    In this case it was a ready mix concrete truck that flipped. Not a cement tanker.

    Concrete truck drivers (mixer drivers) are not paid by the load. They are either paid by the hour or some companies give them the option of a salary.
    Cement tankers are more than likely paid by the load depending on whether they are independent or driving for a company.

    Can we please get to the bottom of this? Was it a cement truck or a concrete truck? Will someone please educate us on the difference, so that I can sleep tonight..

    cement truck drivers are some of the fastest and most aggressive drivers on the road. If I'm not mistaken, I think they are paid per load delivered. which means more loads delivered, the higher their paycheck. this is a topic that should be investigated.

    Can't we all just get along?

    It's a see-ment truck! Where'd you grow up, anyway?

    You are wrong it is cement, which is one ingredient of concrete. A mixer
    hauls concrete a tanker hauls cement
    to a concrete plant to produce concrete.
    This is the case no matter where you grow up.

    It's a concrete truck not a "cement" truck.
