    Some fool posted on the fb page that he’s going to continue to drive the way he sees fit and will stay with MERCER till they fire him because according to him when he has a heavy load coming to the top of a hill as long as there’s nobody at the intersection he Rolls thru so he doesn’t have to wear out his clutch...this is the type of idiots that MERCER seems to be bringing on board and causing a lot of these problems..

    Some Mercer stooge just rolled through his stop sign and pulled out in front of me as I was coming over an overpass.

    Looks like Mercer has good cause for what they're doing.

    Maybe Mercer has a good reason to do it. I’ve seen quite a few Mercer drivers who drove like total idiots. I’ve seen them run stop signs, weave thru traffic with no signals, tailgate 4 wheelers. I hate driver facing cameras but I can’t help but feel like they brought a little bit of it on themselves kinda like fedex ground with the speed governors.

    They did bring it on themselves by lowering standards to anybody who’s living and breathing with a CDL they were leasing on

    I was thinking Landstar instead of Mercer before this new info.

    I gave my info to Mercer before the Great Plague , but I have since been indoctrinated into the religion of Mighty DoorSlammers.

    I was temporarily swayed by the Evil religion of the Tarp Monkey.

    Now Mercer has Guided my Way towards the true Light of LeaseOn Freedom

    Praise Da Lord.

    Excellent point. If they didn’t lower their hiring standards they might not be in this situation.

    The one thing that shocked me in my 15 months of driving were the amount of semi wrecks with no wrecked 4 wheeler in site.

    Usually rollovers into the ditch.

    Way to many speeding stupid newbies out there.

    The training standards need to be more stringent than they are right now that is a major problem in this business
