Is anyone here a truck driver? or has anyone here ever drivin a truck? The companys have them fudging there logs have them working ungodly hours, My brother is a truck driver, and with the economy the way it is they are going to do what there company says not to loose there jobs,

With 5 boys to feed and keep a roof over there heads. His company had him driving 20 hours straight and told him to fudge his log book, I told him if that is the case run 2 logs 1 with his real hours behind the wheel and in the sleeper, so when they go to pull anything bring it to the DOT and show them what his company is doing.. If you do not understand what SOME of these companys are doing then do not say when are they going to do something about these truck drivers, It is the companys.

My x- husband drove for Garlick farms I have seen them keep him on the road for 21 hours straight he would get home and no more then 3 hours later they would call him in because someone had called in, I argued with there dispatch because them calling him in for them ungodly hours, If he didn't go he was threatned with his job.. What do you do then? loose your job and go on welfair? because Jobs are ot easy to find..
