absolutely never do this. should be a dot violation
its an automatic
How long have you worked for a company?
they said come in tuesday 845
july im a new 22.4
Sounds like a mechanical failure if you were in an automatic. Might need to stick to that story vs saying you don’t know how a hand brake works.
Seriously though, I think half of our cover drivers loosen the hand brakes to the point they don’t work and I’m the only one who actually tightens them up (and uses them) to prevent a roll away.
Had a driver years ago get pissed when I tightened his ebrake after I covered his route. Guess who had a rollaway a few weeks later...
i really cant imagine not putting in park, i mean i dont want to roll myself over and i couldnt get out of the truck and get the package and walk to the house and turn around if it wasnt in park. it must have slipped. but the brake was loose back at the hub. no one ever told me about testing the brake. once in some class at integrad isnt enough. this is the most important safety practice. should be drilled everyday. why is the brake even adjustable at all????
That's all good brother two accidents in less than a year
happy to do so if i was told this. never $#@$%#@ told this!!!!
first one didnt count, company decided i wasnt at fault. this is a mechanical issue. both instances i was not in the truck.
u. its managements job to constantly remind the bunch of new drivers they have of everything we need to remember and do. how is something this serious never brought up at pcm??? EVER??????
But you don't have a long work history and the pattern does show. Whatever I come is good luck be humble and tell the truth.
Get prepared to get drilled on Tuesday when you go back to work
Im going to as professionally as possible drill them on why they never talk about handbrake checks and making sure we are doing them. never once. unacceptable.
it’s ok sweety do you need a hug
That's not the attitude that you need to go into that meeting. Trust me eat some humble pie and tell the truth
that is the truth!!! they never talk about it!!!!! I already told the truth. I ran to the truck reaching for the brake but it was already up! aside from my job, this is my life and someone else's life and then property. unbelievable. I don't have much to lose.
Yeah that’s gonna work well for you
let us know how it goes
That should go over pretty well.
