Pretty much any time a new way to punish/fire me is introduced I don't like it.
According to this , you will be back to 62mph if you turn your wipers on.
Heard a driver say he will just flick the wipers on for a few seconds ( less than the 10 required to drop you to 62mph - then flick them back on )Rainex is the answer.
They've mentioned coaching, right? Guess what's next.
Come on. People have been saying that since we got those cameras, and it took them 5 years to attach discipline to cell phone use, and you still get to do it twice a year. And that is it. Not exactly the Spanish Inquisition.
And that is exactly what you should do if you’re tired. Thanks for making a good decision! I’m not sleeping as good these days. There will come a time when I will do the same.When I first went on linehaul in '07, I used to run all night nonstop. Then an old timer with lots of years experience told me that one day it will catch up to me, ya know what, he was right. Now, I use my 15 minute break for a power nap on my return because, it's right when the body naturally wants to go to sleep. So instead of trying to be a freight hero and drive with a bad case of the "bob and weave" I do the smart thing and just pull over and rest a few minutes. It's a lot better than parking it in the woods wondering what the hell just happened.
Sorry guess I didn’t get the full meaning out. I have no problem with taking a 15 min nap both ways or a 30 min on lunch. I have a big problem with guys that take the full time allotted were you can do it quicker. With the higher speed that means more sleep time for the slobs.I don't think we are talking about the majority of guys. Everyone stops. Not everyone takes advantage.
It's an automatic trigger.. no bump or brake needed is what I've been told.They didn't say anything about punishment or firing.
I'll take the speed increase. I don't do 10 over anyway, but the 15mph turn thing seems strict. Of course, they'll have to get the video first, and it's pretty easy to avoid that in a Cascadia.
From what I heard the one on the Cross Bronx was cut off. Don’t know why the one on 84 happened
That was the response I received from driver trainer after he asked the appropriate persons. Just passing on what I was told.There's no way it does that with the system they use. I think that was a misunderstanding based on the the use of the word "trigger" in that email that's been going around.
The camera keeps track of roadspeed. It's all on the video screen when you watch it.
There are far too many drivers in our company and all the ltl’s that drive sets like ****ing Indy cars. See guys doing 30 rounding the corner into the yard. Why? Slow the **** down.
Does it matter? Anybody with knowledge of the Cross Bronx would know that 70 mph is way in excess of a safe speed for that roadway regardless of the truck's capability.
