I once met a Prime driver who had his wife, two children ages 2 and 4 (roughly), and a puppy (wtf??!!??) on his midroof truck for the summer. Not sure if Prime's policy allows that, though. They all seemed happy so it was sure working for that guy.

Idk about Primes rider policy, but if that driver is doing it behind their backs, then he can get in a serious mess of trouble for many reasons.

Schneiders policy requires 6mo of accident free before allowed a rider. 18y or older nonrelated, 10y or older (I think) related. 1 passenger at a time, must be approved and insurance paperwork must be submitted. Absolutely no pets in company property unless it's a therapy dog (a military vet at one of our terminals had a comfort dog (sheltie) with him).

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

BMI:

Body mass index (BMI)

BMI is a formula that uses weight and height to estimate body fat. For most people, BMI provides a reasonable estimate of body fat. The BMI's biggest weakness is that it doesn't consider individual factors such as bone or muscle mass. BMI may:

  • Underestimate body fat for older adults or other people with low muscle mass
  • Overestimate body fat for people who are very muscular and physically fit

It's quite common, especially for men, to fall into the "overweight" category if you happen to be stronger than average. If you're pretty strong but in good shape then pay no attention.

PTL allows any rider from day one above 7 years of age as long as they are immediate family. You just have to give the company a request form and a copy of their photo ID (for DOT document).

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.
