Terminated and BLACKLISTED from the Trucking Industry for making Videos.

by Jimmy Moore
(Clayton, NC 27520)

Hello, you probably of heard of me, my name is Jimmy Moore I host a YouTube page called turfnetworkchannel to make a long story short I made plenty of Trucking videos during my time as a driver from 1997 my days as a Dick Simon Driver till Baylor Trucking Nov 15th 2013.

The Company Baylor Trucking decided to fire me cause they viewed a video that they said was unsafe. I was making a Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich while driving down the interstate.

I don't care who you are if your a Truck driver eating anddriving is second nature. But to Baylor Trucking they seem to believe that this was reckless driving habit.

They were also kind enough to download the video illegally then share it with the Dept of Motor Carrier Safety Administration then put it on my DAC report.

Let me just say that it has been one hell of a ride for me this year 2014. They ended my Career of 16 years, I currently have a Clean MVR no Accidents no Tickets for the past 16 years safe driving. And I can't get hired at any trucking company not even Carolina Cargo. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration & the Dept of Transportation along with
Baylor Trucking copied all my trucking videos and used it AGAINST me.

Talking about truckers pay the cost of living and overall regulations with elogs and substationary files pertaining with the OOIDA. They banded me from the industry cause they feel im a threat to all the new Drivers entering into this industry.

I still have some videos up and I will not remove them its my Constitutional Right to talk about it.

The bigger picture is if it can happen to you - it can happen to anyone. Obviously too much control over your longevity in the trucking industry is in other people's hands, and even with a good dac you can be blacklisted.

Why would video tape not just making a sandwich while driving, but eating it. No doubt you have to see that was not a smart move on your part. To all truckers on YouTube. . Edit before posting.
