    Hope he recovers with no permanent issues.
    I see orange reflective vests in our future.

    Or if someone is in a rush to make gate. There are numerous possibilities. All that is important is that everyone remember, something like this can't be taken back.

    Prayers for this driver for a speedy recovery.

    That's how it started at UPS freight. Hostler hit and killed a driver in St. Louis and the vests appeared shortly after. It still doesn't solve the rush atmosphere that the company creates with the silly numbers game.

    I understand where your coming from but personally I appreciate the effort they give to ensure these gate times are met. Without these parameters many here would be working much longer days

    I have seen on more than one occasion a "safety" guy spying on drivers in the yard doing their drops and hooks while wearing all black clothes.

    Hmmmm.....a clandestine operation? Very stealthy if ya ask me. They should dress those CK'ers in black ninja garb for maximum effect. A-holes.
    Maybe they should hide in the bathroom stalls too to ensure we're washing our hands(plenty of guilty participants there)

    Wow, I'd love to find someone sneaking around the yard dressed in black.
    "Hello, 911? Yes, I think there is someone trying to break into our trailers.
    Yes, all dressed in black, sneaking around the yard."

    I DISAGREE TOTALLY!! The numbers game that is played is Blah Blah Blah AT BEST! They ( beat, grip , push, yell ) every single B.S down our throats and turn around and fudge those same numbers everyday! Wonder why morale and certain centers have union issues. Pounds per hour and bills per hour is piss pour at best. Heck most operations don't have the proper individuals running IB or OB worth a crap. As long as trailer load average, trailer bill average and especially cut times are met the loaders met there goals on that shift for the day..
