Speeding in work zone

Thanks G-Town.How will tris effect my driving?Will I have hard time to find another job in the future?For how long will these points stay on my license?Will these points be reduced every year or so?If anybody can help with these questions.I can’t sleep at night because this stupid mistake I made.Thank you all.

Pitkin you got lucky here. Speeding in a construction zone is usually a double fine. The Officer cut you a huge break.

Please learn from this. Drive your truck, don't let others do it for you. Lead by doing the right thing, don't follow others who are doing the wrong thing.

Good job on passing a level 3. That's a positive.

Safe travels.

Speeding in work zone

He did inspection Level 3 with no problem.It was in writing.I was trying to drive behind 2 trucks driving same speed and he wasn’t probably looking when they passed him.He pulled me over.This is not excuse just explanation of the situation.

Speeding in a work zone? Just a warning? Verbal or in writing? There is no excuse or justification for ever doing this, short of assisting the police in ending a chase, trying to get away from an approaching tornado, or an airplane needs to land on the roadway. You should feel very fortunate you did not receive a hefty ticket and/or lose your job.

Is 1000 watt too big for cooking in truck?

Thank u everyone.I was just wondering If my truck can handle it.Not sure what the inverter can handle.Will ask.Im starting regional run in next few weeks and got single burner w 900W and coffee maker around 650W.Friend who Drivers same truck as mine said,w his old microvawe being 1000w he blow his inverter.Wont have any other appliances like this.So I will just run my truck everytime im using them.

Cdl test info

He is right.I did my test about month ago and with these old trucks sometimes you will have hard time to put it in gear.But i did it few time but after my test I was told i passed because I handled my truck very well while i tried to put it in gear.So don't worry,it happend to everybody.Just make sure you won't stay without gear for long.Always slow your truck and this way you can show him,you are handling this situation.

Only if it's excessive and/or causes you to coast while trying to get the truck back in gear.

A few grinds and scrubs here and there isn't typically a fail.

Just read your story about your LTL job so I got the answer to my question.But you said,you got lucky because LTL companies usually wont' hire students out of school.So best way to find out is to call but there is a chance no one will hire me right?
