    I wonder if anyone else has any. A veteran driver told me this about 15 yrs ago. " If you're constantly picking your pen off the floor, you aren't using your legs when you pick up packages." That has stuck with me all these years, and I don't have to memorize anything.

    Don't pick your nose while driving over speed bumps should be in the 10 point commentary!!

    Just to rephrase " If you are picking your nose while driving you are not using the "10 & 2" rule"

    Let's not also forget, don't sip on your coffee or drink you Big Gulp, while going over those speed bumps.

    This one has stuck with me for years. It was the best safety advice I ever got.

    Just out of curiosity, how many times have you guys gotten lucky and seen a whole lot more than just a thigh or boob shot?

    The speed bumps on my route are called frost heaves. Nothing more exciting than a P700 getting air.

    All together now, one, two, three
    Keep your mind on your driving
    Keep your hands on the wheel
    Keep your snoopy eyes on the road ahead

    I have a couple of times gotten quite the show!! But only after I came to Feeders. Apparently, you girls like to show off to the big truckers! (Not a Feeder shot).
