Would you guys consider a load that you rejected but that was dispatched to you anyway a forced dispatch? Dispatch has been trying to get someone to take this load for at least one day. Apparently no one wants it. It will be going through So. Cali. Where winds will be 25-35 with gust of 50-60. What would you guys do?

Rookie driver here. I’ve been through Wyoming with winds so strong I feared I’d flip the truck. The company can force the load on you but can’t force you to risk your life. Winds come and go. I promise you the winds won’t be 50-60 for 24 straight hours. Drive while your safe. Park when the winds pick up. Use your 11 hours how you see fit. You’ll be fine

The load I picked up this afternoon had me going across i70 with gust of wind reported at 75MPH, but still took the load. Currently shut down sooner than I wanted to since I finally got to the area, so I'll be here until the morning when its supposed to be cleaning up.
