How many free miles do you drive and what can you do about it? I’m sitting here in a small Mom and Pop truck stop in Northern New York for the next 34 hours as mandated by the DOT. I decided to research my previous week’s miles and hours and came to a startling conclusion. I had driven 3400 miles in the last six and a half days but only 3000 were miles that I would be paid for.

Hello Truckers I'm back again. I need some advice. I got my CDLs license in 2010 of September before that I failed my DOT test my first week of school but I completed ASAP program and got my CDLs I'm having a hard time with any company because of the fail test what can I do where should I look?

In late January I woke up at a QuickTrip truck stop in Adairsville, GA, just about 1 mile away from I-75 off exit 306. I had a 1 PM live load scheduled but was getting bored sitting around since the night before. So I decided I'd call the shipper to see if I could get loaded earlier. She said "Sure, drive on over, no promises, but we should be able to fit you in."
It was raining heavily the night before, but in the morning the sun had tried to break out. The gal at QT

I've taken a few hard falls while out on the road. Really hard falls. And it's a miracle I haven't gotten really hurt. In fact, I've hardly gotten hurt at all. So in my previous blog where I make an argument for driving a big rig as SAFER than driving a four wheeler, overall the peripheral aspects to trucking can be pretty dangerous.
The first hard fall occurred when I was cleaning my side mirrors. I don't know what the heck happened, but I obviously mis-stepped and went down on
