Trucks getting neutered back to 65. Too many high speed accidents.
Yep. Heard this was on going to happen. It's too bad.
Too many lead foot Lennies.
What’s the P&D raise part of this? Not many runs where you’re going 70 for very long if at all.
Most likely they found out they have to fire much of their drivers under the new speeding policy. These guys don’t put much thought into things.
Rain X. Drivers running with cruise control on in the rain with no windshield wipers on for that extra 5mph.
Here we go again. Drag racing with 75% of the trucks on the road. Too fast for the slow lane, Too slow for the fast lane. Stuck in clusters unable to escape. forced to right lane with entering and exiting traffic. 5 mph below 70 mph speed limit roads. Until the tires wear, then we'll have a 62 mph truck. SMH. Press on
We have several that are 60 plus miles out.
I think some of our road guys repurposed an old DEF tote bin for RainX bulk storage.
We do too. And one of them has 70 speed limits. So he’s going to be out for an extra 10 minutes daily, probably a bit less. Then works outbound.
I knew it. It was only a matter of time.
We, the driver, are to blame for this no one else. They give us a little perk and look what we do with it. Fine every way to drive with the cruise on in the rain and crash trucks. This company is getting more and more, release the brakes, turn the switch to "D" and smash the gas steering wheel holders. XPO it one of many company to blame for this. Are school are a f##king joke. The days of the Professional Truck Driver are dying.
Long dead. Steering wheel holders.
May be one of your best post
I guess my brothers at the terminals that voted for third party representation will still be driving at 70 it has to negotiated.. hahaha another bargaining chip
There’s more to the story of why they raised the trucks to 70mph then meets the eye . Timing was everything and it was more about messaging. It was more complicated then most could imagine . My opinion is they NEVER intended for it to be permanent. It got them through a tough period. I do think turning them down will save some drivers their jobs though and that’s a good thing.
With stagnant compensation, gps and camera surveillance what did they expect. It’s no longer a career option it’s job..
