My husband is Owner Operater and I book his loads, I rarely go out on the road with him, but this time I did. We were going through Indiana when we got pulled over by a statey, he asked that my husband go sit in his patrol car while running his license. The statey said we needed a letter from our company saying I was allowed to be a passenger in the truck... our truck... our company, from him to him. If we didn't have that letter then my husband... see more

Our house payments are lapsing and I am so scared. My wife is ill and can no longer work. We aren’t making enough to get by with the job I have now and I think we will lose our home in the next 4 months if I don’t act fast. I know it sounds nuts, but what about truck driving?

Thanks for accepting my invitation.

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.
