some one doesn't like fexup ......sorry mean fedex it looks like
Was that all in one day? :confused:
Those were all his accidents. Fedex gives plenty of breaks if you kiss enough butt.
Is this really fair? FedEx is one of the biggest carriers on the road. If course we'll see more FedEx's in accidents, because there is more of them out there.
Have you ever seen a Fedex truck follow the posted speed limit or other traffic laws? I never once have.
Yes I have. I pass them all the time in my 62mph truck.
Not in my neck of the woods. They pass me like I'm standing still.
That's fine. It's easy to judge a company based on personally experience, but is it fair way to judge the company.
Yes. That's the whole point of CSA.
And no one is bringing up CSA scores here. Just showing pics and using anecdotal evidence.
Lets not forget there are 4 divisions of FedEx.
Is it fair to compare the FedEx Freight drivers to the FedEx Ground drivers?
You asked if it was ok to judge a company based on what the drivers do. I responded. CSA makes the carrier just as liable as the driver.
Ya two different subjects.
Fedex freight trucks run the speed limit or 5 to 10 MPH under the speed limit in states except cali?
They're all set to run 65MPH, except for a few trucks that will only do 64 MPH?
The speed limit isn't 65/70 everywhere. Through downtown Indianapolis the speed limit is 50mph going through the I-70/I-65 split. Every Fedex truck I've seen that drives through there has the truck pegged out at governed speed. How do I know? Because I drive through at 53 tops and they pass me like I'm standing still.
I-70/I-65 split, otherwise known as the spaghetti bowl. If they're running flat out through there and keep it on all wheels, which is highly unlikely flat out? It sounds like the police aren't doing there job. If we get two speeding tickets, were gone. I agree with you on the unsafe driving through area's like that is stupid on there part, but if the police would do there job in any area like that, a lot of that would stop!

Wreckage of the Fed Ex Newark accident, July 31, 1997
The crash of an ATR-42 cargo airplane while on approach to landing at Lubbock, Texas,
was caused by the flight crew’s failure to maintain a safe airspeed, which put the plane into an
aerodynamic stall at an altitude too low from which to recover, the NTSB determined.

WHO, besides Airbrakes, has it in for FedEx??
--Oh, and like Airbrakes stated so typically in another Accident Forum thread: ALL ACCIDENTS (including WEATHER related) ARE PREVENTABLE through the little known usage of PROPER TRIP PLANNING--
Gosh, WHO knows why we were not yielded such useful information when WE ALL BEGAN TRUCK DRIVING?!
