Cheaper than the DUI if he had reported the accident when it happened.

Sounds like he's the real Meqdadi of truck drivers.

Trucking industry is being dragged down by stuff like this. I'm sorry that it sounds racist, but spend some time on the road around trucks and you will see the truth. The worst looking, ratty, unsafe trucks are driven and/or owned by "foreigners" who have come for a while to make their money and send it home. They do not seem in the least bit interested in safety or image, just making money off the Americans and spending as little of it as they can here. Same goes with all the truck stops being run by foreigners. They pay as little as they can get away with, including not paying fuel taxes. When they get shut down, they just send another family member in to run it as long as they can. It is reality, and then we wonder where our jobs are.

There's a good reason it sounds racist.

hey, this was right down the road from me!

A resulting inspection found an outdated log book, a false record of duty, and tire violations that placed the truck out of service and required that it be towed, police said.

Meqdadi was also cited for ignoring several "no trucks" signs posted at the shopping center, police said.


wow. he went out of his way to get slammed by the cops.

He's lucky he only got the $4600 fine (and impounded truck). He should have his license pulled. He obviously can't drive (or read) for shiat.

Wait, it DOESN'T have to do with Chicago?

We've been living in this house for a year, and still get City of Chicago parking ticket notices for someone who used this address to register a cab company, apparently many, many years ago. They started sending stuff with a law firm return address (despite me sending every single one back as "forward or return to sender"). So whatever they plan on collecting, it's worth whatever the law firm is charging. Freaking amazing.
 
2012-09-16 02:31:20 PM
Meqdadi was later apprehended by the Grammar Police and charged for having a Q not followed by a U in his name.

Came here to say something like this. When I interned with a PD a few years ago, one of our calls was to pick up a guy who turned himself in for a hit and run (scraped up another vehicle, no injuries IRRC). We could smell the booze on his breath, even though it was about 10 hours later. But since he didn't get caught, I'm sure he didn't get as badly punished as he would have been...

Best part is that he was maybe 10 miles from multiple truck stops. Anybody who ever drove through that area can attest to the mind-boggling level of truck traffic because I-76 and I-81, two major roads for transporting things between inland states and the coast, meet right in Carlisle.

Practice.
 
2012-09-16 02:44:36 PM
putting the word commercial next to the word truck would have explained the story quicker. unless he is a owner operator and can say fark you for whatever it is worth before he never gets a contract again as a gypsy the fleet owner is going to destroy him if the trailer had a load. a suspected dui and impounded load. you will be lucky if you get a job running agriculture from the field to the local packing plant at $1 above minimum wage.
 
2012-09-16 02:47:48 PM
Done in one. He's lucky the Carlisle cops didn't find him earlier or he'd be in the hoosegow.

Not all of us truck drivers are idiots, although it is the ones like the guy in the story that further the stereotype. The comment section on the story is priceless. Granted when I have been out on I40 here in Oklahoma I have only seen a few truck drivers who are of a foreign nationality. The ones I have had pass me or I have passed up or seen at the truck stops seem to be very professional and their trucks don't appear to be no more worse for wear than some of the others I have seen driven by "Muricans"

Meqdadi admitted he struck the pole the night before and failed to report the accident, police said.

Carlisle Commons appears to be private property. And I'm not sure how it is in PA but I'm pretty sure in VA you have a 24-hour grace period to report accidents.

The situation's pretty much the same here in the UK, where Le Shuttle give the entirety of Europe a straight road (so to speak) to our green and pleasant land. Polish, Romanian, Slovakian, Slovenian, Turkish, Czech (amongst others) trucks clog our roads with dangerously unsafe vehicles, drivers, and driving standards. I live in Kent, and the M20 starts just outside Dover for the Ferries, and the Eurotunnel trains kick the trucks off at Cheriton. They're all supposed to be governed by the FTA (freight transport association), and we're all supposed to adhere to the same rules, but 90% of private foreign trucks hitting our roads are in a condition that would incur at the very least, a corrective order.

Many's the time I've seen the shreeded remains of a dead tyre on the hard shoulder, only to follow the debris up to the offsise trailer wheel of a camion from the Former Soviet Union,

Watch I-35 between Laredo and San Antonio. I used to wonder how some of the trucks I saw made it as far up the interstate as they did without exploding, much less passing the border checkpoints and TxDOT checkpoints.

The officer followed an oil trail from behind the truck to a pole in the parking lot that had been damaged. The pole had red paint from the truck, which was also damaged and had yellow paint from the pole, police said.

Pretty sure that "accident" hurt his own truck more than it did the pole. I'd bust him for all the other stuff though.

I used to live outside Harrisburg and would occasionally go to Carlisle for dinner. I don't think there are as many tickets and boots in NYC as there are in Carlisle...

That depends on with whom you are filing. Typically, police reports are done on scene and so, if needed, should be immediate. Reports filed with the DMV are a separate issue and and can range up to 10 days depending on state. And all that is variable based on the dollar value of the damage done (some states won't care for a DMV report if the damage was less than $300, others won't care so long as it's less than $1000, etc).

In an ideal world, that would be 100% true. In reality if he is an owner operator he will be able to lease onto another company almost immediately because there were no moving violations issued, it was all logbook and condition fines and not reporting an accident (sound like he did not actually LEAVE the scene of the accident so no biggie there). If he's not an owner operator it still wouldn't affect him that much unless the company reports it all to one of the driver reporting services (sort of like chex systems for truckers and just as hard to get your name off the list). Even if they did he would still get hired by a mom and pop outfit because they need an ass in the seat, and any ass will do so long as they keep the truck moving.

What he did would get him charged with hit-and-run in my state and appears to violate Pennsylvania law as well. Hit-and-run also applies to private property open to public use, like a mall parking lot. Conviction results in a one year mandatory suspension for a commercial driver.

75 PACS 3745:
The driver of any vehicle which collides with or is involved in an accident with any vehicle or other property which is unattended resulting in any damage to the other vehicle or property shall immediately stop the vehicle at the scene of the accident or as close thereto as possible and shall then and there either locate and notify the operator or owner of the damaged vehicle or other property of his name, address, information relating to financial responsibility and the registration number of the vehicle being driven or shall attach securely in a conspicuous place in or on the damaged vehicle or other property a written notice giving his name, address, information relating to financial responsibility and the registration number of the vehicle being driven and shall without unnecessary delay notify the nearest office of a duly authorized police department.

no offense taken but I love reading comments about stories like this and it turns into a trucker bashing thread. even better are the ones where there is a story about an accident involving a truck and somehow it is always the trucker's fault, even though you may have witnesses saying a motorist switched lanes without signaling or slammed on their brakes or merged onto the highway right in front of a semi already up to highway speed.

Oh and when I have a blowout I always try to get stopped and remove the gator I dropped to prevent damage to other vehicles. Don't know if it's the law or not, but I try to be courteous.
