Keeping tractor secure in bad areas

Not really sure why the question, does the youth of this country not honor there rights, simple, 2nd amendment period, our life we live you better be prepared for all and hope for nothing

The store that I delivered to was broken into last night and I was parked out back in an alley. Not exactly one of the safest places. The police woke me up to ask me questions. What are some ways that you keep yourself and your tractor safe in bad areas?

Thankfull

hey guys You know who you are, it’s been a good run but I’m done, I have always followed and never really added much, I’ve been in industry 35 years and this was a dream and I did it, and I did it well, it’s time to spend it with family, a couple things, I have never been in any industry that you are basically judged on what happened yesterday, trucking is a very serious industry I know that, but you want to get more drives into it, things happen with the new guys, spend 3 weeks on a trainers truck who could care less, at least my experience, then given keys and hey good luck, the whole training has to change, hey a lot has to change, not *****ing, I did something for 3 years I always wanted to do and learned more here than any company training, I trained my share as well to give back, Brett, old school, Anne, thank you all, time for me to be a dad again, I really hope trucking changes, I see fishing camping with my boy and what ever rocks I can climb at 57, all be safe, my last dispatch home

Trucker Humor: Trucking Company Name Acronyms

Yes, Anne. Some of those Acronyms you refrained from spelling out might be a little too naughty for some of our younger drivers🤣

Is it normal to wait a while for a trainer?

Why do you don’t expect a company to know a trailer needs service, how about a company pre trip on the trailers, I run linehaul and no reason a terminal loading a trailer can’t pre trip it, a lot of wasted time could disappear, hooking up the other day and 2 trailer seals blown, that’s not something that’s easily overlooked, just load it and let the driver deal with it, responsibility should start with the company

WE is good for experience not for making money.

I found it good for both.

Most of us experience troubles like you did, but we learn how to deal with the issues. We don't expect the company to know things like which trailers need service. That's clearly the driver's responsibility to report those things. So, your problem came from your fellow drivers who speak worse of the company than you do. You can't lay blame on the company when the drivers are not taking care of what's clearly their responsibility.

As far as hearing from the CEO, I've never experienced that anywhere, nor would I ever expect to. We have driver managers who communicate with us, and the less communication you need is generally an indication that you are doing really well.

Of course we are thrilled that you are happy with your new gig, but we also know you could have done better at Western Express. It's tough. I can empathize with that. Our first trucking job is just tough on us. We like to see people figure it out and develop themselves into drivers that know how to deal with the issues.
