With Santa placed out of service, truckers save Christmas

Santa Claus joined members of the Minnesota Trucking Association on Friday, Dec. 20 to speak out against the overabundance of government regulations. According to the Minnesota Trucking Association, Santa’s entire sleigh and reindeer team had been temporarily put out of service and that the mandatory 10 hours off “put a major kink in Santa’s tight worldwide logistics timeline.” The order noted violations for Santa driving more than 11 hours in one day, as well as the sleigh’s lack of handrails, skid-resistant steps and an electronic logging device. In addition, Rudolph’s warning light failed to meet NHTSA’s reflective-materials standard.
