    What happens when say a full time qualified cover driver receives a speeding ticket in their personal car off the clock?
  2. You'll continue to be a cover driver, but you won't be eligible to go full time.
  3. I missed that you were already a FT cover driver. I don't believe anything happens. just be sure to report it on the form that you have to sign every year, otherwise it would be dishonesty if they checked.

    Pay the fine, slow down and report it when asked.

    And I don't work for UPS,But I believe that the law states that you have to report a ticket in a timely matter to your safety dept. (I'm talking DOT law)
    Fight the ticket at ALL COSTS. Get reduced to maybe a non MOVER. But FIGHT IT!!!!
    Sometimes depending on where you got the ticket,you can work things out.It's going to cost you MONEY,But that's better than a mark on your record...

    You just have to tell UPS on the yearly driving record form you fill out, unless you have your license suspended or revoked.

    Take the defensive driving class and have the points removed from your license.

    I knew a guy who was selling for a Chevy dealer when those first came out. He stopped by the bar one night driving a demonstrator. By brother and I each bought him a beer, borrowed the keys and proceeded to beat the living crap out of it.

    I pity the person that eventually bought it.

    Plus the Olds Omega. Can't recall any other Gm derivatives. CADILLAC CIMARRON!

    Cimarron wasn't an X-Car like the Citation and Omega was it?

    1BROWNWRENCH Amateur Malthusian

    Pretty sure it was. Or a J car. Still crap.

    Cimarron was the Cavalier equivilent. When I worked on vehicles back then, we called them "Cava-llacs"

    My wife's step brothers always joke about her flying a Citation off a railroad grade.

    Definitely a J car. Saw a low mileage one at an estate sale years ago. No takers.
