"Banned toll road" for an independent contractor??We get detention although it isn't guaranteed for us as it is with the company drivers. We have a couple of customers that have a grease period of 24 hours before they pay detention, but outside of those we do get it and often more for our time than the company drivers because we get 100 percent of what's paid, they get a set amount because it's guaranteed. I get paid empty or loaded exactly the same. And all my tolls are reimbursed as long as the company route uses those toll roads running empty without a route from customer to customer I get reimbursed for my tolls as long as it isn't a banned toll road. I average between 2800 and 3500 miles per week.
