    Well, every company has their share of people that use poor judgment. I guess that rep. falls in the 1% category that have issues in company vehicles. Placing DriveCam in sales vehicles must not be cost effective. Don't know. Don't care. I'm a truck driver and it's not my job to make those decisions.

    Our TM has been observed more than once driving his company car with a cellphone to his ear. Bunch of drivers called into HR about it.

    Maybe sales should wear body cams so they can be coached on how to do their jobs as well. LOL

    Hell. Why not put body cameras on city and linehaul drivers and see what they do outside the truck while at POD and terminals....especially dark terminals.

    Not to mention that it's against the federal law to record anything you do audibly in the cab of your truck without your knowledge.Wiretapping

    Any driver that hasn't seen a member of management or sales on the phone while driving must be:

    1. Blind. Or
    2. Have head buried in sand or too close to the ass while kissing it to see.

    I honestly only care for drivers in general. Saw too much BS while I was employed with Saia to turn a blind eye. I have this uncanny ability to detect BS when I see it. And I'm not afraid to question those that make a living spewing BS. Examples are: drivers are expendable, linehaul is paid too much, blah blah blah.

    Crap like that comes from those who are oblivious to the reality that Saia is a TRUCKING company. That's the o my way they generate revenue. Instead of belittling and denigrating drivers, maybe they should be treated with respect. Seems to me that is the department that Saia is lacking...respect for drivers.

    Train...this pied piper Crusade of blindness is getting a little old. Open your eyes. Please

    You can't have both ways, if it's against policy then apply the rules evenly. Just because they generate revenue doesn't make them exempt. Unsafe is unsafe no matter is you are in a truck, car, or airplane.
