    It's not dozing off when you've got both eyes open, both hands on the wheel, and are centered in your lane of travel.

    Get some social skills so you don't think the worst of someone when you don't even know them.

    Most of these Line guys walk in with the imprint of the steering wheel on their forehead after a nights work.

    When you worked as many years as I have kid, you deserve to take a cat nap. But let's face the truth, won't find many drivers my age out here anymore moving this freight that these line sloths bring in at night.

    A company I worked for briefly had these systems and it is a common issue.

    The solution was to have the shop recalibrate them, the new problem was finding a tech who knew what he was doing. Sometimes the trucks came back worse than before

    Okay, I'll sandbag it just for you. Since I have a Seattle trailer. You're a freaking nut. Oh by the way there's technology called speak to text.

    It's very sad that nowadays companies would rather spend money on whizzbang "technology" that makes us safer than to spend the money on requiring more rigorous training and more of an emphasis on professionalism in their driver pool. If we were regulated and trained like airline pilots a lot of this stupid technology would be unnecessary.

    Billyboy, lets do face the truth, I move more freight than you, ( Miller Lite) between the refrigerator and my dock.
    Probably take more naps too.

    When you roll another set of triples and lawyers go through your phone records good luck on telling them that was just a speak to text.

    This is a new OD, what may of got you your job back after the last triples rollover may not work this time. Best keep away from them electronics when on the drive line.

    Song, hate to disagree, but training is the last thing a truck driver needs, we are born knowing everything!!
