    Easy to figure out.

    One is normal.

    Triple endorsement is for the extra trailers.:yes2557::biggrin_25522:

    Big law suit if there would of been a situation. There is no real triples endorsement ,it just a combinations endorsements. Triples is an on the job training.;-O Trips have there own set of regs not like doubles in any combo. Can't imagine he made it 200 miles without getting hammered. I wouldn't of made it out of town. I have pulled quad train before by special permit........in a local town parade. took half an hour to do a walk around. hahaha

    I pulled 9 Roadway pup trailers once. But we were just goofing around at the terminal, never left the parking lot with 'em.

    It was fun, you could actually drive in circles "circle the wagons" and tailgate yourself like a dog chasing it's tail.

    Sounds like US Xpress. When I first started driving trucks I thought automatic transmissions on 18 wheelers was a myth. Then one time I watched this hot chick hop in a US Xpress Volvo, and as she left I heard that truck shift gears 4 times in the parking lot while I was watching her and noticed that her hands never left the steering wheel.

    So, when you saw yourself tailgating, did you flip yourself off, or slam on brakes?:biggrin_2556:

    Well I tried slamming on the brakes but it didn't help. That *** hole behind me was really quick responding!
