    Heard this week we lost some driver's all over from Social Media post's.We lost line driver for posting picture of sitting in traffic and for falsifying log by taking his 30 while sitting in traffic.My opinion in all this is if you are stupid enough to do it then you deserve to be fired.:hide:
    Be careful out and think about your actions

    That driver must have been on their radar. That's another reason why Truckingboards is my only source of social media. I do not trust anyone.

    Honestly I thinks that's pure stupidity for them to be on anyone's friends list. Your asking for it, if OD found out they did nothing if they see something then they are on the chopping block.

    And that's why my Facebook Page is Privacy tight and nothing to do with OD or anyone that is employed with them.

    Same here, Ken. My FB page is locked down pretty tight. Maybe 20 friends total on it, and most are classmates I’ve known since the 60’s...WAY before my trucking days. I rarely post, and when I do I never post work-related stuff.

    They always put no handheld devices in the monthly meeting paperwork. Cameras are coming if guys keep doing stupid stuff like that.

    Have posted pictures of my full trailer.Or at a point of interest.Usually don't include the numbers if I can keep it out of the pic.But I'm also not on the OD driver page nor do I have very many Co workers as FB friends.

    IIRC GG is big into technology .I wouldn't doubt if someone in Corp monitors that stuff some kind of way.

    You’re absolutely right, Lone Ranger. When I was at Conway, I noticed a pretty sharp BMW near me at one of my stops. The dude had a white shirt and a tie on. My next stop was 4 miles away, and guess who I see show up about 30 seconds after me. Yep, white-shirt boy. Coincidence? Maybe. I stared him down pretty good...eye contact and all! Companies have people like this everywhere.

    Well thats how we ended up with driver facing cameras at Saia. Jackasses taking pics and videos going down the road looking up stuff on internet instead of doing what they were hired to do...DRIVE ! We had a few high dollar wrecks that were determined to be caused by distracted driving and now we have cameras staring at us. Hopefully yall can prevent the cameras , we had alot of good drivers come over to O.D. because of the cameras. Just use your damn common sense and cut the crap whoever you drive for.

    I take pictures of trailers in different yards, before I hook. I document them as proof. It’s amazing that some employees don’t realize what responsibilities they have to insure that a trailer is legal or doesn’t have holes in it. Also I don’t Facebook.
