started with prime in 2002, had a total of 4 leases with them ending in 2010. in total worked there just over 4 years. 8 month lease, 15 month lease, 36 month lease turned in after 2008, did not complete. came back in 2010, 8 months in to a 10 month lease. prime cancelled my lease. situation was a such. 

dropped trailer at Burlington coat factory n.j. ware house, 8 am sat. didn't pickup again at Burlington until Sunday at 3 pm. bob tailed to truck stop for shower, wasting time, later asked permission to park on the property of a restaurant /bar over night, a mile from,  Burlington, said i would be gone by the time they reopen that Sunday. after a 20 hr day of driving, yes i had a trainee. we were going to stay at this place for the night get some sleep and get breakfast in the morning head to Burlington for the next load. but at the end of the night i had to pay the bill and my personal account was short,

so i called prime for an advance, no big deal did it all the time. she asked me if i was drinking and i said yes, I've had a few, at that point she hung up. the next morning on my way to get coffee i was pulled over by 3 cops, they had a report that i was drinking and driving. i said no but had a few last night, the cop said even i went and had a few after work, well i guess i'm not allowed. they released me and then called dispatch, he said park the truck, i said no and drove it to the terminal in pittston, pa. and turned it in after going to my father house in scranton, pa. to get all my personals out of the truck.

there was no problems except me calling prime after i had a few drinks off duty, this could have been at my own house truck in the drive way. if you think you own it like a lease on a car you are terrible wrong.

Correct alcohol rule .

AUTHOR: RichardG - ()

Direct from FMCSA § 382.207Pre-duty use.No driver shall perform safety-sensitive functions within four hours after using alcohol. No employer having actual knowledge that a driver has used alcohol within four hours shall permit a driver to perform or continue to perform safety-sensitive functions.

That's 4 hours , not 24
