This topic came up on my live Christmas show and was discussed some so I am going to do a video about trucker legal plans and should you get one. In a nutshell, I say yes. Many larger carriers have a plan as part of their benefits package and that is how I get mine but I would have one anyway. This doesn't mean you are some bad driver. It is like insurance. Sure, you could put the monthly fee aside in case you needed it but I think its better to just be able to make a call and have things handled. Do you just put $50/wk aside in case you need an appendectomy? No. We have insurance for that and this is the same type of thing. The courts have become defacto organizations to collect money from drivers. Your license is your job and it needs to be protected at all costs. Fight all tickets. Having a lawyer on your side to do this could be the difference between points and no points. Some of the plans I have been looking in to also will do a DATAQ challenge to have CSA points removed once a ticket is dismissed. That can save your job. Remeber, they can't guarantee an outcome and there is a wide variety of coverages and costs.
See you on the road!
Hi! Welcome. I'm Mark and I've been a professional truck driver for over 33 years, the last 19 years at the same company. It is time that drivers got paid for every minute that we work and we are treated like the licensed professionals we are.
