    Hello all,

    I recently started trucking and I have a disability in my right arm called erb’s palsy. I’ve. I’ve noticed it is difficult for me to do a driver’s side back with my right arm because of the nerve damage that goes from my neck to my arm. Mainly it’s hard to look out the driver’s side window and still use my right arm to maneuver. It might sound like a dumb question but are there any driving jobs that are not so much 90 and 45 degree angle backing where I wouldn’t have to stick my head out the window as much and more of cross over backing. I’m now working for a reefer company and some of the areas are tight to get into especially the north east. The weird thing is I can use my arm to some extent just not real coordinated and can’t turn the steering wheel all the way around with it. So basically I have to do a lot of pull ups. I appreciate any suggestions.
