They can and do track our every movement already. We are only allowed to drive a certain number of hours a day, we have to take a specific number of hours off every day, we have to log every single thing we do. Even when we decide, on our off time, to go in and eat a meal, it has to be logged on our logbooks. If we stop at a rest area while driving to go to the bathroom, we have to log it.
Those of us who own our trucks have to pay an additional 15.3% income tax they call "Self-Employment" tax on top of the income tax everyone else pays. We have to pay a heavy vehicle use tax of $550 a year. We have to pay "Fuel Tax" on each gallon of diesel we buy. We have to pay a "Road Use Tax" to every single state we drive through. We are subject to being stopped and searched on a whim. Everytime we go through a weight station, we can be subjected to reviews of all of our paperwork (log books, bills of lading, etc).
