For others who are not familiar with them, they are a US transport company whose drivers have a bad reputation.
In the trucking field, they are(were?) the largest 'training' company. Average new hire was either just out of school or less than 3mo experience. One of the few companies that hire drivers under the age of 21. Statistics show under the age of 25, under 6mo experience is when the most accidents occur.
Reputation is justified for new drivers.

Yep, google images for "Swift driver" and you'll see lots of fun photos.


And quite few with the meme:
Q. What's the difference between a Swift driver and a toilet?
