    I am not saying they are great new employees but if anyone has noticed there is a steady line of new guys and gals going through orientation. Take a look at the sign in sheet when you get to a busy terminal and it is just amazing how many drivers will have employee numbers starting with a four.

    Yes there is that, and our night ops guy will "counsel" them that they do NOT have to join the union. Most of them want no part of the union.
    they'll self bargain for what they want. Of course I'm looking at it from the city side, not the road side.

    It is beyond me how a driver could not figure out it won't fit. Even if they can't read, do the have no sense of height? But he can be excused from this wreck for the simple fact of who hired him. Swift, says it all. von. Forgot, remember what Forest said, stupid is as stupid does.

    VON, lets not be too hasty to condemn, maybe he did think the 15mph rule applied to bridges also.

    Oh Lord please forgive me. And make sure the gates are open for Seabreeze, for he has taken my confession & absolved me of my transgression. I don't know about the rest of ya, but that second sentence was a little over the top for even me. Thanks Seabreeze. von.

    Memory you say. My wife keeps reminding me I can't remember anything. And I tell her my memory is a lot like my Tallywacker, short most of the time, and occasionally long. von.

    Von, if you are not familiar with the 15mph rule, if I'm not mistaken,Abfer put that rule in effect
    he commented if you maintained 15mph, the air shield on tractor would flip any low hanging wires over your trailer.
    Hope that was HIS comment.

    I was not familiar with the rule. But if ABF started it, so be it. Somebody had to. How can a driver who has passes all the CDL written & skills test, & I am sure watched a bunch of videos during his hiring process, not have enough common sense to not drive under the bridge. It not only boggles the mind, but really scares the crap out of me when passing a semi on the road or one behind me, that their might be a driver behind the wheel with no common sense that might kill me or my family. I know, out with the old & in with the new. But skills from when we started back in the 60 70 & 80's are very much lacking in the newbies that enter this industry. And the Feds encourage it. Welcome to the Concrete Highway of America. von.

    Can anyone tell me if there are any rules that are still in effect for dispatch? I know first in first out is no longer used and first in longest run out is out the window. Do these dispatchers follow any of the rules anymore? I am so sick of their lies....I mean excuses.....no I guess I did mean lies!
