That's very cool. I'm saving it also. The wind affects us flatbedders a little differently, but the information is still very useful.

Very cool. I've seen quite a few questions over the last year and a half or so regarding wind and safety. Maybe a good chart to add to the high road training?

Drove through Wyoming twice last week both days they had wind warnings. Both times they said the winds were 40 plus on the signs and I was pulling around 40,000 lb. I was buffeted all over the road. I did see them pulling one truck out of the ditch. Didn't look like he turned over but he was in the median. Needless to say both trips my shoulders were killing me after I got out of the area..

Over The Road:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.


Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

Thanks for the gratitude. I saw this yesterday on our portal and thought it would be helpful to all of us. Reduces the guesswork.

Safe travels everyone.
