I recently commented on internet comments in my Stockton Blog. In this instance, two trucking companies and their drivers are being sued over a 2008 accident on I-15 in Las Vegas in which two honeymooners outside their stranded vehicle were struck and killed. Truck drivers have a variety of responsibilities that many people are unfamiliar with when performing their job. It’s not just driving, but maintenance and reporting requirements just to name a couple. However, the comment made to this particular incident struck me as very specific and therefore more insightful.
Being a truck driver for 30 years may I say that it is common knowledge that JB Hunt has the lowest hiring standards and very poorly trained drivers. They are basically the laughing stock of the industry. Although it could have happened to anyone, I was reading it in my head and thought it must have been a JB Hunt driver. Oops I hate when I am right.
