Morning Brett I'm self employed. I don't really know how to explain it better.. I'm not to worried I'll figure this out.. what makes u guys so top tier.. u sit there hold a wheel for 11hrs .. Sound difficult not try to be a smart a$$ just saying.. I'm sure if u been on the road for over 5 years u had to have gotten a violation of some sort. I got one for my mud flap flapping in Arizona while back I don't care how pro u are when the truck is moving mud flap gonna flap. Stupid regulations don't help. ive never had speeding tickets or any accidents guess I'm top tier ?? One of my drivers has brand new truck and reefer trailer not even 20k on it brought me violations. Some of these DOT guys are funny it's not always the driver fault in my case it's different I screwed up. I know this. It don't happen often. Would be cool if could post pictures on here that way I could post my company ticket that I got. Just a idea

I had to put more butter on my popcorn...I consider myself top tier because I don’t get caught with weed and a pipe😀😎

Set yourself up for that one Oleg

Old skool u pay to much to details might get u in trouble one day but it is good to stay sharp.

You just said that one of the, if not the, hardest workers in this forum will "get in trouble one day" for paying too much attention to details. This thread is getting out of hand.

First: Here is a link to the FMCSA site and the laws about the possession of marijuana in a CMV.

Second:You can easily post pictures on this site. Scroll up from the text area for your post and their are blue buttons there. Click the "Photo" button.

Third: I have been in this country since February 28 1967, when I was born. I am shocked that any LEO would let someone operating a CMV with drugs or alcohol off without at least a ticket. We operate under federal and state jurisdictions and are held to a higher standard. I have said on this site before that drugs and alcohol do not mix with a CDL. In my opinion, anyone who needs a drink or drug should find a career behind a desk. I think the officer who gave the pipe and dope back to you should at the least be reprimanded.

Happy Birthday Scott and I could not agree more with your statement. Drugs and Alcohol have no place in the career of a trucker. Drinking a few cold ones is way different than illegal drugs, as long as the cold ones are not interfering with your driving or when you are driving. Everyone loves a nice cold beer now and then as long as you know the difference on when it is appropriate. I have never touched an illegal drug and very proud of that fact. To me being a driver is too important to me to mess it up with crap like this.

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

CSA:

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

FMCSA:

CMV:

Commercial Motor Vehicle

A CMV is a vehicle that is used as part of a business, is involved in interstate commerce, and may fit any of these descriptions:

  • Weighs 10,001 pounds or more
  • Has a gross vehicle weight rating or gross combination weight rating of 10,001 pounds or more
  • Is designed or used to transport 16 or more passengers (including the driver) not for compensation
  • Is designed or used to transport 9 or more passengers (including the driver) for compensation
  • Is transporting hazardous materials in a quantity requiring placards

Fm:

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Holy ancient troll-thread-resurrection Batman!

Oleg is LONG GONE - probably flipping burgers for violating a dozen federal regs. I hear he's working for a natural gas company back in his homeland...
