    If you are a motor carrier based outside of large metro areas, forced to obtain multiple licensing & permits every year to service your clients needs, send a message to the TLPA that they do not represent your interest.

    For the most important person, the consumer who utilizes limousine type services in your travels. If you feel that NO Government Agency should dictate who to patronize, how much to pay for services, & what type of service that you must use & are sick & tired of footing the bill imposed by regulators upon the businesses you rely upon for your travel needs, contact the local regulatory supporting TLPA & tell them that they do not represent the needs of the traveling consumer.

    Economic regulation of businesses = economic regulation of consumers.

    A Citizens right to travel should not be based on finding a motor carrier with a particular local regulatory sticker on the windshield.

    Contact the TLPA at info@tlpa.org and send them a blast that they do not represent your interest!

    Yes, time to bring a little focus back on the "Dumber" of the Dumb & Dumber Team:

    Legislative issues of the TLPA:
    a - Minimize Federal Regulation-
    1 - The impetus of TLPA's formation in 1917 was to keep the federal government out of the regulation & "taxation" of local passenger transportation.

    Well shit, & here I was thinking that it is all the locals extorting the monies from motor carriers not the Feds. My bust.

    2- A guiding principle of TLPA's government relations program is still local determintation of passenger needs combined with state or local regulation.

    Lets see if I have this straight, the Feds will allow open market entry with regulatory geared towards safety for all motor carriers regrdless of locale & the consumers decide who suceeds & who fails. The TLPA wants the local commies to decide for the consumer what type of transportation they will use & enact market entry restrictions to provide economic protectionism of established businesses. Right GOLA?

    b - Oppose Expansion of Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations
    1- TLPA opposes the recent expansion of DOT's general safety provisons of FMCSR to stretch sedan limousines designed to seat 9 to 15 passengers (including the driver) used in interstate transportation.

    Too late for Florida dudes. You see, those there 9 - 15 passenger sedan stretches are defined under Florida law as nonpublic sector buses & The FDOT will provide regulations for safety pursuant to FMCSR's parts 382,385, & 390-397 pursunt to ch316.70F.S. regardless off interstate or intrastate.

    2- Regulations designed to make long distance truck, bus and van driving safer are not reasonable for stretch sedan and limousine operators.

    Who in the F decided this? Someone please provide a point sheet and explain this moronic statement. Of course its not reasonable! Nothing that the Limo Clowns can't control on the local level is "Reasonable" in their view. A little bit harder to bribe the Feds then your local politicos heh boys?

    Tampa Airports planned imposition of yet another layer of regulatory fees upon limousines which must be passed on to the traveling consumer is just another example of the TLPA's crooked policy of keeping regulation out of the Feds hands & on the local economic regulatory scene.
    Limos in Tampa:
    2 business licenses
    3 vehicle permits
    occupational license
    This is what the TLPA Represents!

    With no public condemnation yet from the West Florida Livery Association, I would not be surprised if they somehow are prodding this along to add another economic regulatory weight to smaller operators in an attempt to drive them out of business.
