    Really another step upward for ELDs, not saying an ELD could have prevented this, because who is to say what this driver did before he came to work the night before. But the people that are pushing for ELDs have a little more ammunition now.

    You have no idea of my background.

    Before you attack....you should ask some questions. ... I'm not going to rehash my resume again. ..but I do have a teamsters pension coming to me.

    I just hope you stay working at abf... I myself was a victim of terminal closers and company shutdowns. Not looking for your pity. ..but this is all there is in my area left to support my family.

    Like I said you would defend them to the death fedex ground is the bottom of the heap you gotta do what you gotta do the junk they let pull there sets is amazing and I'm sure the owner of the trucks is responsible for all the lawsuits FedEx bares no responsibility that's why they use them I hope you get the insurance at a good price and it pays for your med bills the freight side guys do pretty good but they do laugh at you ground side guys and as far as the teamsters I never said anything about you I was talking about me it's been damn good to me the wrecks speak for
    For themselves I see ground trucks everyday in construction zones not even slow down 75 80 mpr all the time I never even said nothing about ups being union I was comparing you to them and I wont even talk about fedex home delivery what they make I talked to one making a dollar a stop wow and I saw a add for a team 40cents a mile split unreal but they find people to do it the big box carriers pay more i would try the freight side ? Like I said good luck
