    Damn board is rolling all over the cab scanning everywhere.

    Other than that I love the cushioned seats and radio.

    Are you asking a question or just blowing off a little steam with this thread?

    Im in one too, but the cupholders in the rentals I've had so far are deep enough that the board sits in it just perfect

    I'll call your radio and cushioned seats and raise you a bulkhead door.

    Don't worry about it, management doesn't care about safety reports during peak. Just ask my golf cart helper about working in the dark with a golf cart, with no headlights.

    C'mon really! Do you think there is Telematics in a rental truck? This is gazillion dollar technology designed for UPS. They are not going to spend all that time and money to install the devices in rental trucks just to spy on us.

    So, let the truck idle all day long when it's cold, drive as far as you want in reverse, record while in motion and while idling, don't wear a seatbelt and blast the radio until your eardrums burst!

    That right there is BS but typical. What's the guy doing holding his flashlight out to see?

    Nope, just street lights and a cell phone light.

    Sounds like every day of my 30 year career (except the seat belt thing)--I always wore a seatbelt (IF the truck had one)

    They told the guy he should have been done with the trailer before dark. Did I mention that the entire trailer was brickloaded and they shuttled his leftover :censored2: out to me because my truck was also blown out?

    Stories like this make me want to punch someone out every PCM where the word safety is even mentioned.

    I have talked to guys that were here back in the day of wooden shelves and paper delivery records and have heard all the stories about how it was. Funny thing, it seems that drivers were safer back then and there were less accidents.

    I rarely go to PCM anymore...having them lie straight to your face telling you they care about you and your safety is not how I wanna start my day

    Preloaded suppose to scan each pkg b4 placing them in the truck.......slows them down even more loading ........GENIOUS idea!
