Can a Crete driver just drop off someone on the side of the road or do they have to get paperwork to get the person removed from the truck?

It's my daughter she is on a truck with her boyfriend and he keeps in saying he is going to dump her. He did have the paperwork done to have her there. He begged her to go.

This is a whole different scenario. This sounds like she is just a passenger, not an employee. The paperwork gives him permission to have her on the truck for insurance reasons. She is there at his invitation. I highly doubt any company would be obligated to retain her on the truck in this situation.

And yes, I have seen this a few times. Couples fight, one gets kicked off the truck... then they meet up again.

I'm guessing she is young and seeking adventure. The best thing would be to encourage her to come home. If he is violent, she needs to get off that truck and even do a gofundme if you need to get her a bus ticket. Whatever is safe for her.

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

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.

She wants to come home. We live in Oklahoma and they are up north. She is hoping they can get closer so we get her. He is getting jealous she is talking to us. He won't have acheck this week he draws all his money early and we put food on the truck before they left. How to do a GoFundMe if it comes down to it.

Sorry to hear of this situation.

This site is to help new drivers find schooling and companies to become productive in a new career.

This is not a company issue but a human relationship issue.

We do not do fundraisers. I wish you luck with resolving rhe situation. Im sure if you do some searching you will find churches or charities that can help.

good luck

Still a bit unclear...

If he is just being a jerk maybe she needs to "tough it out" or get him some help. If she is in danger or being abused (emotionally or otherwise) I would suggest she remove herself from the truck. She could do it safely at a truck stop or rest area (best in daylight with people around). Call or ask someone to call the Police.

Don't recall seeing her age. Non-emancipated Minor or adult? Makes a difference.

A bit off-subject for here but I am sure we all want a positive outcome.

Shelters, Travelers Aid Society, Salvation Army etc. also come to mind.

Calling his bluff and being proactive may be her best move. Just my $.02...

She could get out at any Truck Stop, call the Non Emergency Police number for that area and they will help her get home. She would be considered Homeless and since there is a shortage of homeless beds/ shelters they will most likely give her a bus ticket home or hook her up with an organization that will help her.

I’m a trucker driver but I’m also a Mother to five children and have 8 grandchildren. There is 3 facts missing from this story. 1. This guy didn’t just start being a jerk once they drove away. 2. This was a rocky relationship from the beginning . 3. She didn’t ask your permission to go so she is a grown woman. She needs to grow a set of balls and get out of an abusive relationship. But she won’t they will fight she will call u and whine and tomorrow be all kisses and smiles. I was in Chicago few days ago a couple in a swift truck parked next to me. I heard some loud noise and this guy is just cussing this women telling her to get off his f— truck. She is standing there But Baby, But Baby. Really t’d me not that he was cussing her but because she was allowing him to do so. I’ve been married 27 years and never would I allow my husband to disrespect me that way.

As a father of two daughters this really makes my stomach turn. I'm not trying to sound Macho here but if someone treated my daughter like that... I'm sure I'd have to call someone to post a bond... hopefully I'd still be eligible for bail....
