How do you propose to get the shippers and receivers to not take advantage of drivers? The clock doesn’t necessarily stop on the HOS while the driver waits. That means he isn’t getting miles which is how most drivers are paid. They are not paid by the hour.
I understand how drivers are paid. When markets are allowed to function, problems are resolved. What about doctors’ waiting rooms. I don’t get paid for waiting. Should I demand regulations and more bureaucrats so I can have more regulation to make me “happy” (it won’t make any difference in waiting times)?
