    Hahahahahh hahaha. Had this come from a level headed person, it would be funny. But since you started the 10 year old little girl name calling event, Im going to overlook it. I can put you on the list with the other 10 year old girl on here, and would even appreciate you doing the same to me.

    Couldn't do that. It's worth the entertainment value alone. Now if you'll excuse me I have to go play with my dollies, poopie head.

    Any changes in coaching sessions in Chicago? Have they slowed down any? They have really slowed down in Dallas and Garland.

    Slowed down a little, but still a bunch getting coached for penny-ante stuff it seems. We still have a lot of trucks without cameras though. All the old junk seems to end up here eventually.

    Maybe that's by design since you guys hate them. I love the new Freightliners with the automatics especially in bumper to bumper traffic. And the A/C will run you out. I have mastered the cameras and I haven't had a video in months. Try and hold on PR. Things will get better. The sky isn't falling.

    We've always had tons of old trucks wind up here for some reason. Fine by me though.

    The Volvos are much better trucks than the Freightliners IMO, but you get what you pay for I guess. I drive a newer Volvo once in a while if the mood hits me, and haven't had any videos other then one for a car cutting me off and slamming on it's brakes. Only can stand to drive them once in a while because I use my Bluetooth all the time. Get rid of that rule and I could care less about the cameras.

    I was told by HST driver that the Safety man was riding with the City drivers trying to figure out why they are getting so many following to close videos. Saia management at its Finest, implement a plan 6 months after they put the cameras in the trucks. ( 6 seconds is tough on Friday nights at 11:30 pm, I can't imagine @ 7:30 am or 5:30 pm ) .

    Chicago is bad enough during rush hour. I can't even imagine doing it in Houston. Hopefully the safety guy learned something.

    Theres the problem. The safety guy needs to swap seats with the driver for a week and just let the driver show where to go. Then you'll see some changes.

    You think the Freightliners are so great, Runaway? Try driving them in the snow or the rain. Yeah, they may be great in the south but, up here in snow country, they suck. The company will find that out this winter when there will be many problems.

    If you want information on DriveCam try reading this thread instead of starting a new thread. Not everything is negative about this system although many want to believe that. It’s pissed me off a few times but it has also saved my ass a few times as well. Been in these trucks since day one and they don’t bother me a bit now.
