    I have no idea what point you're trying to make in your very confusing post.

    PS - I've gone to wakes/funerals for quite a number of driver friends over the years. I never wanted to be at any of them only because I never wanted them to happen in the first place. Nobody does.

    I was out of that terminal, and I was so disgusted with those ugly vests that I never replaced mine. Everyone's like just grab a new one! They're free! Nope. I'm only going to wear one vest until I quit. And that's exactly what I did. Lol

    I just felt like the company was telling their children to be careful playing in the street. I'm an adult. I will carry a flashlight, and shine it right in the :censored: eyes of the driver if I have to. I know how to stay visible.

    The yard equipment is junk you can't find one at our barn that has a defrost that works, bad lighting just adds to the problem. If I sign up to go in the yard and hook I don't get out of the truck except for break. That's right I not doing nothing y'all make these M.F. rich.

    do they test the new hires for drug testing, some of them seem questionable about passing a drug test

    I agree my heartfelt sympathy goes out to the dock worker and his family I also pray for the hostler and the pain he is suffering as well. They call them accidents for a reason.

    That's what I was trying to get across. It's not good on either side.
    Thank you.
    Again.
    My Condolences to all involved.

    Accidents happen, but a very good question on your part. Was he texting, on the phone, keying or writing down the moves? Still no reason not to see him walking. History of driving to fast? von.
