Just watched a driver beside me at a truck stop roll a joint

Could also very well be hemp he is rolling. Hemp is legal and people smoke it for the CBD. It contains a negligible amount of THC.

we had a woman here test positive and told she needed to go through SAP. she couldnt get hired anywhere... and she claimed she onlu used hemp oil from a natural food store as a rub for a bad knees, leg or muscle. i do t remember. i do remember she couldnt get hired.

Medical card

Also to correct you it doesn’t matter if you fail one after passing. If DOT doesn’t have that on record and only have your valid passing medical card attached to your CDL that isn’t expired. You’re good.

Hi... and to be clear... you are wrong Joshua.

As a matter of fact Big Scott got his 2 year card then 2 mos later he apploed to another company then failed his DOT physical. This invalidated his card and he lost his trucking job at CFI.

The same goes for new diagnoses. I had surgery and even though i had a card that did not expire for 6 mos, i needed a new physical. If i failed that physical.... the original would not be valid. Also realize the next form you fill out asks you about new conidtions or ailments. Lie and get caught on a federal form and you will have serious issues.

Funny Video for You

I often hear that mega carrier drivers are a cult or drinking the kool.aid. "smart" truckers always seem to know what is better for me.

I made this video with clips from other drivers.... and if you make it to the end, people told me it is hysterical. One comment was "i snorted my soda through my nasal passages" lol

Hope everyone had a Happy Valentines Day

Y'all, Pray For Me

I missed this thread then saw the title thinking you were sick!!! smdh

Diver Driver was on a shuttle.with me while students were asking me about leasing and i went on my rant. They recognized me from my YouTube channel.

Diver then saw the same student being told by a lease op that any company driver who couldnt make money leasing sucked at momey management. hahahha yeah ok

Old school... you are on a dedicated account though, with years of reputation. Diver and i have that at Prime so we are special. I feel bad for newbies who think bouncing around at companies will help them rather than building that rep.

I am uncomfortable taking an on-site sleep study-I already have 2 year medical card

I did the sleep study. It wasn’t much fun. I had zero apnea’s, but they still managed to diagnose mild sleep apnea because my breathing slowed 8 times per hour....probably because I was SLEEPING. Anyway, don’t need a machine, but have to pay them 250$ and still got a 2 year medical card....and the best part is I NEVER have to do that again!

A little piece of advice..... dont weight or many companies will require it. i tested negative and 2 yrs later gained weight... had to re test... now have the machine. if you can lose weight before that next physical do it just in case.

good luck. i responded to you. go check. 😁 and thanks for asking.

Upgrade question!

Here's one for you guys.... i habe 3 settlements with the operation costs of: $1.24 $1.81 $1.39

The 3 year average was $1.06 per mile. hmmmm.... That person has to get $1.60 per mile to equal a compamy driver pay only..... and his average load pay was $1.40 interesting. huh?

Upgrade question!

Good luck. The ACE II leasing class is 8 hours and even available on the phone app.

Because people falsly brag about how.much they make, i have videos that break down the lease ops pay settlements over 3 years... and compare it to being a company driver. My pay stubs are on my videos too.

Believe it or not.. when all is said and done we are pretty even... except.. company drivers go home every month and lease ops go home every 3 mos. We have benefits and workmemds comp, and they dont. we have 401k they dont.

you wont believe me. that is fine. your friend may be a bum. and why is he staying out for months???

No one will tell you about the $10,000 negligenxe fee or the responsibility for paying a freight claim.go to claims and ask them so you believe it. Not all cargo damage is covered by the insurance.... only accidents. Not all accidents are covered 100% due to your own negligence.

last week a guy had to pay $54,000 cause he didnt wash a trailer out and the whole.load was considered contaminated. that is what you deal.with being a lease op.

The only important number on the lease settlement is "Income & Expense Cash Flow Statement". That is your profit before taxes. then deduct taxes... and realize the lack of benefits.

all the other numbers are fluff.

I have Youtube videos explaining this stuff with actual statements.

Consider This! Proof of what a Lease Op Makes

Lapse of DOT Medical Card

Check with your state DMV. NJ gives 30 days from the time of their notice to you. So it comes to like 60 days past.

Sorry for your loss. good luck

Check stations and ports of entry

Also be aware of agricultural check stations. You'll find those in FL and CA. They'll funnel all trucks up a window where an officer will, in my experience, either A: Ask to see your bills, B: Verbally ask what your hauling, C: Just wave you on.

Just have your bills in easy reach and know what your hauling so your prepared to respond.

If your within 100 miles of the southern border you may run into a border patrol checkpoint. They'll ask if everyone in the vehicle is a US citizen. Often they'll run a dog around the truck to sniff. I've never been asked to pull in for inspection, but it's a possibility.

Hey Plan B... how ya been?
