From a previous lifetime, heard frequently during the process of training low frequency high risk tasks... "They let their eqo write checks their skills couldn't cash". Clearly, todays version would be something about venmo and bitcoin....

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!

From my favorite mini-series "Band of Brothers":

"remember boys, flies spread disease, so keep yours closed"

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
