So I wanted to check in here I regularly used this site as a base of research when I was researching trucking.

I have completed one year so far about 130,000 safe miles no tickets, CSA points , or preventables. The doors are pretty much wide open now and I'm looking to make a move next month to an outfit I should bring home about 1200-1400 a week take home.

Good luck to you all and just remember GOAL and pay attention:)


Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA)

The CSA is a Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) initiative to improve large truck and bus safety and ultimately reduce crashes, injuries, and fatalities that are related to commercial motor vehicle
