very well maintained equipment been in business 35 yrs....no major accidents.. four of our trucks have hit deer and that's about it. We hire people on there ability to drive a truck. Were not hiring people to babysit our 11 yr. old daughter. We have a couple drivers who like to indulge on there time off. That's there business, as long as they dint come to work high..which they never do..actually they seem to be better drivers than our other other ones. They dint argue and are more team oriented..

So in my off time I can snort a little coke and shoot some Heroin, as long as I don't come to work high ? :shock:
You will be sued out of business the first mishap that involves a positive tested driver. :wink:

Wow. :shock:

I don't even know how to respond to something like that. And people wonder why the trucking industry is under a microscope 100% of the time.

Simply amazing.... :x

I hope none of those driver you employ who use drugs never gets into a serious accident. If they do, the DOT will go through their background with a fine tooth comb. If there are serious injuries, their attorney's will take you for everything you are worth. I don't understand why any carrier would risk everything for those who have such a disregard for public safety.

I worked for a similiar company a number of years ago. They were a testing company under contract to International Navistar. My ten hour shifted consisted of driving from Primm, Nv. to Mesquite, back and forth, until my shift was up. We were testing a new exhaust brake design, there was a black box mounted on the passenger seat that recorded road speed and brake cycles. Anyway, One of the trucks was pulled over for a roadside inspection because it didn't have any identification ( company name, DOT#, etc.) I never got the full story, but the trooper apparently smelled pot in the cab. The driver was arrested and the truck was impounded. Turns out this company had no drug testing program, improper driver qualification files, and did'nt even HAVE a DOT#!.

Aztrucker, I would say that you are living on borrowed time.

Sounds a bit odd that a smell could lead to an arrest. Now, a smell can lead to probable cause, which then turns into a search, which turns up the Jamaican cigarrettes the driver may have had.

Not one of mine! Maybe an outlaw piece of junk.

Once you are a professional driver and your fail a test you know could come at anytime. Forget about it. What other rules are you going to bend ,break or ignore.

I can't afford the risk of my insurance going up just because I gave someone a second chance.
