    That's assuming that the company has insurance and/or some money in the bank. Not a safe bet, especially if it's an owner/op.

    Depends on the condition of the road if it is rough going then doing 45 is the way to go, however yeah on the highway it should be at least 60 mph, once upon a time a driver would wait until the other vehicle passed by before pulling out, these new drivers don't consider the total inconvenience they can cause and the possible danger as well.

    Going 45 on a lease road is a good way to tear up your truck and trailer - assuming you're able to stay in control and not wreck the truck.

    Going 45 on the highway is a good way to piss off everybody who gets stuck behind you or maybe get rear-ended.

    Far as I've read that waste water is toxic, and may be positive for radioactivity.

    Flowback can be toxic, but produced water is just saltwater. H2S is a much bigger threat than radioactivity.

    What about the fact that it was reported on a couple of decades before fracking existed? Also, learn the difference between biogenic and thermogenic methane before you look ignorant again

    You're right about the water haulers. I just started. Expected to learn from them. They're usually full of it. Everything gets warped by their lust for money and selfishness. When the money is good. It ain't like in 2012. They just plain haven't matured yet. Some never will. They don't have good experience driving in the past. Work with guys who have never done OTR. Never done things like reefer. Don't know how to back. You're forced to learn backing well in reefer or dry van. In general, they're definitely bottom of the barrel.
    Have met some good ones. Also met crude drivers doing water. They know what they're doing.
    This company first asks water drivers if they want to become crude. Then hire outside for crude.

    Coal bed methane. I remember seeing it in our house here in ND as a kid. Our water well was at about 100 feet. Bakken/Three Forks is at 10k plus. No way water is going g to mitigate 1.75 miles through rock.
     
  11. I should look ignorant..
    that way I can fit it with most of some of these other lamebrain comments I see on threads that has nothing to do with what an OP puts up..
    so I no longer have to feel like an outcast
