Questions about name-changes, social security numbers and trucking employment

Here is an amazing thought.... Women do this all the time due to marriage and divorce. SS and IRA just list them as "also known as".

The IRS will find you. Qhen I got married , Social Security never properly changed my name although I applied in person. So guess what..... My CDL has a hyphenated name. My SS has my maiden name and the bank and credit cards cash the checks.

I never had an issue until my sister died. My info was listed as witness and somehow SS said I was alive but IRS said I was dead....despite being a federal employee at the time. IRS rejected my returns for 3 years until they straightened it out on their end....not my fault

Women just need to provide the name change documents to DMV.

It can take SS up to six weeks to change a name on a SS card once the application is submitted, I read. I don't know if a driver would actually get fired by a mega for having an SSN and name that don't match. They would probably just be told to correct this with SS ASAP. It's probably just a good idea to get the name-change done at SSA before applying for a job. This way if there is anything negative connected with your former name (negative work history, conviction, bad credit, etc.) , SSA won't inform your employer that your SSN given matches your former name which they might provide to the employer also.

Questions about name-changes, social security numbers and trucking employment

Scenario: one legally changes his name from "Joseph Robert Smith" to "James Thomas Brown" by a judge: Mr. Brown then gets a car driver license under his corrected name: Mr. Brown, at age 50, has had an issued social security number as Mr. Smith that is 123-45-6789 since age 18 but he never applies with the SSA to get a new card: Mr. Brown then goes to apply to be a truck driver with a company-sponsored training program, example Schneider or Hunt: he applies under "James Thomas Brown" but uses 123-45-6789 as his social issued as "Joseph Robert Smith"on his application

Will this hypothetically cause trouble with his employer? Is it true the IRS only cares about the SSN and not so much as any name associated with it? Is it really necessary for Mr. Brown to contact SSA for a card under his new legal name in order to get employment and/or a CDL? Your SSN still stays the same even if you change your name to Howard Hoaxer Humblepie.

Are there any ever restrictions on carrying cordless power tools on company trucks?

Amazing that truckers out here doing the job every day get called steering wheel holders by someone who doesn't have the guts to come out.

Even worse? He is terrified to try without a firearm. Just amazing.

And to clarify.... My modern day Lexus type of truck has a panic button on the dash that activates an outside alarm and also notifies prime and the police. Again... Rope thru the air horn pull and problem solved.

So... Cry baby girls like me have bigger balls than trolls.

Well, Kearsney, driving a rig through Tornado Alley during tornado season is probably more hairy than the notion that a bad hombre might bust into your rig and night and murder you or rape you while you sleep. As a soldier, I was put out in the field all alone at night to guard the perimeter out on maneuvers. I had my M16 but no bullets to shoot anything. Typical military "intelligence". It was dark and spooky in the woods on summer night. I could hear coyotes howling nearby. I thought I saw Bigfoot even!! It turned out to just be tall dark tree trunk moving in the breeze.

It's rather odd since the modern mega fleet trucks don't look so rough and tumble like they did in the old days. They look like more like oversize Lexuses on 18 wheels! Giant geekmobiles.

Just put up a " warning driver sleeps fully nude" sign

Does an "operator carries no cash" sign on the door work as a bad guy deterrent? It seems like the sole motive for the bad guy to even bust inside a truck is to take some money from the driver. I use plastic mostly. I don't think drivers ever have to worry about being raped inside their trucks. They are not known to have that young-and-slim glamorous Hollywood celebrity look. Same goes for me: I'm no smooth handsome looker of a young stud myself. I don't have that Val Kilmer "Iceman" from Top Gun charm. Speaking of which, "Do you happen to know that number to that truck driving school I saw on the wall?" If I did have that charm, I'd certainly go to Hollywood to find my fortune, not email firms like "Big Orange".

I haven’t read your other post about safety but it’s now on my list of things to do. Should be entertaining.

I’m just curious, you say you’re concerned about the mess a can of wasp spray will make, but, your post talks about a chainsaw to take off limbs or someone’s head. Aren’t you a bit concerned at all about the mess of cleaning up severed limbs and the resultant blood spatter?

If you’re that worried, run a ratchet strap between the door handles at night, no one is getting in past that. But, as others have said. There are many, many, many more things to concern yourself about than having some random person enter your truck while you’re sleeping.

Well, if by some 1 in 1 million chance I ever get to drive a truck for a living, I will definitely make it a bedtime habit have the doors rigged up to the horn like Truckin Along With Kearsey suggested. I watched a good portion of her YouTube video and there are many good pointers there. Arming myself with a toothbrush? Against a bad guy with a knife or a gun? Might help as a weapon working against tooth decay. Next to the rope or ratchet strap trick, I might just have some pepper spray handy too. No, I wouldn't really be too worried about a blood mess if I had to defend my life or limb. I'm a soldier after all. The insect spray is a chemical hazard though unless the splattered blood is infected with HIV then it's a biohazard. Ok, doors secured to the horn (because the bean-counters at Big Orange won't invest money to install something like OnStar), pepper spray, beware of surroundings, consult with company managers for safer alternate routes and safer overnight parking places, TruckPark on Samsung Galaxy tablet??, calling the customer to find a safer way to make a delivery, I think I got this big-rig driver personal security education down pat now! I get all this security freak stuff in my noggin from having been in the military.

Moe, I should be OK if I were to tie a rope to the horn like the lady above suggested. Call the authorities in an immediate dangerous situation. Good luck with that. Maybe send smoke signals if no phone connection can be made. Hopefully a mega like "Big Orange" would not dispatch their drivers to some craphole anyway. I think drivers in the small mom-and-pops get sent to the craphole locations most often, maybe??? I could be wrong.

My idea of a craphole in terms of being crime-ridden is: Detroit, Chicago, LaLaLand, Atlanta, Cleveland, DC, New York City and New Jersey. President Trump did not speak too highly of Baltimore.

Just for fun I contacted [one unnamed mega] and asked them this just to test the waters of this game:

"Hello! I'm considering a new career as a truck driver. I was curious to know how as to well your company is committed to the personal security of its employees. I've heard of several horrible accounts of drivers who have had to park in places they feel insecure and about how the criminal elements have broken into their cabs as they sleep and violently attacked them. How well does Your company protect its drivers against possible violent criminal encounters over the road and how does your company help keep its drivers safe from the actions of violent thugs? What modern technology, policies, procedures, techniques and equipment does your company utilize to protect drivers from bad people all across America as they work and sleep over the road? A truck, I gather, brings a driver often to unfamiliar and hostile places far away from home and is reputed to offer limited protection from criminal intrusion or attack as compared with an office building or even a motel room for lodging."

Their reply to me:

"Hello Moose,

Thank you for your interest in _______'s driving opportunities. Safety is our number one core value. Because of this the safety of all our associates is at the forefront of every decision we make. All drivers are issued a Samsung Galaxy tablet during orientation. One major feature of the tablet is turn by turn GPS navigation with information built into the system that’s important to drivers. This includes gas stations to fill up at and truck/rest stops that are safe locations for drivers to end their day at. The tablets also have access to an app called TruckPark. On there you can see reviews drivers have for those park locations. If a driver feels they are unsafe with where they are parked for the night we ask that they leave the area and then immediately contact their manager for assistance in finding somewhere they would feel more comfortable being for the night. In situations where a driver feels they are routed to drive through an area they feel uncomfortable with we would again ask that they contact their manager to come up with an alternate route. If a driver ever feels unsafe near a delivery site the would have their the customers contact information. In those situations we encourage the driver to contact the customer and work with them to get them onto the property and into the delivery area safely. If an immediate danger were ever to be encountered we ask that our drivers contact the local authorities for assistance with the situation.

Please call us at 1-800-___-____ or text “Chat” to _______ if you have any other questions and we would be happy to assist."

LMAO. "Please hold it, Mr. Burglar!! [as he is prying my door open] I have to call the police right now so they can save me from you!!" Is there any guarantee a driver will even always have a cell connection at his/her parked location? How long would it even take the cops to show up?

I purposely mentioned nothing about firearms. I did not hear any reply from this particular mega that their trucks were equipped with advanced 21st century security systems (like the OnStar system that is in some expensive cars) to automatically summon police in the event of any break-in attempt. Hint: this mega has orange trucks with black lettering!!

Check out my video on various weapons..

Self Protection OTR

You keep being worried about being asleep while someone enters your cab. Run a rope through both door handles and up to the air horn pull. Before they even get the door open you and the rest of the truck stop will be alerted

I have been driving 5 years and never needed a gun. I am a woman and I feel safe... Now if you think your constant questions would antagonize people to the point they want to kill you.. I understand.

Lol. Sorry. Had to

Most violent crimes tend to happen against sleeping drivers that is why they get the most thought from me. That is when bad guys know they are most vulnerable. Does every tractor have an air horn pull control? I will have to read over your link you posted.

Keep a few cans of the wasp/hornet spray nearby. That stuff can shoot out to 20 feet and acts like mace when sprayed in someones face. And if someone asks why you have it, just say bees and stuff sometimes build nests in open trailers.. Forget trying to get exotic and over think something.

I've thought over the possible use of "chemical weapons". Inside a tight cab, there is the risk of breathing in or getting exposed to the chemicals yourself. Is spraying bee spray inside a cab a good idea? It certainly is weildier and handier than even a chainsaw. Will I get injured by bee spray if I shoot a perp inside the cab with it? It's going to create a nasty chemical mess inside the truck that will have to be decontaminated too. Again, Dan, you might be onto something. Of course if I'm defending my own life and limb inside the truck, I'm not going to worry about what damage the company property will sustain anyway. I certainly don't want to occupy or drive a truck until the insect poison is thoroughly cleaned up. There will be residing annoying and toxic bee spray fumes until that stuff is thoroughly cleaned off everything. Is mace or pepper spray just even a better idea than either a saw or bee spray? Can mace or pepper spray be carried on military bases?

Why do I ask? The gun thread below got me to a thinkin'. Well, since many carriers seem to like to ban firearms I figure some kind of portable power tool running off a rechargeable lithium battery might make a fairly decent means to ward off a possible attack while you reside in your sleeper. A power tool could do a lot of damage to the face, arms, fingers and hands of an attacker fast. I have cordless chainsaws in mind. I think it more highly menacing and damaging than even a cordless drill with a long bit. One could use a CO2 fire extinguisher for defense but it will deprive the tight space of a cab of oxygen so you might pass out and die. Any person here keep any kind of cordless electric power tool for personal security inside the cab? An 18" battery chainsaw might seem hard to beat as a power tool used as a personal defense weapon inside the tight confines of a cab. The tactical advantage in such a tight space is the would-be attacker can go out only one way: the way he came in if you confront him with a menacing power tool. He can't easily circle around you or get behind you.

A chainsaw with a 18" bar will quickly reach out and cut off fingers and hands of perpetrators unlike a non-powered tool as a tire iron. You know what the power saw does already to big wooden logs. It will take the bad guy's head off fast too. Since it is battery-powered, it will start quickly and reliably and run cleanly unlike a gas saw which would be unsafe in cab due to toxic/flammable fuels and fumes. Most likely the mere sight of a chainsaw buzzing will send a bad guy vamoosing in a flash.

Bunking with 60 snoring/farting men in basic training in one open bay was a bummer but the drill sergeants never put up with funkiness.

I understand the safety purposes of keeping the gun locked away, ammo separate etc. But it makes it rather useless for when you actually need it. If someone with ill intentions smashes the window while you're asleep in the bunk are you really going to have time before they attack you to gather it up or would you take them hands on or with another object next to you.

"Moose" let's just focus on getting started in this career before you try to fix what you perceive to be problems.

Well, while parked at a truck stop, the gun would be out and loaded as I sleep.

Nowhere in this letter did you consider the customers rights to not have firearms on their properties. YES, i was asked at a customer to open my under bunk door and they searched it. Most have signs stating "all vehicles and customers may be searched and weapons prohibited " And yes, Prime did once claim they were going to search the truck for alcohol, they didn't, but it is their truck and they can. Yes we did have an incident where a student brought a gun into a trainer's truck and the student pulled the weapon on the trainer after a heated argument. As a trainer I do not want students to have weapons.

As far as vehicles being searched... DOT in some states will search more than others. Get pulled into a weigh station in NJ and found with a gun... you are going to prison for 4+ years just for having it... even if it is locked away, and even if you have a permit for your state . Many of the liberal states do not have reciprocity laws. So just carrying will slam you in jail.

Part of the genius of our constitution allows states to determine their own laws. Therefore you are trying to impose your values on another state to which you are not a constituent.

I love the argument about the truck being my home. It is not my home, I cannot use it as an address. It is the property of the a business to be used as transporting commerce.

Here is New Jersey firearms transport law:

Guns in Vehicles in New Jersey

Last updated October 28, 2019. New Jersey prohibits any person from transporting, possessing or having a firearm in his or her control in a motor vehicle, unless the firearm is unloaded and contained in a closed and securely fastened case, or locked in the trunk.1 The state also prohibits any person from possessing in a motor vehicle any shotgun or rifle loaded with ammunition or missiles of any kind for the purpose of hunting or attempting to hunt any bird or animal.2

New Jersey provides that all firearms being transported between a place of purchase or repair or a dwelling or place of business,3 by members of rifle or pistol clubs under certain circumstances,4 or to or from: 1) hunting and fishing activities pursuant to a valid hunting license; 2) target shooting on a range; or 3) any exhibition or display of firearms,5 shall be carried unloaded and contained in a closed and fastened case, gunbox, securely tied package, or locked in the trunk of the automobile in which it is being transported.6

My hats off to the state of Oklahoma and other states that have enacted state laws to protect the rights of truck drivers and other employees in regards to being armed while on duty even in company vehicles.

https://www.overdriveonline.com/trucking-law-gun-rights-on-the-road/

"This holding created quite a stir. After this case was decided, the Oklahoma Legislature enacted a statute prohibiting employers from banning firearms in employee vehicles. The Bastible holding played a part in the growth of gun rights legislation.

During the past 20 years, numerous states have adopted “workplace protection” or “parking lot” laws that limit employers’ ability to prohibit firearms on their properties. These states include Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Wisconsin.

The statues generally say an employer may not restrict a person from transporting or storing a firearm in a locked vehicle in any parking lot, parking garage or other designated area unless the possession of such firearm is prohibited by state or federal law. Some states also limit this employer prohibition to parking areas accessible by the public. Some states require that the firearm be stored in a locked compartment."

Ooops, my bad! I read that article wrong. Oklahoma protects your right to have a gun in your personal vehicle while parked on employer grounds. I'm not sure drivers are yet granted rights by law to keep firearms in company vehicles in any jurisdiction.

I did write President Trump and my US Congressman and Senators this message yesterday morning, however:

"I favor federal legislation that prohibits US employers, freight motor carriers, to make policy against truck drivers for keeping guns in company vehicles for personal security while working or sleeping anywhere in the United States of America. This legislation I hope for might be in the form of some federal "occupational safety" act. It might even amend OSHA standards. Commercial trucks already are required by law to have seat belts, reflective triangles and fire extinguishers for the protection of drivers. Don't drivers also deserve protection from the violent criminal elements as well as they sleep in their cabs? Their cab sleeper area is their home away from home. Why should their personal abode away from home not also be secured against vicious thugs? Many company-employed American truck drivers travel far from home as duty requires it. They are often required to cross state lines. They are often required to work, park and sleep in (often unfamiliar) crime-ridden areas. Their vehicles where they sleep are often not very secure against criminal intrusion. Commercial trucks with onboard sleeping facilities for drivers don't provide nearly the same level of anti-burglar security as a private home or even a motel room. Sleeping drivers are subject to being brutally attacked or murdered as they sleep. It is both cruel and inhumane for companies to fire drivers merely for being armed on the job to feel safe. The risk for being a victim of violent crime is considerable for truck drivers. Many US trucking companies sadly have such anti-gun policy and it's high time for Uncle Sam to put a big stop to all of this.

Furthermore, I favor national concealed-carry federal legislation to allow truck drivers as well all law-abiding American citizens to carry firearms for personal security away from home during their travels. Some states and local jurisdictions are notoriously anti-gun/anti-self-defense and some such places are highly-crime-ridden as well. The federal government should step in and strongly protect the Second Amendment rights of American citizens from anti-gun states, anti-gun local jurisdictions and unscrupulous anti-self-defense employers.

Americans need to feel safe everywhere they travel or work away from home. Truck drivers' and American travelers' collective life and limb matter in Oklahoma, New York City, California, Chicago and everywhere."
