be the benefit that keeps equipment moving,” Burg said. “The government is supposed to be overseeing what we’re doing, and if we’re doing it, that’s a less burdensome operation.” Burg said that to impose wireless


inspection service costs on safe carriers, however, is arguably unfair and unnecessary. “When you look at these technologies,


basically they level the playing field. It takes your average driver and makes them exceptional,” he said. “If you have a technology that looks at tire pressure, and


you’ve got one driver that walks around his truck, and one that doesn’t, the technology just took care of the problem of the guy that doesn’t walk around his truck. “So if you have a small fleet where they


thrive on dedication and pride and doing their job, it’s going to be tough for them. They’re going to be asking why they should invest in this technology when I’m doing it already myself, just because somebody else might not be.” What about a much discussed hole in the

CSA system, that the vast majority of carriers in the database have too few inspections? Wouldn’t the wireless roadside system, as advertised, be the answer? “I don’t know if it’s good or bad. If FMCSA


doesn’t get their arms around the anomalies — the issues that we have as an industry, the things that don’t meet the commonsense smell test — then we’re going to lose the opportunity to really improve the industry,” Burg said. “What we don’t want is for CSA to become a numbers game, where we’re focusing on the numbers and we’re missing the big picture of investing in true safety- based processes and technologies. That’s what we can’t forget. If all I care about is playing not to lose, then I have no chance to win.” If it works, wireless roadside technology


would benefit everyone. Law enforcement officers could focus more of their efforts on catching bad actors instead of looking for needles in haystacks. Drivers could spend more time on the road instead of alongside it. And carriers could use technology to help take care of compliance issues while they focus on moving freight down the road quickly, safely and wirelessly. RW
