Wow! I hope you do hear from Marten on this. What if he did this to a car. Somehow I'll bet he has and they could easily end up under his ICC bumper because they are notorious for following us way too close. Please let us know the outcome!

At least he used his blinker. Not that its a good thing to push other drivers around.

The video stands on its own. Our job is tough enough as it stands. That (expletive) shouldn't have a license for a tonka truck. Good work capturing it on video now I hope it's not in vain and the so called driver gets what's coming. A danger to everyone's family.

Wow, that's scary! Glad you're ok and the load didn't come through your cab. I would definitely follow up on this. I've seen other carriers pulling Marten trailers. Are you sure it was a Marten tractor? Marten should be able to find out who was driving from the trailer number in any event. Hopefully it was one of theirs, will make it easier for them to fire this guy and put it on his DAC. I would ask them to make sure to do that - I don't want to meet this guy on the road.

I decided to call their safety dept and leave a message, so I'll see if anything happens with that. The tractor was the same color that Marten trucks are, hopefully they can figure it out by the trailer number.

Haven't talked to you in a while, how's Prime treating you these days?

I'm very content. I had a couple weeks down because the shop where I took my truck to get the bunk heater fixed kept telling me "the part will be in tomorrow." I would've told them to button it up a week earlier, but I had a family crisis so figured I'd give them another few days to fix it. Prime took care of me so not a huge loss.

DAC:

Drive-A-Check Report

A truck drivers DAC report will contain detailed information about their job history of the last 10 years as a CDL driver (as required by the DOT).

It may also contain your criminal history, drug test results, DOT infractions and accident history. The program is strictly voluntary from a company standpoint, but most of the medium-to-large carriers will participate.

Most trucking companies use DAC reports as part of their hiring and background check process. It is extremely important that drivers verify that the information contained in it is correct, and have it fixed if it's not.

Thanks, Daniel for the tip... I'll start looking around
