If only using your air horn for jaywalkers weren't something that would get you in trouble with your trucking company ...

DOT Medical Card

I know Swift is telling me to get the physical from a physician/NP on the national registry. They have and complete the forms. I have many in my area and a lot are at walk-in medical clinics. Look at www.nationalregistry.fmcsa.dot.gov. Hope this helps. Cheap May cost you having to do it again.

It's a DOT requirement that you get a physical from a doctor or nurse practitioner that on the National Registry. My doctor isn't on the Registry so I have to go to one who is.

Truck stop parking: Why are some people just stupid?

And don't forget I drove for 15 years. I know truck drivers pretty well. Trust me....he didn't park there innocently or accidentally. There are plenty of guys out there who can't stand to follow rules and don't give a rat's *ss how anyone feels about anything. You'll see it every day of your life out there. This kind of stuff happens all the time. People park in the fuel islands, on the CAT scales, and on property with "No Truck" signs all the time. They tailgate people, pull out in front of traffic, and spout out the most unimaginably disgusting and vile garbage on the CB every chance they get. This is an everyday thing out there unfortunately. It's not the majority of people, but there's enough of em that it's quite common.

Truckers don't have a monopoly on *******s. Rather your drive professionally or just drive for necessity, you have a license than you can read a sign. One of the biggest pet peeves I have is people with this entitlement attitude. I want to park there so I'm entitled to park there rather it's posted or not.

I wore out High Road

Air brakes got me too. I'm just glad DMV doesn't test on logbooks. I'm struggling with that one now, it's like who's on first.

You say you're 22 and you look 22 in your picture but by jove I'd swear you have the wisdom of someone who's twice or even three times your age. Great post.

CPAP (sleep study for private School?)

Companies need drivers to do the sleep test, drivers need the company to be able to afford the test.

I'm not saying I expect companies to pay for the test. What I am saying I need a job to pay for the test. I'm one of those who isn't poor enough for healthcare but not rich enough to pay to co-pay.

CPAP (sleep study for private School?)

Old School when I first read this post I thought I would have to do the sleep test in order to pass the physical. I've been putting off the physical because I have a mild case of diabetes and my sugar has been a little high. I've been eating out too much and not walking my dogs (husband's been doing it). After thinking I'm not so freaked out. Actually it may be a good thing because if I do have sleep apnea and don't know it, the test could actually save my life. I have diabetes but no symptoms, but because every grandparent of mine, my mom, aunt and sister have or had diabetes my doctor prescribed a glucose test. I now can feel when my sugar is high and have learn to control it with diet. Some as with sleep apnea, you may be so used to the symptoms that you don't know you have it. The flip side of the coin is that I need this job to pay for the test. Companies need drivers to do the sleep test, drivers need the company to be able to afford the test. Isn't it wonderful that our government cares about our health so much? Wow before you know it mayors of major cities will want the government to regulate how much soda we drink.

CPAP (sleep study for private School?)

Old School, great conversation. I understand the politics of regulating. We're currently experiencing the public wanting government to make life safe, and to some extent that's a necessity. I remember acid rain and the Cuyahoga River catching on fire. It's always more complicated than just lets regulate industry, can we say catalytic converter. Sounded good but in reality not. I'm just tired of being thought of as unhealthy because I don't weigh a certain weight. But that's just life. I do want to drive trucks but I don't know if I can afford to, I just barely came up with the money for school. Sorry to highjack this thread but dang this is aggravating.
