    FMCSA Denies ATA Petition Regarding Truck Tire Inflation Rules
    September 18, 2017

    http://www.truckinginfo.com/news/st...ion-regarding-truck-tire-inflation-rules.aspx

    "FMCSA said it agreed with ATA that proper measurement of tire inflation pressure during a roadside inspection is dependent on many factors that are difficult to apply consistently and uniformly, but it did not think eliminating the problem section of the rules was the answer.

    Instead, FMCSA said it will work with CVSA's Vehicle Committee to ensure roadside inspection officials are properly trained and aware of established regulatory guidance."

    "Used truck prices tumbled throughout 2016. The average retail price of three- to five-year-old tractors plunged from $73,300 in January 2016 to $53,900 in December, according to J.D. Power Valuation Services.

    Though prices stabilized in the first half of 2017 – holding near $60,000 through June – that modest rebound might be only a calm before the storm. Tractors sold in 2014 and 2015 are expected to flood the market in numbers that..."

    Don't exaggerate. Wages are only a portion (80% +/-) of Compensation. On the other hand, rates don't reflect 100% of the revenue stream...

    Regardless, compensation increases always lag behind rate increases. They have to because they are only a portion of costs. 47.5% of revenue for FY 2017, for some perspective. Factor that into your figures too, then tell us what you think.
