Sounds like alot dosen't it? When I drove for Werner my mileage pay stopped at the town limits although I was still driving. It might take 2 hours through Houston and I wasn't getting paid.

53 cents a mile at 60mph is about $30/hr. Way less if you hit traffic or wind up in a city.

In a hypothetical job, you could start off in a city and travel 10 miles in the hour it takes to get out of town, drive for 8 hours at 60mph, and then hit your destination city and get stuck in traffic again for an hour to go 10 miles.

That works out to $26.50/hr.

That's only when you're moving, there can be a lot of down time at both ends and things like scales and fuel stops that eat up your time on the job you're not getting paid for.

These screen grabs are from a YouTube video and self evidently the quoted vehicle is of interest to the police.

Please could you tell me the significance of 'Amber Alert'?

Amber Alert means that a child has been abducted, or is missing.

Thanks for the link Mr G, I'm grateful to you.

My assumption was that it was one of a number of coloured alerts each with a defined meaning.

There are also Silver Alerts for missing old folks with dementia. But those are the only two.

For the sake of completeness, it was from this video at about the 2 min 49 sec mark.
