    A few years ago, on the way back up from Greensboro, NC with a Hitachi 200 excavator, I blew the turbo on my truck, on US 58 in VA, about 20 miles west of I-85. In the 3 hours I sat there I had 5 Mecklenburg Co. police officers and 4 dump truckers stop to offer assistance.

    Add my 2 cents: I really think trucking companies are to blame to! They are getting so desperate to get drivers. "Some" dont road test them before sending them out or they say ok, you can't back up but your wife can no problem we can deal with that. What if the wife isn't on the truck one time (do you think the Dispatcher remember he can't back up). So todays world is getting to the "companies" also. They are competting in getting the drivers. You guys don't understand how much you have over the companies (if you have a good record etc)! I do feel schools can teach better! How long is schooling (most) anyhow? I know several subjects alone would take 3 weeks to teach and assure they know them!
    Driving a truck I am not sure but gosh it would have to take many times practicing. I drive my van and I get in situations, put me in a "BIG TRUCK" omg you talk about you all being scared, you better run like well you know!

    I was not referring to backing up because of the comment earlier, it was just an example ok!

    But do ask your company representive for help and I am sure they will be HAPPY you asked! :occasion9: SMILE EVERYONE

    AND I LOVE THE MOTTO, THAT IS MINE TO! ASK ME I WILL ANSWER, IF I DON'T KNOW I WILL TELL YOU I DON'T KNOW, BUT I CAN PROBABLY HAVE THE ANSWER FOR YOU THE NEXT DAY OR THE NEXT OR THE NEXT. L.O.L.

    Z in the NATO Phonetic Alphabet is ZULU. The ZERO in his line is a ZERO, the Number!

    Sad to see that this thread is 8 years old and driver training hasn't changed much.
