    More than likely, so many pounds of freight put onto a dolly to determine an applicant's strength and stamina when pushing or pulling it. Working on the loading docks is often very physically strenuous work.

    Are you currently going to a truck driving school to learning how to drive a truck?

    If not, are you currently driving OTR for an over the road company, or locally for an LTL trucking company? If so, what company are you currently driving for?

    Good luck to you! God bless you and your family!

    God bless every American and their families! God bless the U.S.A.!

    Actually, DOT is part of the Executive Branch of government, not the Judiciary.

    The dolly that's pushed is the dolly that connects the pup trailers, not a dolly that's stacked with boxes...

    Go for OTR, that local crap they can keep. of course that's my opinion, been OTR for many years, I have no desire to go local. Have you ever seen how some of those freight drivers drive around the terminals...lol. have a safe one driver

    Actually, the Executive branch of government is the President, Vice President and the Executive branch is the one's that sign a bill into making it a law. The Vice President is actually considered as the President of the Senate. Example: Let's say the President goes in and has surgery. The Vice President is temporarily becomes President until the President gets out of surgery, and once the President gets out of surgery, and surgery is successful and finishes up in recovery. The change in power goes back to the President. Former President Bill Clinton had knee surgery, and Al Gore became President while the President is in surgery. The Legislative Branch makes the laws to be voted on. The Executive branch can veto a bill , and it can be sent back to the Legislative branch for either some changes, or a 2/3 majority of the vote to override a veto by the Execitive branch. The Judiciary branch of government is the one's that interpret the laws. I've got bachelor's degree in political science. In fact, the Department of Transportation, or D.O.T for short is a part of the judicial branch of government, and they consist of police officers, judges, and lawyers. The President can bring a bill to the legislative branch of government, which it consist of the Senate and House of Representatives. This bill will be voted on by the Legislative branch of government. Once the Legislative branch is finished voting and it passes, then it's sent to the President will sign the bill into law. Let's turned this around. If the Legislative branch comes with a bill, and let's say they voted on it, and it doesn't get passed. Then the Legislative branch will make some changes to the bill, so they get enough votes to get the bill to the President to get it signed into law. The President still needs the approval of Congress to send troops, and only Congress can declare war.

    State laws are little different. You have the Governor who is over the entire state they reside in. Then you also have your State House of Representatives and State Senators. Keep in mind, each state lawmaker are over certain districts.

    This is how the government is set up.

    As mentioned in the forum, both OTR and LTL have their good points, as well as both of them having their drawbacks. It really depends upon what is right for the individual truck driver, along with his or her circumstances and situations.

    God bless every American and their families! God bless the U.S.A.!

    OTR & LTL - over the mountains - through the woods - coast to coast - sea to shining sea

    The OTR & LTL truck drivers of America are positively the driving force of our economy.
