    Is there a website that lists the safety ratings of the truck companies out there?
    It's coming down to the wire now. Kavorka has been in school for a few weeks now, after taking some very helpful advice he was able to find a trucking school out of a local community college.
    We went to his career day yesterday and there were 5 companies there.
    We want to take some time and really look at the different companies and their safety ratings.
    So, I was wondering how you find those and if there is a website that lists those.

    thx in advance

    That is what I usually look for, but i Noticed that they had the company I am switching too as a 93, not due to there safety, but due to lack of information.
    They have a bunch of inspections. The drivers and the trucks do well. But I guess a couple hundred over the last few years is not enough, for a company with 22 trucks. They still say lack of info.
    I always try to look thru the tickets, to see what they are for. Too many log book violations makes me wonder if they push there drivers to run illegal.
