    Older Drivers & Discrimination

    Older Drivers & Discrimination

    Older Drivers & Discrimination. The unwritten rule in trucking is sad. Most carriers won't talk about it but it exists everywhere. Discrimination! True stuff. Did you know that many carriers have an age maximum they go by. It is unwritten but it is there. Most carriers go by the magic number of 70 years of age.







    What am I talking about? Most carriers and their insurance companies are scared of older drivers. Most look at older drivers as, a possible heart attack behind the wheel. Drivers that are older, tend to need more maintenance. Doctor visits which also means less productive. Older drivers are a future cost in medical bills and the list goes on and on. The question is, is this wrong? Tune in and hear the latest episode of TalkCDL Trucking Podcast. Older Drivers & Discrimination

    Ice Pick Bandit Is Getting Brazen

    Ice Pick Bandit Is Getting Brazen

    Ice Pick Bandit Is Getting Brazen. This last victim marks the 15th semi truck with flat tires. Thats right, the ice pick bandit is back. Seems Georgia is his favorite place to attack. Once again, an unaware trucker had his tires destroyed while sleeping on an off ramp on Interstate 75 in Georgia.







    The Ice Pick Bandit has moved on from flattening tires to cutting brake lines. That's right, the bandit has gotten more brazen. He has now marked himself as "attempted murder'. After all, when you cut the brakes of a semi truck, you are risking death, so murder will be the correct charge once we catch this very brave, twisted individual.
