    Does anyone know of Harsh braking events being activated? (where they show the counts like seat belt bulk door open) Also if so what is considered a harsh breaking. Our area in Michigan isn't yet. We are in the process of installing new devices in package cars that are cellular instead of the old radio communication ones that had to wait until the car returned to the building and was shut off before the days info is uploaded.

    I think they are recorded as in if you have an accident they will know but not a daily print out that I know of.
     
  3. I smash the breaks all the time and never hear anything. (typically animals, rural route)

    This company is so dumb. Who cares how many times or how hard you slam the brakes. As long as you stop and don't hit things it shouldn't matter

    ok, I know there is an option on what the supervisors look at but it wasn't highlighted yet to see harsh braking yet. Maybe something in the future. I know some other mechanics have seen it on there end but haven't mine. We see the electronic part in Autotel.

    I can tell you they don't have a "Left E brake on all day" switch.

    It's really hard to remember on the automatics.

    Nice thing about hydraulic hybrids, the parking brake and ebrake are all in one.

    And when the driver ahead of you loosened up the parking brake because "it makes my arm sore".

    When you smell that burnt brake smoke it's a reminder that you forgot to release it.

    They should praise us for avoiding the accident instead of breathing down our neck by asking why this or why that.

    I'm curious to know what UPSs' definition of 'harsh braking' actually is?

    I can't wait to find out.

    You will.

    Picture yourself in the jump seat during an ojs ride.

    There you go.

    We won't have to worry about it (unless you're avoiding an accident) if you drive only as fast as you can read the house numbers, street names and never above the speed limit.

    Drop your speed and you'll avoid most hard braking issues.

    For $50 an hour on overtime, they can breathe down my neck as long as they want to.

    Some of this I've have witnessed, some is here say, what I do know is telematics displays:

    Bulkhead door open or closed and time of each event.

    Time between engine shutoff and door opening,

    length of time door is open.

    G-force meter active all the time. Displays braking and accelerative forces.

    It knows what lane you're in, what side of street you parked.

    Synced with diad so if you hit stop complete with engine running it flags the stop.

    Making a delivery without opening bulkhead door but that's a gray area because the rear door may be used.

    What is here say but from a credible source is it's sensitive enough to record movement in package car like shutting bulkhead, rear door, or stepping on/off vehicle,....sharp movements like those.

    As long as the breathing does not require cameras watching us drive.

    It shows a pattern of (unsafe) aggressive driving.
