Tawanda Toney


We met Tawanda Toney at the North Lot.  She is from Montgomery, Alabama and a recent graduate of Trenholm State Technical College.  She met with PTL’s recruiter and did research on the company before becoming a driver for us.  She is excited about working for an Employee-Owned company, something you don’t see at many trucking companies today.

As a recent graduate she is looking forward to seeing different parts of the United States.   So far she has enjoyed meeting so many people from so many different places that she would not have gotten to meet otherwise.

Welcome to the PTL Team, Tawanda.  We look forward to helping you along the way in your journey.

TCA Scholarship

Are you someone that works within the trucking industry that is trying to further your education? Do you have family members that are going to school that could use assistance in paying for it?  If so, you should consider applying for the multiple TCA Scholarships.

TCA offers scholarships for all Truckload Carrier Association members (anyone employed with Paschall Truck Lines) and their family members. This is our very own NaviJoey on winning his scholarship.

Don't Be Surprised

A "surprise" can be a good thing like winning the lottery, or a bad thing like being involved in an accident.  While I do not have any suggestions for winning the lottery, I do have some suggestions to avoid surprises that can result in an accident. 
A malfunction of a critical part of your rig, a tire or blowout for example, or not being able to get your disabled vehicle completely of the road could contribute to an accident. You can take steps to avoid the surprise of some breakdowns. Always do through pre-trip and post-trip inspections. If you notice a strange sound, smell, etc. during your trip. immediately have it checked out. Do not wait until you are stranded.

Keep in mind there are two kinds of signs. There are signs that literally tell you of a detour, lane restriction, etc. Since such signs mat not have been there on your previous trip, you need to be observant to follow the information. There are other signs which are not written, but rather situations that indicate an approaching hazard. The beginning of a thunderstorm mat be a sign of severe wind, driving rain, etc. You should decrease your speed and increase your following distance. Anticipate conditions worsening so you will not be caught off guard.

Perhaps the most frequent surprises are caused by other drivers. We have all experienced the antics of drivers who pull out in front of us, make left turns from the right lane, run red lights and stop signs, etc. Defensive driving has taught us to look out for such actions and never to assume others will drive legally or logically. Some drivers may  not see you while others may not look your way. Try to establish eye contact with them to tell if they see you. If you do not, be ready to tap your horn, apply your brakes, or take other evasive actions.

Accident prevention can be successful if we eliminate those negative surprises that contribute to accidents.
BREAKDOWNS: Perform thorough pre-trip and post-trip inspections. If you notice a strange sound or smell, have it checked out before you are stranded.
SIGNS: Observe instructional signs. Watch for indications that conditions may worsen.
OTHER DRIVERS: Make eye contact to tell if they see you. When in doubt, tap your horn, apply your breaks, or take evasive action.
