    As my kid says on her posts about her friends when they get stupid......
    OMG......I'm sure Train can't be management and give out that information. His "stringpullers" would have a stroke.

    Give train some time and he comes back with an answer. Thank You. There is one metric, whereby everyone can judge for themselves, if the camera situation is causing drivers to leave. The camera debate has been going on for awhile. Three months ago the company made it a point, to take time at the last quarterly meetings and before that sent postcards home to the missus, to reassure everyone that the cameras are there for the drivers protection. The next round of quarterly meetings should be held in the next few weeks. If there is a problem, the company will address the issue again, meaning that the situation just will not die. Let's see.

    Yes, Dave that was a good one. I even laughed when I read it. I refrained from giving it a like but since you did I suppose I will. It was funny.

    Maybe some of his friends are a bit less "loco"motivated.

    Short on drivers, and the state of Illinois underwater for a couple of days... magnified the problem.

    I won't sugar coat this. Tulsa is having some serious issues. Can't say it's a direct result of DriveCam but I can't say it isn't either. Rider did he tell you it was because of DriveCam?

    Many of the senior guys won't ride with trainers that have less driving experience than them. It's a pride thing. Many will just walk away. I hate to see that. Let's move to private only "Rider" .... Please.
