Did you hear about the driver who found $1,000,000 during a pre-trip inspection ?
Well, I found $1,000,000 under my truck while I was doing my pre-trip inspection the other day. I was just going around the truck, doing my usual checks and there it was, just lying there under the rear of my truck. I did not see it the night before when I parked, it was a dark parking lot. But you can imagine my surprise to find it there in the early morning sun.

Many expediters congregate in “Auto Alley”. That is to say, they basically run auto parts in a certain region of the country and their main customers are auto manufacturers and their suppliers. It takes a lot of people, whether directly or indirectly, to get cars from conception to the end user.
What do you do when you don’t think anyone is watching? For professional drivers, aside from driver facing cameras, usually you are not watched as closely as employees at a store, manufacturing plant, warehouse, etc. It is mostly up to you to decide what you do or how you do it.
