    Just curious if a.) they can follow you in a UPS truck without notifying you before hand, and b.) can they follow you in their own car so you can't identify them?

    We've had a few accidents lately in our center so apparently they're gonna be watching us out there.

    Yes they do it all the time ! Just learn what they drive and take note of that certain vehicle but if you follow the 10 point you have nothing to worry about!

    Just assume you are always being watched. With telematics you are.

    Yes. They do it all the time. They will even rent cars to do observations.

    When you see them in your area just shoot them a text message and ask if they need directions to somewhere !

    Yes They do it all the time. Once you find out what they driver you usually can pick them out pretty easy. Then just keep doing your job like your suppose and if they drive up to you to talk about what they saw remember Play stupid when they ask if you saw them and say no or ya at the last stop don't tell them you been watching them for the last 30 min.

    It amazes me, how when accidents increase, so do observations. Yet our safety awards sit in an office, get 2 inches of dust and doodles, and coffee stains from all the hard work done in an office. And never any recognition. Just b**** and moan over a few fender benders, and imo, its the cost of doing business.

    Call the cops and report suspicious activity, we had a PCM explaining this. Management could alleviate the aforementioned if they didn't act like they were taping an episode of Cheaters.

    Be sure to ask the center manager during a PCM "what does Policy say we should do if we observe a suspicous vehicle following us on our route?"
    Be interesting to see what he or she says!

    If they only smoked and and skateboarded well...they'd get me every time.

    If you are dumb enough to leave the key in the ignition while doing businesses or apartment deliveries, especially in these days of FOBS, I hope management has the balls to jump in your truck for an awesome surprise.

    I've always thought it would be funny, if possible, to have two friends who could be called to come along and block them in where they were parked.

    I think this is a wise thing to do. Hopefully, they have expired tags or insurance card to add to the overall experience.
