before your eyes…. #trucking #truckersjourney #roadlife #journey #future #truckinglife #truckdrivers #bigtruck #semi #18wheeler

“ we do not like these eye sores in our city” … A note left on a drivers truck in Coon Rapids Minnesota about parking trucks in their town or city. This should raise an eyebrow & unite drivers even more in standing up for ourselves & our industry but unfortunately in sure it won’t. The right thing to do is stop all truck traffic from entering their town or city and allow them to purchase their food & gas from the town next to them since they don’t like trucks in their space. This type of behavior & feelings toward us as drivers are felt daily in this industry. And nothing will change or start to change until we stand up for ourselves & stand up for the industry that supports us & our families and every other citizen that benefits off trucks delivering them their goods. #trucking #truckersjourney #lifeontheroad #overtheroad #roadlife #truckinglife #journey #bigtruck #coonrapids #minnesota #america #hatetruckers

Transportation Logistics - bringing products of all types in from various places and trucking companies.. It gets sorted & loaded on other trailers, then delivered to a location near you.. The continuous cycle that usually goes uninterrupted and when it does get interrupted… you will know.. #trucking #truckersjourney #truckinglife #transportation #logistics #roadlife #journey #inmotion #truckdriver #trailer #westcoast #california #lifeontheroad #otr #overtheroad

Depending on what kind running or trucking you’re doing, not every location you pickup or drop off will have a loading dock. Sometimes you have to squeeze in these small parking lots & watch the frustration of customers trying to get in, go shopping & leave.. But they don’t mind when they see some of their favorite goodies being dropped off.. #trucking #truckersjourney #truckinglife #roadlife #bigtruck #semi #18wheeler #EastLA #california #losangeles #america

premium “vip” parking…. to get a closer parking spot at some truck stops; there’s a cost for that. This cost like $20 or something per 24hr period correct?.. I’ve never used it & never have intentions on using it personally. And to think there’s a truckers parking shortage…. #trucking #truckersjourney #truckinglife #truckerslife #roadlife #journey #truckstop #lifeontheroad #otr #inmotion #america #18wheeler #bigtruck #parking

Looks like puppet masters at Arrow Trucking are having to face the music after all. This was crazy when it happened. The collapse of Arrow Trucking Co. just days before Christmas five years ago left truckers across the country stranded without pay or a way to purchase fuel. Pielsticker who formerly led Arrow Trucking Co. suspended operations Dec. 22, 2009, stranding drivers and freight around the country without fuel or means to return home.. Former Arrow Trucking Co. CEO James Douglas Pielsticker has been indicted on bank and tax fraud charges and his former CFO has pled guilty, records show.

Federal prosecutors unsealed a 23-count indictment in a Dallas courtroom Friday naming Pielsticker, 46, as part of a $24 million conspiracy to defraud the Internal Revenue Service and a Utah bank. The indictment charges Pielsticker with 23 counts including bank fraud, tax fraud and tax evasion. Records indicate the money helped fund Pielsticker’s lavish lifestyle, including Bentley and Maserati automobiles, jewelry and to pay for his wedding. He faces up to 30 years in prison and a fine of up to $1 million on each of the 15 bank fraud counts and up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine on each of the tax fraud counts….

“(W)e couldn’t pay our bills,” said Gary Jones in a deposition — a former Arrow chief operating officer who joined the company at Christmas 2008 and within weeks came to realize the severity of the financial woes. “Every day, every day, couldn’t get trucks out of the shop. We couldn’t buy parts. We couldn’t buy tires. We couldn’t buy fuel. We couldn’t buy nothing.”

Chicken Lights.. lots of chicken lights.. If you look closely, you’ll see this trailer wrapped nicely across the top & bottom with lots & lots of lights.. Not too impressive during the sunlight hours, but when night time falls, this turns into a moving light show.. Now there’s Pros & Cons to these fancy set-ups.. The definitely look good, but also keep in mind most things that looks good can draw unwanted attention from the wrong people aka DOT… If you’re one of those drivers that push things to the limit, it may be best to just look like a plain Jane and avoid all the fancy bells & whistles.. I learned this a while ago driving a turquoise w900 with purple fenders, lots of lights @ chrome.. Ohio DOT told me “well you’re the only one who comes through here with a turquoise & purple KW so we know it’s you” lol.. So keep that in mind when start thinking about tricking & customizing your equipment.. lol #trucking #truckinglife #truckersjourney #roadlife #journey #thoughts #mindfood #chickenlights #bigtruck #lifeontheroad #overtheroad #otr #westcoast #california ##inmotion #interstate #trucklife

Victims to the hill leaving out of Salt Lake City on i80. It amazes me the people that fail to turn their AC off climbing some of these hills & end up overheating their engines. Hills & terrain can & will put anything man made to the tests #trucking #truckinglife #truckersjourney #transportation #overtheroad #otr #lifeontheroad #bigtruck #america #mountain #hill #utah #journey
