Why a new trucking regulation is driving up the cost of produce
from Chicago Tribune
Shoppers could see grocery prices rise because of a new federal mandate requiring most long-distance truckers to use electronic logging devices to keep track of their time spent driving. Some truckers are experiencing difficulties and delays as they switch from paper logbooks to the devices, which plug into a truck's engine. Proponents argue the devices, which have been required for most truckers since Dec. 18, keep drivers more honest about their driving time and therefore make the highways safer.
