Should this be a safety concern that would require a policy change?

    Exactly...and the forward facing cameras for us, and all of the cameras for others, will prove to do the same seeing as how we’ve already witnessed some dangerous and egregious driving in the videos we’ve watched. Unfortunately, the cameras and other systems are here to stay because they’re needed in exchange for the passing of 33 footers by Congress.

    "You old Carolina reject", like I said, Ryder never ran discs, but I bet you know how to heat a small wire "red hot' and
    poke it thru the plastic cover, block the needle so it won't record over 55 mph.
    People like you give us good rule abiding drivers a bad rep.
    "Now you ain't gonna believe this crap", but if the bulb burned out, a dispatcher or city driver rode along, held a flashlight
    for us to observe our speed. "over"

    Anchor didn't run in the south, you might be thinking about Allied.

    So did Complete, Cassens don't sound familiar, just can't remember, it's an old age thing, I guess.
    Motor Convoy hauled Fords, we picked at those guys a lot.
    Also had Signal Delivery Ser. they were Sears Roebuck haulers.

    Kenowsha sounds faliliar, but with my memory, I wouldn't bet the farm.
    The car haulers and CXS people had a lot of poker players, did more playing than sleeping.
    Our guys always followed the rules and did not participate, or drink, just followed the rules.

    You can try to justify all the cameras and other crap all you want and even try to claim that Congress cares what we have in our trucks in regards to getting the 33 footers passed but it's just not true. Show me proof if it is.

    So, how did that red hot wire trick for them?
    The Sangamo speed-o-graph had two other needles. The one at the very top would rat out people trying to cheat.

    Have no idea, we never ran discs in ours, when Ryder sold Northeastern, we got their IHCs with the clocks
    Drivers said they blocked a speed indicator by burning a hole in the shield to block needle, don't think these had but one
    needle, not sure.

    I ran wheels, tach and speed both.
    If you tried to block the speed needle, the outermost needle would get you. It measured miles driven. All they had to do was count miles driven in a time block.

    These were 1953 or 54 vintage, once we got them they never saw another disc.
    Have no idea how they worked.

And I know Mr. Breeze that your right you guys always followed the rules (block the doors open so you could find out who had the beer and games going on) don't know anything about thati

    I see you still haven’t learned to comprehend!! I’ve not tried to “justify” anything, actually quite the contrary.
    Congress has denied the use of 33’s due to “safety” concerns, the cameras and collision mitigation systems are the company’s ways of combatting such safety concerns in an attempt to convince Congress that we are safe enough to pull them.
    My point is if you or anyone else was told anything different concerning the use of the CMS or cameras it was a flat out lie, they’re only here in order to get the 33’s.

    blah blah blah if we want some lies we know who to talk to or in this case the puppet spewing company talking points. All the stuff you mentioned if it doesn't make us safer in the eye's of congress and they turn the 33 footers down i guess all the gadgets will be taken out of the trucks right? :scratchhead::clappy:
