  • Cell Phone Trouble

    On Monday, March 24, 2021, Mike's Android cell phone started acting weird and it impacted his ability to make deliveries.

    Thinking it was a hardware issue, Mike took his cell phone to our local Verizon store and a worker there told him that Google had crashed!

    According to the information he received -- which worked for Mike -- here was how to fix his Android device:
    1. Navigate to Play Store app
    2. Search for Android System WebView
    3. Select the "Update" option
    4. Repeat these steps for Google Chrome

    The explanation on the page reads:

    "This issue starts with Android throwing up prompts that warn how apps 'keep closing.' Applications that are in the background and not currently open are also affected."

    So, the next time you encounter something like this, consider updating your phone first before taking it in for servicing.

    That could save you a lot of time, effort, money -- or all three!

Earn More, Save More

There are regular inspections that are done on Commercial Motor Vehicles (CMVs), including:

  • those that are done for overall safety and

  • those specifically targeting truck brakes.

As we've reported in the past, it is far better to keep one's truck in top order and not pour "money down the drain" on something safety related that was totally preventable.

Company truckers who sign a "condition of employment" that they will personally pay the fine for safety violations may not realize just how expensive some of those violations can be, especially if the trucks they are driving are put out of service and mechanics have to travel from a distance to fix/repair it/them.

Even with one's careful preparations, sometimes things can go wrong -- expensive things.

It's always wise to consider not having to rely on a single source of income to meet one's needs.

Consider learning how to earn a second income from the cab of your truck.

Even though it is officially spring, don't be surprised if you see snow in certain places in the continental USA.

Please watch weather patterns and take precautions not to be caught in treacherous weather.

You are the one who is in charge of operating your truck, so evaluate carefully whether or not it is safe to travel when weather turns bad (or is forecast to turn bad).

To all of our readers who are professional truck drivers, we wish you safe travels and lots of money saving opportunities on the road!
