    Wrong. Just because someone has a different experience/opinion than you does not automatically put them in a certain job category.

    I drive OTR, and have for almost 20 years.

    Oh, and I just thought of something.

    I have worked for companies (quite awhile ago, granted) that locked the dispatchers away from the drivers. Didn't want anyone to start a fight, I guess, LOL.

    All Knight terminals are open. Got a problem? Go talk to someone, face-to-face.

    csa.fmcsa.dot.gov:biggrin_2558: Knight is red flagged by the dot? wow. The "driver fitness" percintile is at 78.9% p.s. i'm not saying anything bad here, just some info that i came across the other day at the fmcsa website. Also read some company in MD was shut down because of the csa score, they actually reached 100% ..another red flagged company i saw on there was crst with a 92% in the unsafe driving category...go figure..:biggrin_25521:

    383.23(a)(2) Operating a CMV without a CDL 15 14 8
    383.51(a) Driving a CMV (CDL) while disqualified 19 18 8
    383.91(a) Operating a CMV with improper CDL group 4 4 8
    391.11 Unqualified driver 3 2 8
    391.11(b)(4) Driver lacking physical qualification(s) 12 11 2
    391.11(b)(5) Driver lacking valid license for type vehicle being operated 5 5 8
    391.11(b)(7) Driver disqualified from operating CMV 5 4 8
    391.15(a) Driving a CMV while disqualified 32 31 8
    391.41(a) Driver not in possession of medical certificate 57 2 1
    391.43(h) Improper medical examiner’s certificate form 3 0 1

    I can't be the only one that checked for my medical card after seeing that list. And it seems that the reason the total % is so high is because they got hit with 6 "big ticket" items and CSA freaks out and gives it a superhigh weight score then. They'll have a bunch of things go to a lower "weight class" next month and that will get their score under control, unless they get hit again.

    Also just noticed the state of Oregon wrote someone up for driving a straight truck and it was listed under Knight! :biggrin_2554:

    My guess is driver was on a permit.....

    Or CDL went bad because they had a west coast driver get lost on the east coast for three months. :biggrin_2552:

    In my experience, if you drive for Knight, you better keep track of your own documents, permits, etc. I just consider that part of the job, but I guess some don't.

    Somebody (Safety?) should be watching these things, but...
