    WP, sorry for your situation. Like I've been saying for years (it seems now), much if what happens in trucking is driven by insurance. We are approved to work anywhere that is willing to pay the insurance rate. The clash is in the big variances of how states and jurisdictions interpret then write up suspected violations. Have you tried a Data-Q's appeal of your "violations"? I read that Jim Palmer got out from under Prime...hope that is the case. Another friend went to work for Earl Henderson and they were in the same Prime boat. I guess anyone affiliated with Prime is at Prime's mercy. Trucking is tough anymore. Please check out that Data-Q's appeals process. If you can get any of those points reversed, it'll go a long way for whoever you go to work for.

    I didn't worry before. Now I'm going to go after things on that report. One at a time.

    I imagine companies aren't making much on Prime loads. Smart to get out from under them.

    Too ironic, WP, Tony wants to hire you but can't because our own safety has participated in dinging your record, so much so, that they can't insure you. Plenty of trucking jobs out there. Get some fishing in, I'm jealous.​

    Our Connected driver app is screwing up too...it's a Peoplenet network glitch.

    When you take 10 days off and expecting a $0 pay check, but the bonus payout happens and your $0 paycheck is actually $792 bonus. Win. :cool:

    @WesternPlains if you're going to keep driving, get your own dash cam. I already suggested it to another driver. Mine was $130 plus $30 for a bigger sd card. Came same day shipping thanks to prime. Such a small price to pay to cover your own butt. Mine shoots 2160p and just loops over old crap. Great quality and I have my settings maxed on 128g card. Has wifi so I can syn my phone and download content right there. Also has a built in screen so I can view content with the device if needed. No longer need to rely on the company cam or getting footage from them. Some 3m plastic velcro like they use on the prepass systems makes it easy to remove and mount.

    Just my 2 cents though. Protect yourself because people are crazy out here.
