Do any of y'all have a famous (to us) and original quote from a member of Trucking Truth that rings in your head on occasion?

This one I came across today, I'm adding to my bulletin board. It's from an older thread, but it sure is WHOLESOME! (And, I'll let Y'ALL guess to whom the credit might be, haha!)

"An amateurish display of arrogance and ambivalence to safety." << Regarding ignorant CMV drivers passing incessantly and incorrectly.

There's a treasure trove of information on here for the new people, and I just thought this would be a FUN compilation, while educational, as well!

Thanks;

~ Anne ~

ps; ADD YOUR OWN!!!!!! PLEASE~!!! I'll be adding more, as I come across them..in my notes and whatnot, haha!

CMV:

Commercial Motor Vehicle

A CMV is a vehicle that is used as part of a business, is involved in interstate commerce, and may fit any of these descriptions:

  • Weighs 10,001 pounds or more
  • Has a gross vehicle weight rating or gross combination weight rating of 10,001 pounds or more
  • Is designed or used to transport 16 or more passengers (including the driver) not for compensation

I have 2 quotes that stick with me. The first is G-Town's "watch your wagon".

The second comes from my days working at Walmart's DC. Walmart is very strict when it comes to safety and cutting corners. I had a supervisor that would always tell me "if you're thinking about doing something unsafe or cutting corners just remember, you have to get lucky everytime. I only have to get lucky once". He said that referring to him catching me in the act. Now, when I get that thought to cut a corner or do something unsafe, it only has to go wrong once.
