The start of the New Year naturally brings with it new responsibilities that make us pause and tread with caution. The Trucking Industry has an unstable market and makes us all wonder what the government will do next since New Laws and Regulations are quite common in the trucking business.

A new transportation bill was passed by Congress which will allow the trucking industry to create more jobs and strengthen our transportation system by monitoring and improving highway safety.

The Clearinghouse is a secure online database that will give employers, FMCSA, State Driver Licensing Agencies, and State law enforcement personnel real-time information about CDL driver drug and alcohol program violations, thereby enhancing safety on our Nation’s roadways. This new rule will allow employers as well as the FMCSA mandate drug and alcohol testing programs. This will allow employers to know if the hired driver is capable of performing functions safely while operating a vehicle.

As per the new bill the Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse has come into effect from January 6, 2020. Employers, drivers, medical review officers (MROs), substance abuse professionals (SAPs), and consortia/third-party administrators (C/TPAs) must register to access the Clearinghouse. Registration are available at https://clearinghouse.fmcsa.dot.gov/register.

Hundreds of years ago, people dressed up as saints and Ghost and went door to door to trick or treat , which is the origin of Halloween costumes and trick-or-treating, no matter how old you are or how many times you’ve been around the block, the holiday simply never gets old. The kids get the chance to dress up and enjoy the horror and fun of the event and the adults have an excuse to sip on a boo-zy Halloween cocktail.

On Halloween, it is believed that ghosts come back to the earthly world, and out of the fear that people would encounter ghosts if they leave their homes people would wear masks when they leave their homes to avoid being recognized by these ghosts after dark so that the ghosts would mistake them for fellow spirits.

Interestingly, this holiday has come to stay but with some modification and civilization, now Halloween is more of a social event that brings family together while trying to replicate a scenario where they hilariously dress up and scare each other, attend Halloween cocktail party and find the beauty even in the scary and haunted activities of the holiday.
