    I try to not speak bad of other companies BUT, Yesterday I had a Western Express driver signal and moved left to the center lane, I was almost to my exit and at last minute, he darted over right 2 lanes and nearly took off my front end making the exit, rather than travel to the next available turn and do it safely.
    I pulled up next to him, and got his truck number, I called and emailed Western Express twice and still have not heard anything back. If this is the way they handle safety issues, I truly feel sorry for the good drivers within that company. They will be labeled with the poor drivers.

    Im sure that Western Express has some great drivers. But they are also a second chance company and some of their drivers dont deserve a first chance.

    Just look at their SAFER snapshot, it will tell you everything you need to know. They average a recordable crash every 475,000 miles and have vehicle OOS violations on over 25% of inspections.

    They are a second-chance (tertiary) carrier.

    I bet it was a former Swift driver. He couldn’t hack it at Swift and now he’s creating chaos at Western Express.

    You have to figure that they are bombarded with calls and emails regarding their drivers lack of common sense. Your complaint was just added to the pile already on someone's desk.

    And those are 3 words that have no business being put together "Western Express Safety"

    Yes I have to agree and I apologize. I think I should have know better. Do they even have a safety department I wonder?

    He missed his exit because he was putting mustard on his hot dog........that's the only explanation I can come up with.

    I think safety has a weekly pool and are busy updating the numbers for the payout due to the short week..
    Rest assured your complaint was counted towards this weeks pool total.
     
    TheLoadOut and Snowshoes Thank this.
