An owner/operator sent this message via Qualcomm to Jeff Carlisle.
Just did the good deed of the day. While doing a load check on I-29 Exit 84 (Mound City, MO) I stepped on a pile of credit cards and driver’s license. I looked around and saw a bent guard rail. I picked up the cards and drove to St. Joseph, MO to get a cell signal. I called Mound city police and they informed me there had been a terrible accident the previous week.
They sent a car to look over the scene for more cards and put me through to the Missouri Highway Patrol. They had me bring the cards to the St. Joseph weight station. I gave them a detailed history, gave my name, phone number and address. I also gave them my dispatchers name, your card and Ken’s card. He said the info was routine but in 30 years on DOT he’d never seen a company as honest as Bennett.
He said there will be an extended report and would try to get us a copy. News outlets will be notified and Bennett will be put in the running for the billboard at 70 & 435 on the west side of Kansas for one of those “Honesty & Integrity, Pass It On” campaigns.
That’s pretty cool for just doing the right thing, huh? And possibly free advertising for a year, too. Wow!
This is a testament to our employees, agents and owner/operators out in the field.
