    any box truck o/o running under there own operating authority? Anyone running under their own dot numbers

    Most expedited loads are light loads. So unless you have a customer that needs what you describe it would be a waste.

    To stop or not to stop.

    I stand corrected, there must be a sign. (4) An abandoned railroad grade crossing which is marked with a sign indicating that the rail line is abandoned, You would think a judge would throw it out if the tracks were removed,but I would stop,better safe than sorry!

    To stop or not to stop.

    All those rules are for railroad tracks,if the tracks are torn up,no longer there then it is not a railroad crossing.

    fuel card- advances

    Depends on the fleet owner,some would let you draw the same way you do now,and then reimburse you for the fuel cost. Others would have you use the advances just for fuel,and pay you say every Friday. Others may give you a credit card for fuel and let you draw your pay every run. I think others...

    Another Power Plant Another Story

    Maybe for quality or content testing, that they don't trust to or can't be done at an independent lab? Just a wild guess.

    ATTN All owners/fleet owners & carriers

    This is a sad situation,and my heart go's out to the owner,cause he didn't do anything to deserve this. As far as prosecution goes,look at it this way,you loan out a tool and it's not returned,is it stolen? It's more a civil matter than a criminal matter. You can sue the guy,but he will never pay.

    Missing/Stolen Truck

    When was Driver told to return the Van? Not sticking up for him,but you must give him a reasonable amount of time to return it. In most States this holds true. Having custody of a vehicle, boat or aircraft pursuant to an agreement with the owner thereof whereby such vehicle, boat or aircraft is...

    Load Extra's/Bonuses. Who gets what percentage? Driver/owner split

    Like I said, every owner gave me 100% of hand load/unload, even the one who did not stick to his promise of 65%. I would not have complained if they had not though. I worked without a contract,the the deal I made with every owner I worked with was a split of truck revenue,weather it was 60/40 or...

    Load Extra's/Bonuses. Who gets what percentage? Driver/owner split

    I have posted this in the past and people say I'm crazy! I think the owner is entitled to a share of everything even hand load/unload. I have driven for 5 owners since 1992,and that was the deal. I never signed a contract with anybody,and never had any disputes over money,except the last...
