North Central Iowa
We have trucks that come across our scale that are getting recycled cardboard. Most of them can't speak English and are just following the GPS. Somebody is getting paid big time to falsify the test for these guys to get CDL's.
An example this week a driver with a load for the Mennonites here in Floyd Co, Iowa was trying in the night to find there place of business out in the country. Just east of their place the county took out an old bridge 20 years ago and has had road closed singes in the road since then. This guy drove around the singes and around the old bridge abutments and into the creek because his GPS told him that was the way to go. So he calls 911 and they send my friend that owns the wrecker service. Now we are just starting to flood here and this guy doesn't have any money so they call the owner and he doesn't have any money cause he says he just leases the truck and to call the owners. Now this is a 2019 Freightliner. The company that owns the truck says its not their problem as its leased out to the other guy who is supposes to have insurance. So since nobody is going to pay the bill he left it. The next morning the water is running thru the cab. Truck sat in the water for 3 days. This is what is becoming of our trucking industry according to my friend with the tow shop.
