Every day for nearly 19 years at least one person has died on Texas roadways. Help us #EndTheStreakTX so no one misses the precious moments in life. https://t.co/DvCI3XuCKM

Heartbreaking. Last week, 2 people died on the South Loop following a major crash that began as a minor fender bender.

IMPORTANT: If your car can be safely driven after an accident, Texas law requires that you move it off the roadway. #SteerItClearIt

"October’s tonnage change, both sequentially and year-over-year, fits with an economic outlook for more moderate growth in the fourth quarter." - @ATAEconBob

Tuesday, Nov 19, @TRUCKINGdotORG will release its first look at October for-hire truck tonnage. It’s been a volatile year so far - did that continue? It is important to note that ATA’s data is dominated by contract freight, not the spot market.
