So let me get this right. To deliver pizza you have to have a Class E driver license. However, to be a government courier (delivering packages), driving around selling Avon or Mary Kay, being a contract Fedex delivery driver, to use your personal vehicle as a U.S. Census taker, to pull a 20 foot travel trailer on the highways, to drive a Winnebago or to drive around putting up campaign signs up for local politicians you just need a regular license. Sounds to me like the legislature got their head locked up their arse dreaming up laws.

Is the Blue Springs cop screwing this guy's wife too? WTF?

In Kansas delivery jobs such at a pizza joint are listed as a non CDL type job. Missouri has some weird laws for their driver's license. But the cop was right in issuing the ticket and Pappa Johns is very wrong in not seeing that their drivers have such. They know they are wrong and thats why they are ignoring the issue. But you can get a Class E for less than 20 bucks, what is scary is what your insurance company will want when the find out what you are doing. I use my POV for work and because of so I have to pay little over 200 a year more for such. But if anything ever happened and it's proven you weres doing a job related action in your POV it could get costly and open you up to possible civil suits.

This is how all these companies save money by forcing you to use your car which is cheaper than them maintaining a vehicle to do such.
