    Enough of us complained about not knowing what we were signing that they finally make up a printout of whatever it is they want to tell us so we can read of any changes to policy.

    And when was last time you or a driver speak's up and say's what I'm I signing and why or where is the Video we are suppose to see.There are reasons why Videos are picked every month for driver's to watch.Increase in Accident's or Incident's that they see every month

    Because I know my comments are being watched ....I know this to be true.....I simply hope it will change the trend back to monthly videos being watched. I receive the monthly recap with all the information on it too. I no longer pay attention to things at the terminal like i used to. I clock in and do the work assigned as best i can.

    Apparently to WIC for our 660mi turns. But again, this is per an office jockey, so I remain skeptical.

    Spend a morning each month always watching videos and then listen to the same loudmouth driver asking questions for too long.

    I mumbled shut up loud enough last time and everyone laughed bc they were tired of his questions.

    When on the clock anything that takes more time gets no complaints from me.

    Yeah there's a :shit: ton of them, I just got to IND tonight, 2018's, but they still have the "old" Cascadia nose... I thought the '18s were supposed to have the coolio funky new nose.

    You may find the ones with the old nose have Cummins engines. New Cascadia is Detroit exclusively right now.

    If that's the case I hope Cummins fixed their aftertreatment issues, it seems like I've had more trouble with the Cummins in this regard than the Detroits.

    I heard the same thing from our shop supervisor. Getting 50 KW's. They'll be on the east coast and possibly Midwest. None coming to the Pacific Northwest.

    Truck is a truck, don't see why you guys get all excited out of bare bones single axle sloped nose KW. S came out here from GBO this winter to help out with his KW and every time it pulled into the yard guys of SEA were taking photos of it like it was a Lambo. Easy to tell ya'll are cdl mill drivers because that ain't a real truck.
