Paths To Making GOOD money as a truck driver?

Don't forget about car hauling. I started hauling cars with only one year of driving experience. Best thing about car hauling for me, no wait at loading or unloading because I load and unload my truck. Takes me an hour to load and half hour to unload on average. I'm home every night with a layover here and there but mostly because I chose to layover to be productive. Anyway yea 100k is easy to do in car hauling if you want to work.

Where are they now?

I'm still here hauling cars, not that anybody asked! Lol. I'm just kidding, I never did contribute much in the likes of the members you're all wondering about. Still a great forum for newbies and not so new drivers seeking advice.

CDL School (Should I bother?)

If I were in your shoes I'd call some companies I am interested in and explain my circumstances and see if they would hire me or not.

HOS final rule?

Yea I'm understanding it that way now as well. That sucks!

Ok reread the two and three are supposed to be off. 2 or 3 sleeper won't pause anything like currently. But waiting at shipper or reciever for 2 or 3 off then minus drive time and taking 7 or 8 continuous sleeper will give your time back. Essentially paused. Still helps in a pinch.

PackRat, you can pause your 14 with 2 and 3 hours in the sleeper. Is that not what you wanted or what do I not understand?

Two years of comments, question/answer sessions, lots of meetings with truckers and trucking companies, millions of dollars spent for nothing. I'll never waste my time going to another "listening session" ever again. I'll never go online and take the time to fill out comments on an FMCSA page again, either.

Really PO'd because nothing was done about pausing the 14 hour clock "due to safety concerns". Really? Is it safer to drive tired some days, due to that unstoppable clock?

I'd bet after all the wasted time and money, it ended up being about 4 "experts" that don't even know how many tires an 18-wheeler has, sitting around a government table that came up with the latest load of crap for us.

After reading all the new rules, I am not feeling any trucker appreciation from the rule makers. Again.

HOS final rule?

Interesting... I thought more people would like these changes lol. I must have misunderstood the 8/2 and 7/3 split because I thought the article said it wouldn't count against your 14, meaning you could essentially pause your 14 with 2 and 3 hours in the sleeper.

I HATE the 30 min break and would love to see it gone but I'll take the revision of it because I usually have 2-4 stops taking anywhere from 10-45 minutes, depending on how many cars I have to unload and how fast the porters are at checking them in.

Hos final rule

Is this real? If so, what does everybody think?

I like it for the revision of the 30 min break, I could care less about everything else but that's only because I drive a day cab for now. I can see how the other changes would greatly benefit drivers in adding some much needed flexibility.

What does a quarantine due to coronavirus mean for truckers?

Am I missing something or did the number of deaths just take a huge step backwards? This image is from the CDC website updated today. Crazy stuff

I got this image from somebody else. When I look at the CDC website myself I cannot find this image but only the data I thought was being reported which is still 67kish deaths. Please disregard my last post!

How's Everyone Doing? How is Freight? Not Many Posts Lately

I've been furloughed for about 1.5 weeks and am told we will be back to work late this month/early next month. Cars are obviously extremely low demand right now and supply is extremely high. When we do come back production will be cut down to 80% as of right now(GM plant, spring hill, TN). We have a lot of drivers who have been furloughed for going on 4 weeks at different locations. Of those drivers many have been permanently laid off due to the forecasted reduced production.

I flirted with some local grocery hauling gigs while I'm furloughed but ultimately decided it would be best to wait considering I'll be back to work in about a month at the latest. Nevertheless, home improvement has been a full go!
