Sorry, I apologize, didn't realize you drove for Saia and couldn't use one.
Actually, I drove a truck a few weeks back that the regular driver leaves a Cb in it. I turned it on channel 19, and went probably 20 miles, and never heard any talking. Guess if it doesn't have a key pad, it's not worth using???
Hey Dave didn't you hear they now make rubber gears for the transmission's now no nasty grinding noise just the smell of burnt rubber
Nah. Luckily Donna and Deena can rebuild a transmission in a couple of hours.
You might want to see what the 30 minutes break after on duty / driving violation is compared to according to the dot
From what I read it's worse then getting a DUI and as a matter of fact I posted the article on this website a few months ago.
So put that in your pipe and smoke it...
I don't smoke...
Our hotel has a autonomous clutch....
Are you serious? I haven't touched or heard a cb since I retired 27 yrs ago, now you tell me they are a thing of the past.
Are you just pullin my leg? tell me it ain't so!
Wasn't quite sure what it was at first,until I turned it on and heard all the static on 19. Then it all came back to me....turn the squelch back....
Thanks for the info, you just helped me make a big decision, I ain't coming out of retirement with no CB!
BTW, I looked up that word "autonomous" in my Funk and Wagnall, they referred me to BRG Patel Consultants LLC

Be nice to Wong. No name calling.
Besides, I think Deena is kinda sweet on him...
Don't think Deena's sweet on Wong, he borrowed $20 from her, just being nice until she gets it back.
HERE then is a Glaringly CLEAR EXAMPLE of OVER REGULATION in TRUCKING.
I was ONCE ticketed by a Arizona Scale House "Officer" (just into AZ. from N.M. on I-10) for having the G.P.S. below (just above the bottom next to the split window rubber/gasket in a Freight Shaker) the restricted allowance from the top. I told that "officer" the rule was pointless and dangerous and that with the charging cord attached and the unit mounted within the "restriction", there would be a distraction from the cord. That was in '14 or '15. No problem to or since that one time. It'll be observed Nationwide so be prepared.
Just another way to HARRASS TRUCKERS while 4 wheelers and motor homes get a pass!!
"Borrowed" $20.00 to get a Lizard to help pass the time of the pointlessly required "30 minute break".

Oh, don't forget about the "correct placement" of your G.P.S. unit or suffer your "Safety Award" from the Complete Stupidity Alliance.

Don't Drink, Don't Think, Don't Rest yet DO YOUR BEST!!
lol there is alot more but 7 points for a 30 min violation I thought was worth posting
How many "drivers" nowadays would even understand much if any of what them thar Lyrics represented?
I keep forgetting, not many of us dinosaurs left.
Like crackerbox, jimmy, smoker or hood?
