Well, Ray used to be on the road as a trucker, and that’s what truckers do! They’re drivin’ along, and they’ve got deadlines to meet… they don’t wanna pull in and… park the truck, walk in, take a pee in the toilet, then go back out and get on the road… they just have an old jug and they… put their bird in it, have a pee, cap it off, and once it’s full they just drill the f***in’ thing out on the highway!


Dang, have not driven long haul in 19 years, but Swift still has those damn governors. Hated being stuck behind them. Stay safe drivers.


It should be noted that long haul driving is only one style of truck driving, not every trucker lives like this. I worked regional for a year so I was home every weekend. We had many contracted customers so the longest I had to wait for a load or unload was 6 hours. And my dispatcher had my back 100% of the time, they would never force me to drive illegally


“Do you feel that it is possible to be completely legal and get your stuff on time? “…especially right now with todays economy where there aren’t a lot of loads out there the drivers SHOULD most likely be able to get the loads there safely and with time to spare.” – 2007 , Washington State Highway Patrolman . 0:55 ​ LOOOOOOOL.


So am I understanding correctly that the cops are (were?) just regularly extorting money from truck drivers? Cool cool cool…
