The Coalition For Efficient & Responsible Trucking (CERT) – Some of America’s premier professional drivers share their view on a proposal to extend the length limit on twin trailers from 28 to 33 feet.  In their own words, hear from four of America’s Road Team members about safety, efficiency and the environment.  CERT formed in 2104 to advance safe, sensible, and environmentally sound changes in the market for less than truckload freight.
