What trucking company has the worst drivers?

There are really only two regular businesses which I consider to have “terrible” drivers: Con-way and FedEx, both of which do not make busineaa decisions based on appearances. They use an automated engine, photo recognition software and CB radio to get around their towns. This is working very well for them because many companies now use this system as a way of managing their fleet size and routes in order for to them keep costs low. This results in more miles per gallon with better fuel efficiency because they do not operate with full crews most of the time, again contributing to their cost savings opportunities. It has put a lot of truckers (and people such as myself) out of work in my industry or at least at non-“driving” jobs but they seem perfectly willing to pay me less each month than the cost benefits alone of living in my house vs a hotel or apartment  while on the road home at night… can you blame them?
