My "thoughts" would be: why bother drinking beer if you're not going to get buzzed? Most "near beer" does have some alcohol, .05% usually.

Save it for hometime.

One of the few things that will destroy a trucking career permanently, are drug/alcohol related offenses.

Having it while "underway" - even "near beer" - WHY? "Technically", you are not permitted to have alcoholic beverages in the cab, while "on duty" (though we can all attest to seeing drivers sucking them down on a 10/34 in a truck stop), the only place beverages are legal "in motion", is in the trailer with a BOL that says that's what you're carrying.

Most drivers won't even risk mouthwash with alcohol.

Kinda weird for a "first question" on the forum.

Rick, good comment.

This is a totally separate question, but what does it mean that you are a “Technical Advisor “? Just curious.

Rick, good comment.

I've been on board for a long time (have had a CDL for a decade).

Used to be very active on the board. A few years ago, when Brett added a few more moderators on the board - he asked me also, but we thought (since I haven't actually driven full time), that it would be more appropriate to give me that title, instead of moderator.

Most folks that have been around, used to call me "Rickipedia", because I usually have, or can find the correct answer for trucking related issues.

  • 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.

Rick really is the Rickipedia of trucking. Anytime we have some sort of a technical or legal question he's the man that gets it all ironed out. It's great to see you back Rick. You're in a class of your own, no doubt about it.
