Any Hispanic/Latino OTR truck drivers out here?

I left nyc with the same fears + apprehension. Have I encountered racism? Absolutely. Have I lost sleep over it? Not one bit. You'll find the vast majority of the encounters you have out here will be amazing. Most folks are kind, considerate + friendly.

At the shippers + receivers? You just remain polite, patient & professional. You can only control yourself. Focus on being safe, on time + positive. It's a lot less stressful that way.

Considering ODFL as my first employer

You couldn't pay me enough to drive any rig in NYC. Don't know if you drive a 4 wheeler there Mancin but here's a few reason why you should not drive PD there.

Parking at customers is impossible so most of the time you'll be double parking. This means endless tickets with an occasional tow thrown in. Sure you don't pay them but do you really want to deal with parking cops?

If you're lucky enough to find a customer with a dock, good luck swinging that trailer around the traffic, parked vehicles, pedestrians, etc.

All the red light cameras, speeding cameras, bus lane cameras, police hiding everywhere to write tickets. What about those DOT checkpoints along heavy truck routes?

If I still haven't convinced you to to stay away from PD? What about traffic, pedestrians, restricted routes? Jump at Linehaul! Get lots of experience handling the truck & trailer. Sure you won't back much but you'll still progress and get lots of seat time to hone your skills.
