Hello, can anyone answer my question please... I'm fresh truck driver graduated from truck school last month. Im still new to Swift. Im still in the training with my mentor in his truck. I recently failed the stop sign and noticed driver cam has blinking red, put me on face to face status and 5 points on my driver scoreboard. Im just wondering what's face to face status mean? Will i get fired from failed stop at stop sign?

Only if it happens several times, indicating a pattern of problematic and dangerous habits behind the wheel. Too many points will get you sent home. Pay attention! Lives depend on it every time you’re behind the wheel.

Paul I want you to realize a couple of cold, hard facts...

- as commercial drivers we are held to a much higher level of scrutiny and accountability. There is a very good reason for this; your loaded truck is potentially a lethal weapon, and must be handled and managed with great care and skill. Blowing a stop sign is a fundamental mistake that indicates lack of attention and focus. Considering your status, expect to answer for it and provide details of what you learned from it and how you plan to prevent it from happening in the future.

- if you had hit another vehicle as a result of missing the stop sign, your Swift career would abruptly end, with a difficult path finding future employment. Add in personal injury and you’d also be facing potential criminal and civil action.

Don’t let this happen again.

Safe travels.

Did your Mentor not have an answer to this question? Just curious, as these are the types of questions he should be able to answer for you, or make a call and find the answer.
