    Yes. Just as soon as you get a job driving with a company, start applying elsewhere. It is my suggestion that you take a long hard look at yourself and figure out what you are doing wrong. My problem early on was that sometimes I simply forgot I was drive a tractor that had a 53 foot trailer behind it. I would turn a corner safety for tractor without the trailer and then the trailer would take something out behind me. This usually happened when I had to make a quick move. Once I had a car pull out in front of me and I turned into a parking lot really quick to avoid the car. I took a pole down that I didn't even see until it crashed down around me.

    Figure out what is causing your accidents and quit doing it. Learn from your Experiences. You can't have made it to 60 without having done that.

    TransAm might hire you.
    Carolina Cargo might hire you.
    Can run solo with TransAm. Carolina Cargo is teams doing west coast turnarounds.

    I I live in Seattle Washington working for an East Coast company doesn't make a lot of sense unless they have runs going west consistently

    That's all they do is west coast to east coast and back. You will see both coasts every few days; never ending.

    Ok I'll give them a try, I've been evaluating my preventable accidents since they happen every time it was either when I was being yelled that with the trailer which I don't do well with or QUALCOMM going off with information that I really didn't need distracting me from when I should've been doing
