    Hi, my name is Wesley and ive been trucking for about 2.75 years via CR England and Shaffer Trucking. Just recently I accrued safety points really fast for u-turns and was terminated. Ive been told I have to wait 6 months to work again. Is this true? Does one company have a say in another companies policies? Reason im asking, I understand black and white policy but my points were accrued in a very short time and from u-turns. I had just changed DMs and had not had a problem with my driving up until the last two months of employment with Shaffer. Anyways, Is there somewhere I can see these nonwritten rules of safety and the sentences behind them or am I just playing the fool in this waiting? Thank you for your comments to this subject or directing me to where I can read about it myself. :)
     
    Coffey Thanks this.

    From what I got reading you post is that they want you to wait 6 month to get hire back on? Or saying you can't get a job with another company for 6 months.

    Where is your location?
    A 2nd chance company might hire you, but we need to know the state and nearest city/town to you.
    U-turn is a serious offence!
     
    Coffey Thanks this.

    were you given a ticket, or did they notice the u-turns from a dash cam or tracking device?
