I also am in the trucking industry, managing the maintenance and repair of over 220 semi's, all from my computer and phone. When I'm in my 4 wheeler(I also posess a CDL), I constantly see reasons why we should have regulations similar to those in the commercial traffic realm. Many drivers/cars should be put "out of service" until the proper level of safety is attained. All states should have mandatory yearly checks for POI(inusrance) and the safety condition of the automobile. I dislike gov't over-regulation, but this is an area that is severely under-regulated.
