One other thing that Stevens won't tell you. When asked if you had to accept a load that was over weight, the reps at Stevens said that they may tell you to take the load anyway and that they would pay for any tickets.
What they don't mention is that if a drunk driver (or any type circumstance) hits you and someone is injured or killed, it is your fault because you are over weight; a DOT violation. Remember, you are the professional driver.
You may find yourself in court on charges of manslaughter or homicide. And if you refuse to run a load, welllllllll, remember, you get paid by the mile and if you *** off the dispatcher, you will not get any loads, or they will be crappy ones.
