    Truck had an air leak since when? Why wasn't it taken care of in a timely manner? (Questions your boss should have asked you then)

    If the lawyer you hire to try to fix your screw up fails, do you hire another lawyer to sue the previous lawyer that failed to clear you??

    no, here is his wanting a lawyer in his first posting:

    I found out my past employer marked it as "preventable." I argued and argued with him today and he kept it on. I have a lawyer that will be calling me tomorrow about taking this a step further.

    You know, as many times as I've had to have tires changed, I dont think I've ever been asked WHY they were flat or blown. Sometimes a nail or something is found, or if it was obvious to me, otherwise I just keep my mouth shut.

    This is probably why so many big company’s ask for pictures of the take off tires.

    Not every mechanical failure is the drivers fault, but most are. A proper vehicle inspection catches problems before a truck gets on the road. Checking that your brakes are operating correctly is part of that DOT REQUIRED daily vehicle inspection. The how is easy, chock the wheels, release the brakes and get under the #### thing.

    What POS company puts something so stupid on a drivers record? Man you should have checked the brakes honestly you can SEE if they’re frozen or not.
    These companies make millions each year and pay drivers junk wages. I don’t feel sorry for the company at all.
    I can’t believe people actually stick up for these crony capitalist wet dreams.
     
    truckdriver31 Thanks this.
