Today’s date is 10/26/2005
Today is a very historic day for the world; reason
being Scottsdale, Arizona has approved a vote which will put cameras on the
Scottsdale local freeway system which will take a picture of a vehicle going
11 mph over the posted speed limit. The picture will take down your license
plate number and then send you a ticket in the mail courtesy of the
Scottsdale City Police Department.
Approximately 5% of small businesses employing fewer
than 20 employees are in the field of transportation which includes taxi
drivers, bus drivers, tractor trailer drivers and every other commercial
driver according to Business Essentials ;( Ebert, R & Griffin, R 2005
This 5% is already being bombarded with harassment from
every governmental agency and non governmental agency such as the
neighborhood kids are throwing beer bottles at truck driver stopping in
front of the truck or you name it’s happening to commercial drivers.
Just about every truck driver I talked to is looking
for a way to get out from behind the steering wheel; fuel cost dishonest
employers and a simple lack of respect for the profession from the community
and lack of support programs for the everyday truck driver.
truck drivers of this country do not really have an advocate and I’m not
being paid to be one so I must volunteer my voice to this precious
profession and it’s survival to prevent extinction of the very unique field
of work which can only be interpreted to another person through driving in a
Semi truck 48 States year round non stop to work for a truck that you will
be gypped out of at the end of a 3 year lease and to find out fuel prices
went through the roof and your profit margin is very limited.
With all this said
what in the world is the Scottsdale voters
thinking by approving this decision to take pictures of truck drivers on
duty and off duty and make them fight a ticket in court
related to their profession and lively hood when is this pin the tail on the
donkey going to stop? The American truck driver is currently the donkey and
the American rich spoiled voter is pinning several sledgehammer donkey tails
on the commercial drivers of America in order to make a camera company
working in Scottsdale Arizona $800,000 richer to install camera’s on the
freeway’s which is going to stall your freight going to the grocery in more
way’s than one.
These are a few points of interest that the voter’s of
Scottsdale Arizona should have considered before approving the new law which
will use technology against the driver instead of helping the driver.
