    Per Employee Manual

    Serious Accidents or Serious Rule Violations

    Serious preventable accidents or safety rule violations that do not fall into the category of major may subject the driver to
    a minimum one -day suspension and retraining. Two serious accidents or safety rule violations in a 36-month period may
    subject the driver to termination.

    The following are some examples:

    Equipment uncouple/dropped trailer; 
    Pulling away from a dock without verifying that it is safe to do so; 
    Operating on a public street or highway with trailer door open; 
    Not properly parking/setting the brakes which results in a roll-a-way; 
    Rear end accident; 
    Using a communication device while operating a commercial motor vehicle; 
    An accident resulting from evasive action to avoid a rear end collision.

    I have a real problem with the last one. I will always take evasive actions to avoid a rear end collision.

    How the hell do you do that? Avoid getting hit in the rear. Face it, some people are just stupid drivers.

    The rule pertains to you having an accident avoiding rear-ending another vehicle. ( i.e. sign, mailbox, guardrail, fixed object )
