75,000 bond to be required on file by all brokers by Oct. 1st.
Maybe this will weed out some of the more unscrupulous characters moving loads?

Only time will tell folks….


If you think this will weed out the bad brokers you are mistaken. This just raises the stakes. Now brokers will say this justifies us keeping more money from the already strapped owner operator. When the O/O ARE GONE THE BAD BROKERS WILL BE GONE TOO. We the O/O are the ones they feed off from. Make no mistake.
