They all count.
...or you could just sit there and keep your mouth shut and hope like hell they don't fire you...
You are right-----this is a man's game and part of being a man is OWNING UP WHEN YOU UP!!
The wind shifted direction.
He was screwing with you.
There's only one in our whole fleet that I've loosened, and I stopped doing that when I realized it wasn't making the brake any easier to pull.
But I doubt they'll be able to produce anything showing he was taught how to adjust the brake. That isn't covered at Integrad. I didn't learn that until I found one so loose it wouldn't stay engaged, then the mechanic showed me.
Wow....just wow! It’s is apart of our training, it’s part of your pre-trip. It’s shocking how quickly you dismiss yourself from responsibility, take some personal accountability with your job.
A car with an automatic transmission will rollaway when you shut it off if you did not shift it into Park. This is what sounds like happened to me. A loose parking brake will not hold the vehicle in place. I don't know if they can use telematics or some other system that will tell if the vehicle was in Park at the moment it started rolling. Those transmissions do have a computer built into them so I expect they do. I learned this the hard way the first day I got my first automatic package car. I was lucky enough to notice it was starting to roll and I was quick enough to stop it before it rolled backwards into a couple of expensive cars.
To fire you.
Won't have to worry about it.
You are going to be unemployed.
Did you own up about throwing your cat in the dumpster?
What about when you were jaywalking and got hit by a car?
You’ve almost certainly been instructed on the use of an e-brake. Whether or not you were paying attention is another story.
But how many other people do not know how to do that?
Probably most of the newer/younger drivers. It's not covered in any of the training material, so it's something you would learn through experience and time.
You cause you were intimidated and didn’t continue tightening it? Haha
How you holding up brother wrench?
Too much to cope with here
I've had one start to roll after not fully engaging park.
Got back into the hand brake habit real quick that day.
