This web site was created in 1996. It had a different name at that time. Updated 2003 but same info. I felt it necessary to warn men and women of the pitfalls awaiting them and is it worth it? his site by learning how to script Html and a lot of cut and paste. Lot of work in these pages even info from other countries in the world. People in trucking and transportation are good hard working men and women no matter what country you are in. Big company's have exploited new drivers for a long time. Keep your pay down, you need experience or you are too new and we have to work you for two years and then maybe?

New drivers take a bigger risk and they drive the same trucks?
