    I’m a little blonde I realize, but what’s with a handicap placard in a truck? We kind of have to give up front row parking.

    Because there is such a thing as passengers....
    And don't worry, someone else would have gotten those spots before you got there anyway,

    Good luck keep us posted! I don't even think that farmers from a couple of pages back even needs a CDL! Always a way,.even if you go drive expeditor vans under 26k gross.

    They don’t do drug tests during the DOT physical right? When I first broke it I was given a prescription for Hydrocodone. After learning it was a banned substance by DOT, I switched to an anti-inflammatory instead. I’ve taken hyrdocodone in the past 30 days..... if asked about prescriptions I will tell them what I’ve taken

    No they don’t. They are supposed to take a urine sample and test that for glucose and blood. Hydrocodone won’t be in your system past 5 days anyway.

    If they ask it would be for prescriptions that you are currently taking. If you’re not currently taking something I wouldn’t disclose it.
