Desperately seeking employment after a non injury dot reportable accident. I am still considered a rookie out here i guess but i was working for a local company that ran me and ran me as far as getting yelled at by my boss if he caught me taking a 15 minute break during the day. i was hauling the same 378 mile stretch every day and was driving fatigued and ran off the road. There was no injuries and the tractor was reported as towable because the engine shut off mechanism kicked in making it have to be towed but the tractor received no damage. i was cited with a negligent driving ticket. Is there any companies out there that would even consider looking at me? Any help would be greatly appreciated. im a single female driver and grew up in this industry but became a driver myself to get self supportive out of a decade long abusive relationship and i love to drive. and im so sick over all of this. please any info....thanks so much. and thank you drivers for all you do and sacrifice

Shannon, your experience is something we sound the warning about all the time in here. It's a perfect example of why we stress the value of starting this career as an over the road driver.

New wannabes pay attention to her dilemma.

Shannon, you're in a tough spot. Just apply like crazy and hopefully you can find a job. The problem with this situation is that none of the over the road carriers consider what you've done as experience.

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.
