Boyfriend started with CRST a few months ago. He's with his 2nd co driver already. First one nearly killed them by taking an exit at 65mph and the one he's with now likes to text and watch videos on his phone while he drives. He wants to get those miles and the money like the rest of you but he'd like to run safely with someone who pays attention and knows how to navigate. He prefers a non-smoker. Here's a link to his Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/faike.mcfakey?fref=ts

I would think that he would have to get his co-driver thru CRST. I know theres a few here who are going thru CDL school thru CRST, so they will be driving for them. But they will have to go out with a trainer for an amount of time. There are a few CRST drivers on here also, but I'm not real sure they are looking to team, if they aren't already. Were I your boyfriend, I'd be grabbin' the danged phone from his co driver while he's texting&driving, and fling it out the passenger window. I mean really, whats the fool gonna say,"I'm gonna turn you in for stopping me from texting and driving"? And, if they should get in a wreck.....AND survive...Can your boyfriend lie well enough to cover for the fool, and still live with the lives that may be taken, or changed forever because he didn't do something about it when he could have ? I'd be on the phone to the safety department asap...
