I think it should be gold flake. A pilot should be able to see that.

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.

No, it doesn't sound like a lot to me.

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.
