A while back I overheard the RDA and a Mgr talking about who was and wasn't doing pretrips based on yard video.I thought that wasn't accessible from home .
That's okay I threw a few of mine straight in
the trash . If and when they want to get rid of
you , well if there's a will there's a way...
Yeah that’s right. As far as I know I am the only person responsible for covering my backside. In a fatality accident every piece of equipment you touched in the previous 30 days is tracked down and inspected by an investigator. And you don’t have to believe me but if you are on camera NOT doing a proper pre and post trip inspection you have trouble.Don’t need video for that. Just look at who’s out the gate in 8 minutes.
I’m told that those that are really good at it can tell the pressure of the tire within 2psi by the sound.I’m sure they gave those scofflaws a good stern talking to!
I can just picture these reformed humans crawling around with headlamps ablaze - thumping tires with sledges like they’re mining for gold…
