7. ADDITIONAL PROVISIONS

a. No Liability: In no event will DISPATCHER be liable for any incidental, consequential, or indirect damages for the loss of profits, or business interruption arising out of the use of the service.

b. Loading Procedures: Commercial vehicles must be loaded in such a manner as to prevent its cargo from leaking, spilling, blowing or falling from the vehicle. The cargo must be immobilized or secured to prevent shifting to the extent that the vehicle's stability or maneuverability is affected. All vehicle structures, systems, parts and components used to secure cargo must be in proper working order with no damaged or weakened components that will adversely affect their performance. Cargo must be firmly immobilized or secured on or within a vehicle by structures of adequate strength, dunnage or dunnage bags, shoring bars, tie-downs or a combination of these. Articles of cargo that are likely to roll must be restrained by chocks, wedges, a cradle or equivalent means to prevent rolling. Federal regulations provide for specific means of securing logs, building products, metal coils, paper rolls, concrete pipes, intermodal containers, automobiles, heavy equipment, crushed vehicles, and boulders.

Cargo must be secured so that when a vehicle decelerates at a rate of 20 feet per second, the cargo will remain on the vehicle and will not penetrate the vehicle's front-end structure.

Any vehicle having a load or component which extends beyond the sides more than 4 inches or more than 4 feet beyond the rear must have the extremities marked with a red or orange fluorescent warning flag. If the projecting load is 2 feet in width or less, only one flag is required at the extreme rear of the load. If the projecting load is greater than 2 feet in width, two flags must be used at the extreme width and length on each side of the load.

c. Responsibilities for Proper Loading (Disclaimer): A driver cannot operate a commercial vehicle unless (1) the cargo is properly distributed and adequately secured, (2) the means of fastening the cargo is secured, and (3) the cargo does not obscure the driver's view or interfere with the movement of his arms or legs. A driver must assure himself that the load is adequately secured before he drives the vehicle and must examine the cargo and its load-securing devices within the first 50 miles after beginning a trip and adjust the load-securing devices as needed. The driver must also reexamine the cargo and its securing devices when he makes a change of his duty status, after the vehicle has been driven for three hours, or after the vehicle has been driven 150 miles whichever comes first. The load inspection procedures do not apply to a sealed trailer when the driver has been ordered not to open it or to a trailer that has been loaded in a manner that makes inspection of the cargo impracticable.

If a member of the public is injured because of improperly loaded cargo, both the shipper who loaded the cargo and the carrier may be held liable for the injury. A shipper that assumes responsibility for loading the vehicle can be held liable for improperly securing a load under a common law theory of negligence, and federal regulations will provide evidence of the proper standard of care to be utilized by the shipper in loading the vehicle.

When the driver himself is injured in an accident, the shipper cannot be held liable for the improper loading of the vehicle unless the loading defects are latent and concealed and cannot be discerned by ordinary observation by the agents of the carrier. In determining if the defect in loading is patent and should have been discovered by the driver, a court will take into consideration the experience of the driver and whether the driver is given assurances by the shipper's employees that there is no defect in the loading of the cargo. A motor carrier cannot be held liable for improperly loading a sealed trailer since the driver does not have the opportunity to inspect the load. When a person is injured during the loading or unloading process at the shipper or consignee's facility, the trucking company's liability will be determined according to the rules applicable to the facility owner, and the company will be subject to the same liability or freedom from liability as the owner.

d. Non-solicitation. During the term of your services agreement, and for a period of one (1) year immediately thereafter, You agree not to solicit any employee or independent contractor of the Company on behalf of any other business enterprise, nor shall you induce any employee or independent contractor associated with VVT to terminate or breach an employment, contractual or other relationship with the Company, for the purpose of accepting an offer of employment, or any other purpose whatsoever. In the event that Carrier breaches this Paragraph 7.d, Carrier acknowledges, agrees and assumes that they will be liable to VVT for fine of no less than $100,000.00, and/or, alternatively, shall have the option of buying out that VVT Group employee’s or independent contractor’s contract by paying an amount equivalent to that employee or independent contractor’s one year’s salary or earnings, which shall be computed by the employee or independent contractor’s average monthly income and multiplying that number by 12. The average monthly income shall be based on the employee or independent contractor’s previous invoice and earnings which shall be provided by VVT Group.

e. Soliciting Customers After Termination of Agreement. For a period of two (2) years following the termination of your agreement and your relationship with the VVT, You shall not, directly or indirectly, disclose to any person, firm or corporation the names or addresses of any of the customers or clients of the Company or any other information pertaining to them. Neither shall you call on, solicit, take away, or attempt to call on, solicit, or take away any VVT customer of on whom you have called or with whom you became acquainted during the term of your agreement with VVT, as the direct or indirect result of your agreement with VVT. Carrier acknowledges that the violation of this paragraph would cause irreparable harm to VVT Group, and accordingly agrees and accepts that any violations of the afore-mentioned prohibitions of this paragraph shall subject the Carrier to a penalty and fine owed to VVT Group in an amount $100,000.00, or the maximum penalty allowable under 820 ILCS 90, Illinois Freedom to Work Act.

9. Severability.

To the extent that any provision of this Agreement may be held to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, such provision shall become ineffective as to all matters within the jurisdiction of that court. The court’s holding, however, shall not be treated as affecting the validity or enforceability of any other provision of this Agreement, nor as affecting the validity or enforceability of any part of this Agreement in other jurisdictions.

10. Waiver.

Neither the failure of a Party to exercise any right, power or privilege under this Agreement, nor its delay in any such exercise, shall operate as a waiver of that right, power or privilege. No such waiver shall be binding on either Party unless it is in writing and signed by a Designated Contact of the Party against which the waiver is asserted. No such waiver on one occasion shall preclude subsequent full enforcement of a Party’s rights, powers and privileges under this Agreement or at law or in equity.

11. Successors and Assigns.

This Agreement shall be binding on, and shall inure to the benefit of, both Parties as well as their respective successors and permitted assigns.

12. Counterparts.

This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, any and all of which shall constitute one and the same instrument.

13. Governing Law; Jurisdiction; and, Venue:

This agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with laws of the State of Illinois without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of laws provision or rule (whether of the State of Illinois or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than those of the State of Illinois. DISPATCHER and Carrier hereby consent to and agree to submit to the jurisdiction of the Federal and state courts located in Illinois in connection with any claims or controversies arising out of the Agreement.
