Feds Raid Trucking Company For Forcing Drivers To Falsify Logbooks

Federal agents raided a trucking company in Mt. Crawford, VA on February 12th on charges of forcing drivers to falsify logbooks. Unfortunately, this sort of thing happens all the time, but for it to be happening to such a degree that there’s a raid by federal agents really says something.
