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.

Mere "dot" or not, methinks you look lovely in blue, especially against a blue background...

My TNT got nervous driving so i violated to get us parked. I wont make the delivery appointment even if I tried when my hours come back. There were accidents everywhere. Plenty of jack knife and roll overs on I 80 in Nebraska. Total sheet of ice and the snow is coming.

We are parked. Will figure out what to do later.

Diver Driver is shutdown on I 80 in WY.

Be safe all

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.

I'd say that was the right decision if she didn't feel comfortable doing it. Out of curiosity how does Prime handle violations? I doubt they'd penalize you for doing what's needed to ensure your safety, though. If they do just go all Joisey on em!

Iowa wasn't any better today. I80 east of des moines was shutdown in 3 separate areas due to wrecks. I got lucky, putted along north at 35 mph for 2 hours then dry pavement, and everything was dried up by the time I got back, rolling into the yard with 2 minutes left on my 14 smile.gif

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.
