Defensive drivers don't tear up trucks

Ever seen a CDL truck driver that didn't have grey hair?

There aren't many... baby boomers out number 20 year olds by something like 2 to 1.
There's just a lot more of us than there are of them...

Youngsters like to "hot dog" their trucks.

Just because a truck "CAN do something", doesn't mean it's a good idea to.

Take two drivers.

  • both make the same # of runs for the company

  • both come in ontime, and don't call out sick unless they really are sick

  • One drives defensively
    The other ( a Youngster) hot rods his truck.

    Which one earns the most money for the company?

    It's not what you make, it's what you get to keep!

    The hot rod will cost his company not just thousands more in repair costs, insurance claims, etc... it could easily run TENS of Thousands of dollars!

    Here's a rule of thumb:

    Place a coffee cup on the dash of your truck.

    Run through all 13 gears...

    if you don't spill the coffee, you're a truck driver

    if you get coffee down into the defroster vents... the head mechanic will hunt you down and... you get the picture.

    This site is not responsible for libel, any driver who ever worked for a truck company is welcome to rate any company they worked for, of course if they got fired, they might not give an accurate description of what it was like to work there.
