    No more favorable treatment for running over each other and or punishment for personality conflicts.

    you still need to call in projections and that personal interaction with central. They do need to computerize the whole thing.

    to do it right, you have to make your cut times. I know how difficult it is without enough manpower. If you put more men on the street or dock you get punished for it. problem is you cant win no matter, so you give up.

    That's easy. Just program it to always be slow and inconsistent. It'll be frustrating drivers in no time when phone calls to correct mistakes go unanswered.
