Advanced backing training during month 4 of TNT?

This is a good example of why a driver should G.O.A.L. Those stantions, poles, boulders, walls, and bollards are hard to see, especially after dark.

Can somebody explain how that could happen? Was it during backing? I can’t figure it out.

The only way I see that happening is if the truck was moving forward and turning right. At some point those passenger side tandems had to be up on that curb.

Tandems:

Tandem Axles

A set of axles spaced close together, legally defined as more than 40 and less than 96 inches apart by the USDOT. Drivers tend to refer to the tandem axles on their trailer as just "tandems". You might hear a driver say, "I'm 400 pounds overweight on my tandems", referring to his trailer tandems, not his tractor tandems. Tractor tandems are generally just referred to as "drives" which is short for "drive axles".

TNT:

Trainer-N-Trainee

Prime Inc has their own CDL training program and it's divided into two phases - PSD and TNT.

The PSD (Prime Student Driver) phase is where you'll get your permit and then go on the road for 10,000 miles with a trainer. When you come back you'll get your CDL license and enter the TNT phase.

The TNT phase is the second phase of training where you'll go on the road with an experienced driver for 30,000 miles of team driving. You'll receive 14¢ per mile ($700 per week guaranteed) during this phase. Once you're finished with TNT training you will be assigned a truck to run solo.

It looks to me like a yard jockey is at the helm. My best guess is some kind of backing maneuver. I've seen where if someone is trying to back up an empty trailer while the trailer brakes are set (i.e. sliding your tandems with the pins still locked) it'll cause the trailer itself to lift up a foot or two. Maybe something like that happened and the trailer came to rest on top of the pole? *shrug*

Could it be that a forklift operator did this as a practical joke? Just today, I’ve asked several experienced drivers to look at this and offer an explanation. No one has any idea.

I was behind this truck today at a fuel stop. At least i got a chuckle while waiting my turn at the fuel pump.

Wouldn’t it be funny if there was a company called G Wizz Transportation and it merged with Gully to form Gully G Wizz Transportation?

Apparently, the driver confused “tire plug” with “fire plug”

Or he just had a big hole in his tire that was on fire.

There's a city just off I35 south of Des Moines by that same name. I shared pics elsewhere on the forum of the the bar in town having merchandise that says "I love " with the town name rofl-3.gif

We're opening another DC just off 35 there in June. They happened to also just open another gas station under our brand of "Fast And Fresh" on the edge of that property. There's gotta be a joke in there somewhere smile.gif
