    Unless there has been a lot of changes 6 years I have been away there is NO way a general OTR driver can make their pickups and deliveries and not have to blind side back. It just is not possible. I had to blink side back once because part of the dock area was being repaved. I had to blind side once in a MAJOR east Coast city once right off the road. No other way to do it. Same situation bad situation because of road work, in fact I felt lucky I was able to get in at all. I don't care what a carrier's rules are. If I am in a situation where I had to blind side I'm going to blind side. Safety don't like it. Well they can pucker up! Fire me and I promise you I would have had a job by the end of that day! I agree with @REO6205 .
    Dan.S Thanks this.

    I was supposed to live unload, got sent to truck stopsto wait for phone call, they called and told me which door, I showed back up, as soon as I pulled onto the lot there was no parking and no room and no turn arounds and a worker got rude with me trying to boss me around and saying I couldn't leave my truck there to move it then check in, told him I already checked in, they gave me worst door with no room, ignored original guy told security guard I don't have room to back in with my sleeper truck can they get a yard dog to do it, security guard asked a manager they pushed back on me to do it so I just said I'd have to back in off the street and its not safe and I'm not doing it so they let me drop it for a smaller truck to back it in and I got the heck out of there (my company got them to change it from live unload because of the delay).

    I've only had to do this once so far.

    Ask for a different dock door, or get written electronic authorization to break company policy and blind side back.
