Be careful. Be very, very careful.


Well, this Labor Day weekend, will apparently mark the beginning of 100 Mexican trucking companies and their piece of shit trucks and their unregulated drivers having full access to any road in America. Like I-35 isn't scary enough? This is yet another example of laws and regulations being applied selectively: that would be, against American citizens. American truckers are routinely stopped by the highway patrol. Their trucks are weighed, tires and brakes checked. Their records are reviewed to make sure they have not exceeded the allowed driving time. And now, American truckers will still be subject to this regulation, but not the Mexican trucks and truckers. They will be free to cross America, on any road, in a truck of any condition, driven by drivers who may or may not be able to read signs in English, or know how to drive in the United States, and without any limitation whatsoever on the number of hours they may drive. Shall I even mention the whole "do they have insurance?" aspect?

If you have been unaware of this issue, that some of us have been fighting for ages, now is the time to get on the phone to your elected representatives and tell them what you think about it.
