The full story is: I was traveling West on I-40 about 40 miles into Texas from the state line when I was pulled over by a trooper for an accident he said happened back in Oklahoma near Elk City. According to th... Read More

I will be totally upfront about this……. I am a car (and truck) guy. If there were any justice in the world, I would be as wealthy as King Midas and have an enormous garage full of cars and trucks of every shape and size. Jay Leno would be jealous.

I was at a truck show recently when a driver, obviously distraught, approached me with a question. It turns out that the driver’s truck had been broken into over the weekend and he wanted to know what was going to happen with getting his belonging replaced. The truck was parked next to...

Ok folks…..here is the deal. The independent contractor business model is basically extinct in the state of California as of January 1, 2020. On Wednesday September the 18th the Governor of California signed Assembly Bill 5 (“AB5”) into law. For those of you who do not read ran... Read More
