Hey guys thank you for the advice. I do like to keep my profile sort of private and hope you guys respect that. However I am not playing any games. I am also taking my company to small claims court now So obviously I am done with their BS. Lets not get to political about my avatar I believe in fairness and justice I believe Soros is decent. But I know this is a trucking forum and I appreciate your input . Thank you all for the advice!!!

You are driving heavy hauls... so you are an experienced driver. WHY would you risk your CDL for this company?

any one DOT violation was b3 enough for me to quit if not repaired.

Not very experienced but I did have a permit for 100k gross and mostly just heavy containers that shippers would over load. Worst offenders are recycling plants. I remember these guys loading a container for India they took about 40 minutes trying to shut the container with a forklift. After they finally closed the container they forgot to put in a piece of paper so they opened one door to put it in.

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • 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.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

Shipper:

The customer who is shipping the freight. This is where the driver will pick up a load and then deliver it to the receiver or consignee.

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

Prior to this you hadn't mentioned how they had wronged you in any legal matter. Why can't you just move on and mark it up as a learning experience. We told you repeatedly this was a bad move, yet you insisted on it. It's pretty obvious you enjoy playing games.

Here's a link to the conversation where I warned you about starting with this company.

The Time We Tried To Warn Ron

Don't get so carried away with your ideas of "fairness and justice." You made a bad decision in the face of solid advice against it from very well meaning experienced people. Would you like for that evidence to be brought up in small claims court? I mean, it would only be fair and just that the judge knew how bullheaded you are when faced with sound advice.

Get over it - move on and make some good decisions about your career. You wronged yourself. It's high time you recognized that.

Old school I appreciate your advice. I also took advice from people that I know personally and they may have led me in the wrong direction. I am moving on I am no longer doing anything from the company. I am going to court because they need to right their wrongs with me personally. I am moving on :) Thanks for your advice earlier Old School

Ron, I'm going to give you a little more advice. You don't have to take it - you can ignore it, but it is well meant and learned through some really serious struggles in life.

Learn to let go of being so concerned with being wronged, especially something trivial like a bad employment situation. You'll be a much happier person when you are able to free yourself from your feelings without having to have justice handed out.

Just take the advice or ignore it. Don't try to explain your circumstances to me. I can guarantee you they will appear very trivial to me.

Thanks I appreciate it . I would say most of the advice I got on here was really good. Strange how people I personally know gave some strange/bad advice. I will move on and do my best. Big lesson for me these last few weeks.

People who are not playing games usually don't post avatar pictures with George Soros under a name of a fraudulent real estate developer.

And people who want to keep their identity private also don't invite unwanted attention.

You wouldn't happen to drive a white BMW, would you?

And there we have it.

Let us know the next small carrier you sue.

Does Georgie get a kickback?
