Hello truckers , Thank you for this helpful forum . Recently I was put our of service at DOT scale and I get violation for improper load securement ( not secured dunnage – 4×4 wood under trailer ) .
Could you please explain how this violation can affect my career when it comes to future employment at OTR or Local trucking job or how it can affect even me becoming owner op. or having my own authority ?
I’m sorry I don’t know. My opinion is it will not be a big problem. It is considered a Negative but no trucking company I know of only hires drivers with a perfect record. It’s importance it is greatest effect for 12 months, and has less effect on CSA/PAP score over next 2 years thereafter.
