Another odd / bad test question...

I was just using the convoluted logic that they had "tractor" after conventional but not after COE. Did they ever give the correct answer when the test was done?

I'm thinking "D". If it had COE tractor as a choice, then B and D.

Tandems Won't Slide

More air?

Had this problem during my d seat training. prime road assist told us to put the blue line on red trailer port and release both breaks this gives the emergency breaks more air to hold the wheels. Also as suggested here by several people spray the rails with your favorite lube.

Routes that go into Canada/ Mexico

We went from Laredo to Mexico City in 2007/08 with the Nationwide series. They sent us in 10 truck convoys with Federal police front and back, plus a private security service. Goodyear also had to send a service truck with each group. Everybody had to run team, stopping once about halfway there. There were some "interesting sights and things that happened", but I think I honestly would be scared to go down there now with all that is going on.

Anyone know what this trailer is used for?

Anne *WARNING* This is stuff I dealt with 20 some years ago so no guarantee to the accuracy of the weights.confused.gif NY lets you buy R permits which lets your gross weight be 117-120K? on 7 axles(probably why there is a tag axle on the tractor.) There's limits on the spacing of the axles...>4' and <8' sticks in my mind. There's different weight limits in the counties closer to NYC. Here's a video of a walking floor---

It does look like a bulk hauler of some sort, I've seen potatoes hauled in them. It's in too nice of shape to be used for garbage and it's missing the big push bar for when they get stuck. Probably a walking floor (the control/and or power box in front of the axle), but the doors on the side are odd. I've usually only seen them in the nose, but maybe for easier cleanout? Having said all that, that looks to be on I-190 and there is a huge landfill just north of Niagara Falls so I guess I'll have to take "I don't know for $50 Alex." Jerry

Werner Vs CRST

JD Good luck on your new gig. I've been doing race car transport for the past 12 years and it is still fun most days. If it was me I would give my old company at least 2 weeks, but different strokes.... Like all the other segments of trucking, there is a real shortage of drivers if Werner doesn't take you back. Let me know if I answer any questions. JM


I am just learning how this business works today. I don't do anything without learning how the game is played first. I don't ask for raises I let my work ethic do that for me most new Werner drivers start at .36 cents a mile for the 1st year I live in Florida so they told me .36 cpm was starting pay, some states it's .38 cpm but I've earned an increase of .05 cents the 1st year without asking so werner is a good company in my opinion they take care of drivers who make the effort. I will drive those trans am cars to mid Ohio for the August 11 race if it cost me my job with Werner so be it there are other companies that I can drive for as well as one of the guys that will have a car in the hauler. But he is a local company in south Florida and I like running all over this nation but he will advocate for me if I lose my job with Werner. Like one of my clients once told me who was a very successful lawyer in palm beach he said " John! A good lawyer knows the law a great lawyer knows the judge!"

I really was asking if it was ethical to you guys to do this I guess.



What is best for you is not for others to decide.

Good luck in whatever you decide to do.
