    I started back when it was unusual for women to drive solo. First in straight trucks, then big trucks. I've hauled livestock, refrigerated, flats, drops, vans, and containers. At the end, I was an owner operator. I had more than a million safe miles with no accidents and no tickets when I sold my truck and went back to college about 15 years ago. Now, I watch Ice Road Truckers for fun - in front of the pellet stove in my recliner;-)) You can take the girl out of the truck, but.............

    Somewhere in the neighborhood of 1.75 million. Zero moving violations but a few stupid ones, 5 mins past curfew on oversize,non truck route,improper backing.

    Hi all.

    I have over a million also.

    Only a couple "dings" (nothing reportable), and just the "normal" logbook/speed/overweight tickets.

    But don't kid yourself that it means doodly-squat.

    If a unscrupulous company reports crap to DAC, you're screwed.
    Or if you take a break from the road.
    If you work somewhere else for 5 years and try to come back, they try to make you take a "refresher" from truck driving school.
