    Its gotta just be an insurance thing. Insurance companies have mathematicians that sit around and calculate statistics and probabilities. Just because you are felon it doesn't mean you are going to roll the truck. Math played a big role in winning WW2. We used serial numbers on captured german tanks to determine that they were producing between 200-300 tanks per month. And we intentionally lost a few fights to enable us to win bigger fights, and we used statistics and probability to make the determination whether or not the win or loss was more advantageous. Its all math man, everything.

    We sent people in to die in fights we knew we would lose to win the end game. Hiring felons to drive trucks is nothing compared to that.

    Don't do usa or Carolina cargo unless absolutely a last resort. If your around the piers or a big rail hub I'm sure a small company will put you on. They most likely don't use dac and if the equipment gets dinged...........you'll fit in with the other pier rats lol.

    If your stuck with a #### job at least do the local-semi local stuff and not living in it 24/7
     
    Upinsmoke Thanks this.
