OOIDA wants the transportation secretary to use the money from the infrastructure bill to open more truck parking lots – even if Congress left it out.


I. Today’s news with Scott Thompson

Canada will soon require truckers crossing the country to be doubly vaccinated. “Nuclear verdicts” grab the headlines, but study says smaller settlements could increase your insurance premiums. And the FBI is following a new lead in the search for Jimmy Hoffa.


II. Provide meals for 18 wheels

It is difficult to be away from family on vacation, and many truckers find themselves on the road rather than at home. But Thanksgiving dinner may still be in their future, thanks to Meals for 18 Wheels. In addition, each year, a group of truckers helps families of truckers in need. It’s called the Truckers Christmas Group – and they’re already gearing up for their annual effort.


III. Land Line Magazine Preview

Land Line Magazine is a bit like a mule in the sense that it’s business in the front and a party in the back. After reading the hard news, the staff like to lighten things up with fun features at the end of the magazine.


IV. Truck parking: OOIDA calls on federal authorities to pave more

OOIDA is asking the transportation secretary to use money from the recent infrastructure bill to open more truck parking lots – even though Congress has left it out.
