1- Cover your ass. Take pictures, get it in writing, scale everything, get a dashcam and run it all the time.
2- NEVER trust a dispatcher.
3- Never enter any place you don't know how to get out of. Throw the brake, set the 4 ways and walk yourself in. always make sure you can get out.
4-. Don't screw over the next guy. Leave the truck... see more

I drive safe and when I see people on the road doing these things it just pisses me off. Let's ALL be safe out there and use our heads.
1- Driving under bridges that are too low
Just because you THINK you can make it doesn’t mean you can! Read the clearance signs people! I have seen guys take out the tops of their trucks before. What a mess.
2- Skipping your walk around
Don’t get lazy! Check your damn tire pressure and your lines. PERIOD.

I would like free transportation since Elyssa C mentioned it
Last week I was doing a haul and the dispatcher told me I had to make it by 6 that night. It was my own STUPID fault but I drove faster than I ever do. I just really wanted to shut him the hell up and make it there. Well it rained hard earlier that day and I hit a big puddle. The truck skid and I flipped it onto its side. I called it in right away and then yesterday my boss told me I am fired. I couldn’t believe it!!!!! Anyone else ever get into... see more
I recently got pulled over and the state officer said he clocked me going 59 in a 30mph zone. I KNEW that wasn't even possible because I was in 8th gear and coasting along
When he told me the reason for pulling me over, I told him there's no way that was possible! I was driving empty and to reach 59 in 8th would have had to have a heavy load in the trailer and have some serious momentum going. I explained this and mentioned that he prob... see more
Last week after passing the scale I was pulled over for a DOT inspection. Figured it was routine when the officer asked if could see the inside of my truck. I got nothing to hide so I said sure. I was not carrying anything I shouldn't, but all of a sudden he starts rifling through my stuff and finds a large plastic cooking knife that was next to a spatula and some seasonings under my seat. I have a microwave in the back and sometimes I cook stuff... see more

I have 21 years experience customer service for window manufacturers. I have had 2 jobs my entire career. Company closed. I interviewed at another window company where I was offered a position but company unsure of what position and the pay is far less. My commute was 3 minutes now it would be 45 minutes. I need a job but this one? Should I request more money?
I was doing a long haul a couple days ago and had my dog Purdy with me. I love my little girl!! Not even 10 miles out DOT pulls me over. They tell me she can’t have her head out the window and that he is going to write me a ticket!!! I start to freak out, but as he is about to write the ticket Purdy starts to cry and puts her paw up in the air and kind of waves at him like she is saying hi over and over. He asks me if I taught her that. I said I... see more
