    So, Knight Transportation canned me over ONE ticket. Only one on my record in 10 yrs. Now my problem is no one will even consider my application for 12 months... I didn't cause an accident, there were no injuries, there was no damage to the vehicle, but because I receive a single moving violation within my first 6 months with the company, they let me go and completely destroy my eligibility for rehire with ANY other company... So far 2 of 4 carriers have shot me down because I was terminated for what is considered a "safety violation". Still waiting to hear from the others. At this point, I'm not as concerned with what the company pays or how they operate, I just need a paycheck!

    So any suggestions as to which company out there that will hire me or is my $5000 CDL just worthless now?

    :biggrin_25510:

    Thanks Knight!!!

    Depending where you're located, check out Star Transport. I believe they're in central Illinois.

    You're leaving something out here.....

    That's the bottom line.

    Your post reads like a guy who just got out of the state pen. Telling a crowded stadium, I was in jail. Not a big thing.

    State Pen --- Jail ---- big difference.

    Just like "single" ticket CAN be a big difference.

    It could be for doing 140 mph through a school zone. But we dunno

    It's probaly a seat belt ticket or minor speeding. Knight is retarded and started canning people of minor violations to protect their CSa score. One of my buddies still wrks there and he said they send out Qualcomm messages of drivers the fire (names include) and what they r fired for along with the safety reminder. It's sad when a man looses his job over a seat belt ticket..

    Even if thats the case. It would not prevent him from getting another job.

    Neither would it change my opinion of that POS company.

    Well they send names. I just talked to him again a hr ago and he said they sent out 2 today 1 for a following to close and another for speeding. He said it didn't go into the details of how fast of a ticket but said there names were on their.
