Interesting. As I said before I tried to use the 2 hr exemption to get back to at least a safe haven. Safety said no, goes against OD policy. I figured no problem, why fight it or get bent out of shape over it. Due to unforeseen weather or accidents, I’d tell them where I was going to shutdown. Never had a problem. Psst, don’t tell anyone but I’d always get paid my wait time, full rate. A baker’s dozen goes a long way for a certain dispatcher. Hahaha.
Oh, oh, Billy might know who I am talking about. There’s going to be a full investigation by the ODOT, DOJ, and whoever. Neither of us work there anymore so I guess we’re safe.
