    Okay here is one company to beware of.The company is MSJ Trucking out of Opp Alabama.They tell you you will run Monday through Friday,home every holiday and get 3,000 miles a week.We didn't mind running sunday to saturday most of the time,or being out til the morning of holidays.What ticked me off was that we had an accident,which was a cars fault for coming up on our blind side.Well,dot and state troopers had us at the scene for about an hour,and as soon as we were let go we went to the next exit(1 1/2 miles up the road),called larry smith,our safety guy to report the accident.we asked where my hubby needed to go to take the drug screen.Larry said not to worry about it,they would take care of it when we came in for christmas home time(2 days away).Well,we went home under a load,to be delivered the morning after our home time was up.When we went to get our trailer,it was gone,along with the paperwork,which was in our truck.Needless to say,they reissued the load,then terminated my hubby,saying he didn't report the accident,even though I could prove we did.Plus we picked up a load a month before that was sealed,couldn't open the trailer.The weigh station in arizona got us 2500:biggrin_25513: pounds over the weight on axles,they said they would pay the ticket,but I found out 2 months ago they never did.So beware of them.....

    I am read this article is too good. The truck is really dangerous vehicles among the peoples. The drivers are drunk to drive and make many accidents. The admin must control properly and the company is becoming a good position.

    first of all ,why didnt you weigh load at the scales before you left and went on the road?
    blind side? we have mirrors for this and also always double check before changing lanes.you should always know who is on side of truck,just because car is in your blind spot,still makes it your fault!

    Why are you commenting on an accident that happened 2yrs. ago? Did you honestly think those two idiots would still be somewhere around this board? I'm sure she's at work right now at her convenience store job somewhere around East Hushpuckeney Alabama and he's home drunk wading through dirty diapers and trash at the ol' trailer house.
    C'mon people, get a clue!!

    His post count is only at 5. I think he is just posting to be posting. I agree with you no bases to post on something 2 years ago.

    people drag up old posts all the time, i guess they don't bother noticing the OP date.
    if you have been driving 13 yrs you should realize there are " 'ol trailer houses" in ALL parts of the country. but thanks for stereotyping us southerners, 'preciate it.:biggrin_25512:

    Pat, I'm certainly not stereotyping southerners in any way shape or fashion. I'm sorry if it was taken that way. I'm originally from the south myself so I've heard all of that nonsense too.
    Again, Sorry for any misunderstanding.
