I drive ISO tanks and have been with First Choice for 9 years now. Today, I’m hauling pyridine. It’s a flammable corrosive. There are so many types of trucking, but tankers are the most dangerous. The people you want to put in your tanker need to be extra attentive— extra responsible. They need to be attentive to your surroundings, other people, the product you’re hauling. There’s nothing like tanking. It’s dangerous, but safe if you know what you’re doing.
I don’t call this a job— I don’t just drive. I like smiling, I like having a good time. I’m easy to get along with. Nothing gets me angry anymore. I support neighborhood groups that are doing something worthwhile within the community. I have a personal interest in the schools my children attend. But when I’m driving, my life is focused around the job that I do. I don’t listen to music, or the radio, or smoke or anything like that. I’m just paying attention. There’s enough to keep you occupied when you’re hauling material like this.
