By Ashley -September 23, 2022
Starting next week, a popular Arizona rest area will close to the motoring public for construction, but will still provide parking and limited services for truck drivers.
On Wednesday, September 28, the Arizona Department of Transportation (AZDOT) will close the Sunset Point Rest Area along I-17 at mile marker 252 to the general public through the spring of 2023 for a renovation project.
During the closure, AZDOT will allow commercial vehicle drivers to use the facility for overnight parking. AZDOT will also provide portable toilets and hand washing stations for commercial vehicle driver use.File for your trucking authority here!
Non-commercial vehicle drivers can use a temporary rest area at the Badger Springs Road exit on I-17 located 4 miles north of Sunset Point. This rest area cannot accommodate commercial vehicles.
AZDOT initially planned the closure of the Sunset Point Rest Area to the general public to begin in July 2022, but after making the closure announcement, they reversed course and kept the rest area open to the general public for the busy summer travel season.
The $7.5 million rest area renovation project will include upgrades to the water systems, septic systems, restrooms, and vending areas, as well as an expanded truck parking area.
Biden pick Robin Hutcheson confirmed as new FMCSA boss
Yesterday the U.S. Senate confirmed Robin Hutcheson as the full-time Administrator of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).
On September 22, Biden administration nominee Hutcheson was confirmed as FMCSA Administrator by a voice vote in the Senate.
Hutcheson has been serving as acting/deputy FMCSA Administrator since the departure of former acting/deputy FMCSA Administrator Meera Joshi in January 2022.
Hutcheson will serve as the FMCSA’s first Administrator since the departure of Ray Martinez in the fall of 2019.
Since Martinez stepped down three years ago, the FMCSA has been led by acting/deputy Administrators Jim Mullen, Wiley Deck, Joshi, and Hutcheson.
American Trucking Associations President and CEO Chris Spear said, “I want to congratulate Robin on her confirmation to this important role. In her time as Acting Administrator, Robin has a true partner with our industry – working to confront a number of issues facing trucking. Whether it is addressing safety concerns, ongoing supply chain issues or workforce development, she has been open to engaging with our industry and we look forward to continuing our ongoing, candid dialogue about these challenges and to engaging with her and her agency to implement solutions that uphold safety and improve efficiency in trucking and across the supply chain.”
Hutcheson previously served as Deputy Assistant Secretary for Safety Policy for the U.S. Department of Transportation, Director of Public Works for the City of Minneapolis, and the Transportation Director for Salt Lake City. She worked as a consultant for 15 years prior to entering public service.
#1 HOOTERS WAITRESS ARRESTED FOR PUTTING HOT WINGS IN HER VAGINA
According to the Daily News Reported, a Hooters employee was spotted putting wings in her vagina. Co-workers for a Texas Hooters restaurant, caught wind of 24-year old Jessica Sinclair dropping hot wings in her vagina before serving customers.
In Houston, Tx- Jessica Sinclair (24) was taken into police custody after she was witnessed by co-workers dipping hot wings into her vagina before serving them to customers. From what authorities have told us, Jessica would dip wings into her vagina while on and off her period. This was done to customers who had been rude and/or made off-remarks about her appearance.
Why she would do this while on her period is anyone’s guess. The introduction of blood to this crime heightens the consequences of her actions. Tampering with food along with the addition of human blood is a criminal offense with special circumstances. It carries a sentence of up to 20 years in prison. The lesser charges of inserting the wings into her vagina while not menstruating, can carry a prison term of up to 10 years.
Family members of the perpetrator claim that; while she has the appearance of a well put together young woman, she actually suffers from multiple personality disorder and has a long history of d.
incidents that end in either a stay in jail or in a mental hospital on a 3 day hold. Had Hooters conducted a background check, this whole incident could have been avoide
#2 MAN CLOSES TRUCK STOP RESTAURANT DOWN OFF 295
New Jersey man Alan Lippsonovick was in the Whitman Travel Plaza off 295 in Cherry Hill where he proceeded to try and pull the bug in my food trick to get a free meal. The man carried around a jar of small cockroaches in his knapsack. He proceeded to open up and let one onto his table unknowingly to the restaurant staff, so he could freak out and get his meal for free. Alan had done this deal numerous times in other restaurants, he said, but this time the lid slipped off the jar all the way and he released more than 75 cockroaches in the restaurant! When this happened he was caught and the police called. The Travel Plaza was shut down for a week to take the proper actions to remedy the situation. Everything was cleaned and the Travel Plaza is now back open. Mr. Lippsonovick was sentenced to 90 days in jail and 2 years probation for his stunt.
#3 TRUCK DRIVER ARRESTED FOR POLIGAMY IN 8 DIFFERENT STATES
Mike Jones was arrested Tuesday by the Illinois State Police in Springfield Illinois on charges of poligamy in 8 different states. The man allegedly is married to 8 different women whom he has a total of 26 children with. Mr. Jones, a OTR Owner Operator in the trucking industry for the last 40 years, lived up to the old stereotype of having a girlfriend in every city he went to, it would seem. Along his route every month he would visit the same cities over and over and fell into a routine with the same women along the way.
Mr. Jones has wives and children in 8 states, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, Oklahoma, Indiana, Nebraska, and Ohio. Obviously all the women didn’t know about each other or this man would have been dead already! Mr. Mike Jones is awaiting his preliminary hearing in 6 weeks, and extradition hearings for the other 7 states.
