    Do any fellow truckers know of any companies that would hire me with this on my record? I live in Delaware having a hard time finding a gig. I was recently recently fired for not slowing down enough when ppl cut in front of me and the last straw was me not slowing down enough for someone to merge in front of me (when they’re coming from the entrance ramp. I’ve already tried western express they said I need 6 months of clean driving

    "not slowing down enough", is this from having to brake too hard and triggering the camera?

    or do they get calls about it?

    confused as to where the complaint is originated

    Most of the drivers I see on the road work for companies which are obviously turning a blind eye to all sorts of aggressive driving. Makes me wonder if a few key details have been left out. Of course, it could just be a case of a company having too many drivers on payroll and looking for inexpensive ways to get rid of a few.

    That said, I do kind of wish they'd either correct or get rid of a lot more drivers who consistently fail (or refuse) to back out of unsafe positions...

    Yeah they expect you too slam the brakes if someone cuts in front of you or if they have to merge. If you’re gradually slowing down, it will get recorded
