Truck Insurance Wholesaler Researches Future Potential of Self-Driving Trucks

InsuranceTruck.com Looks at Self-Driving Future of $700 Billion Trucking Industry Race between Silicon Valley juggernauts such as Uber and Google to get autonomous vehicles on the road first heats up.

Carlsbad, United States - April 12, 2018 /PressCable/ —

InsuranceTruck.com, a California-based truck insurance wholesaler for independent commercial agents offering a software-oriented quoting system for auto liability and MTC, has been contemplating the self-driving future of the $700 billion trucking industry, what with Silicon Valley juggernauts such as Uber and Google in a heated race to get their autonomous trucks out onto the road first.

“We’ve talked to some truck drivers who wanted nothing more than to achieve the American dream, climbing the rungs of the industry ladder from company drivers and parts managers to independent owner-operators and trucking depot managers,” states a spokesperson for InsuranceTruck.com. “Many of these people have turned their careers in the direction of autonomous – or self-driving – trucks, which industry leaders see as the future of the 700 billion-dollar trucking industry, with some even launching their own startups that develop trucks to be fully autonomous on the roadways of America.

“In these scenarios, remote drivers then take command of the vehicles from offices boasting arcade-style consoles. It’s all left everyone in the industry asking, ‘Who would have thought a semi would be driving itself?’”

According to InsuranceTruck.com research, this strategy is still in its testing phase, with programmers testing and tweaking trucks’ sensors and software, but many drivers interested in the self-driving technology have already cited reasons for being optimistic, including being able to be home more often. And, say InsuranceTruck.com reps, while there are people who are apprehensive about the technology because they don’t understand exactly what is involved, there are plenty of experienced drivers who are contributing to making the autonomous trucks as safe as they can be on the highway.

A number of interested drivers believe working remotely will ultimately make their lives better, and that the growing need for remote drivers means there will be plenty of trucking jobs in the future.

As an insurance wholesaler for independent commercial agents, InsuranceTruck.com offers assistance in the areas of hard-to-place risks, non-standard markets and high-risk insurance.

Aug 22, 2019

NEW YORK — A lawyer for Harvey Weinstein has asked that the disgraced movie mogul's upcoming criminal trial be moved out of New York City, saying he can't get a fair trial. In a longshot motion filed with the state appellate court on Friday, attorney Arthur Aidala suggested the trial be moved to upstate Albany County or Suffolk County on Long Island.

Cowboys' Elliott won't face criminal charge in Vegas scuffle

Aug 22, 2019

LAS VEGAS — Dallas Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott won't face criminal charges after scuffling with a music festival security guard in Las Vegas. Prosecutor Steve Wolfson said Tuesday the findings of a police investigation "lacked prosecutorial merit." The NFL said last month that Elliott didn't violate league personal conduct rules and wouldn't face suspension. Elliott was handcuffed but not arrested after police said he pushed a security guard to the ground at the event last May at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Cellphone video obtained by celebrity website TMZ showed an event staffer stumbling over a parking barrier after...

Review: In 'Brittany Runs a Marathon,' a breakout for Bell

Aug 22, 2019

Getting in shape and putting your life together usually, at the movies, passes in a montage. But for many, the non-Rocky legions of us, such transformations require more than inspiring theme music and lifting weights in the snow. And for the Brittany (Jillian Bell) of "Brittany Runs a Marathon," that's especially true. Brittany is an aimless and broke 20-something in New York who's startled when her attempt to pry an Adderall prescription from a doctor (Patch Darragh) turns into a recommendation to improve her body mass index. He suggests she changes her hard-drinking lifestyle and lose about 50 pounds. After...
