    ... because it minimizes miles, which I am not paid for, at the expense of time, which I am.

    I know it's all been said before, but it's rolling out in my center and this is my first day on a route with ODO. And in truth, if I drove back and forth through stop lights on a timestudy ride, I'd be accused of stealing time.

    This is my first day, but it's looking about a half hour slow.

    My first day today, too. Love it. Roughly 40 mins of OT for free today b/c I was made to take different routes to and from my area than normal because it was 5 fewer miles lol.

    Based on 10 MPG avg in my package car at around $2.90/gal for diesel, they saved roughly $1.45 in fuel and it only cost them $32.35 in salary!

    Winning strategy if I ever saw one.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Highly unlikely that package car is getting 10 mpg. More like 7/8.

    They could of saved just as much if not more money if they had invested in new package cars with higher MPG.

    Made drivers happy and likely even cut down on ot.
     
  14. In my center they have give up the trace as long you stay within the orion miles nothing is said about the trace .Orion runs the miles up.lol

    I hope this becomes the case here. It got worse after my original post, a n'hood that should have taken 40 mins took 65. Gah! Just let me work!
