Here's HIS drive home, LAST EVENING! Napoleon (Toledo area) Campbell's ... to Mt. Vernon, Ohio. No plows. Note, the placement of the 'Pedigreed Bulldog' on the hood, LoL!

~ Anne ~

My drive home with an empty trailer. About 30 miles from Twin Falls, 45 from the house:

One mile from the Idaho Flying J at exit 173 on I-84:

0559500001640837204.jpg

Stopped while 4 were in the median and then number 5 came towards me but then jerked it into the median and came close to hitting one of the four:

While watching what was going on ahead of me, I looked back and saw a semi speeding toward me...I was stopped and had my flashers going, when he swerved, lost control and jack knifed into the median. He came about one semi length from me and I thought he was going to roll. Fortunately, his trailer rocked back and forth but stayed upright. People don't pay attention, even with all kinds of lights going on emergency vehicles!

Shipper:

The customer who is shipping the freight. This is where the driver will pick up a load and then deliver it to the receiver or consignee.

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.
