    My wife has a masters degree and I more than doubled what she made last year. If minimum wage goes to $15 an hour in NY a college degree with 50k or more debt when finished will begin defeating the purpose of higher education. I gotta renew my license this year. It may be the last time I do for CDL purposes if the draconian rules keep coming. My kids will be old enough by then for me to explore other possible options.

    I ran the shop at Land air for 1 year and was terminated for reporting equipment and tires were disappearing from the shop which the terminal manager was the only one with the extra set of keys to the shop, also they wanted us to check all outgoing trailers and make sure they had a valid inspection decal on them without doing the inspection. Every time something would be stolen the terminal manager would claim that the cameras went down. They get what they deserve.

    I agree, YRC is not much better with the junk they put on the roads. Lucky they took the CSA data down as YRC did not have good data...

    I don't understand what is the violation for using a different truck??
    The USDOT # for Land Air is OOS as long as you do not use that USDOT # there is no violation???
    if they give freight to a cartage to interline carrier there is no violation..
    No one can use that USDOT # until the OOS order is lifted..

    you are correct about INTERLINING, unfortunately, you do realize, AS a land air employee, with their freight on your personal vehicle, they are going to look at you delivering stuff in your ford as skirting their out of service order, correct? unless ALL the employee's doing it have registered their vehicles as Commercial motor vehicles with the DOT, and received the appropriate USDOT number?

    A personal vehicle is not regulated, thus no USDOT# is needed.
    The real risk is in the event of an accident, who is insuring the vehicle. Worse yet, will the drivers insurance not cover an incident due it being a commercial transaction vs. private/individual use???? if that happens the driver is screwed and responsible to all liability.

    oh, so you are realizing that its a bad idea? a personal vehicle stops being a personal vehicle when you are using it for profit, to deliver freight. if you wanted jump thru the hoops of registering your pickup with the dot, you would be ok. but how much would you be in the hole? otherwise, its illegal...

    Understand, but that is irrelevant when it comes to the USDOT Rules. Either you run compliant or not.
    YRC was above the CSA Intervention Threshold on Vehicle Maintenance, I am not sure if Land Air was or not???
    No matter... if the USDOT has their eyes on a carrier, the carrier may see an audit. hence Land Air's issue. They had an audit that did not go well a few years ago.
    YRC continues to put garbage on the roads, just visit the YRC Freight and the YRC Regionals Boards and read about the junk they put on the road each day..
    if we can read it so does the USDOT....

    It is not illegal with the DOT, you may/may not have an insurance issue. I do not know about the insurance arrangements.
    You seem to be gleeful about this company shutting down?
    Good people are losing their jobs???

    land air will save a lot of money now. if they were planning to shut the doors .they will not have to pay the (warn act) 60 days of pay for all the drivers its the best way out for them

    Hey SuperCourse, Why don't you post you post your real name if your going to make comments that you no nothing about ! I worked there and saw first hand what was going on and when I reported it my car got trashed my wallet was stolen from my tool box and of course the cameras went down when that happened too ! More stuff walked out of that place then you could imagine ! and the cameras went down every time ! Why do you tihink they sent a notice out for employes not to talk to me about what was really going on ! Just like that driver that crashed and burned in to the OSHA offices, the terminal manager new he was working full time during the day driving a taxi and still hired him to line haul at night. Or the drivers that I failed on there road test and he still signed off on them and hired them and the next thing you no they slammed into the back of a van and sent people to the hospital in critical condition. Don't comment on something you have any idea about and be a man and stop hiding behind your fake ass SuperCourse ! The only thing "Super" about you is that you have no idea what is going on and just running your Supermouth !
