Just wait, the miles will increase as drivers leave for greener pastures. )
If I've this right, I'll have to drive 50% more miles to make the same net, assuming the $0.40 for the truck must be paid first out of every miles. I don't think that's possible given daily mileage limitations imposed by the safety department and dispatching limitations, among others. Owner/operators could siphon value out of their truck to keep going a while, if its paid for. But when it's shot, they will be stuck with heavy payments. And what happens to those driving for owners when their owner decides to change the split to 45/20/35 in favor of the owner, so the owner can preserve his income??
Wonder where our three newer members are; ex-Raymond, the Kobe fan, and some other happy E-1 guy ?
Maybe running all the miles ?
Raymond trying to save up enough to buy his name back ?
Maybe they'll resurface on St Patty's day.
Can an E-1 with some spare time figure this week out.

The correct answer is that no one can answer this yet. When asked if the straight truck premium for over 12,500 lbs capacity and/or the sprinter premium for over 3,250 lbs capacity was gone? The answer was "I think they are gone but those issues were not addressed specifically in the rate change decision, but no mention of them in the new rates suggests they are gone." (by an unnamed official at E-1 who is in the position to know but I do not identify by request). I personally wouldn't count on any rate/capacity premiums unless/until they announce them.
