This month, September 16th – 22nd, Riverside Transport, Inc. celebrated National Truck Driver Appreciation Week. The terminals hosted a multitude of events to recognize their drivers ranging from prize drawings to a pig roast.
Every day of the week Riverside Transport, Inc. conducted vehicle inspections on tractors, driver credentials, permit books & logbooks. All of the drivers that completed an inspection had their name entered in a drawing to win a laptop!

Lately, I have heard many company drivers tell me that they started out being a lease driver, only to find that they weren’t making any money so they gave up their lease and became a company driver. There are too many drivers out there saying that they don’t know how lease drivers make any money and I tell them that I have no complaints. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not making money hand over fist, but I am surviving out here. If I wanted to put a little more effort into “MY BUSINESS” I could probably find more ways to save money, but I’m surviving and happy now, with very little effort.

By now, many of your now that I am not only a lease operator with RTI, I am also an ex-Deputy Sheriff with a specialty in Commercial Vehicle Safety. I also try to keep up on the current regulations as well as the proposed regulations pertaining to the operation of commercial motor vehicles. With that being said, I have been asked to give the “drivers’ perspective” of the proposed changes to the DOT Hours of Service regulations. Of course, this perspective is solely mine, however, I believe I address it from a common sense angle that most, if not all, drivers would agree with.
Oil is everywhere. When we say everywhere, we mean EVERYWHERE. It’s common to think that we only use it in our cars, trucks and the like, but our society has built a world around this precious fossil fuel and the following list will help you understand just how dependent we really are on the “black gold”.
As you peruse the list, consider the implications on society if one day we woke up and there was no more oil!

Finally, the moment you have all been waiting for, my second article in which I said I would tell you how to avoid citations while just trying to make a living, driving a truck down the road. I guess before I get started I better put a little disclaimer in here first:
The information I present here is just a guideline to help avoid contacts with law enforcement and to minimize the damage once you have been stopped. I present this information just as a tool and as such, I take no responsibility if you are stopped and get a citation or any other action against you, even if you follow my suggestions. This information is not necessarily in strict compliance with Riverside Transports company policies either, it is just basic real world common sense. With this said, let me give you my three general suggestions to avoid a citation.”
