    'VIDEO CAMERAS IN THEIR OWN PERSONAL VEHICLES.'


    I say BULL.
    There is no way i would allow the company i drive for to put a camera, in my personal vehicle.
    What i do on my own time is my business. They are going to tear oup my car or pickup, just to try to catch me doing something, they feel is unsafe.

    Now why bring in an outside safety group? Can't JB pay thier Safety Dept. good enough to do thier job?

    Still a bottom feeder hey? Back in the '80's, they got big by hauling cheap freight and had a CDL mill to beat all. It was common back then to see JB drivers hiring a driver to back in their trucks at truck stops and docks.

    Cameras in personal vehicles? doubtful, we have them in our company cars, and trucks, their called DRIVE CAM. They don't bother me as much as they use to, just watch what you do, and they won't have a reason to call you in..

    I would pack my stuff in, well I wouldnt pack I would throw my stuff into my car faster than a fat guy can get into a pair of sweat pants if my company wanted to put a camera in the truck that they allow me to drive. Mann what is this industry coming to? WOW CAMERAS REALLY I know this has to be CB talk!

    It's was like that at every OTR company I worked at.

    These Dedicated accounts work good for companies because they know the driver will do whatever is needed legal or not to keep on the account.
    They got hungry drivers waiting in the wings for anyone insolent enough to question any directive issued.

    That's why I prefer a dedicated lane over a dedicated account. You still get home without having to bend over and grab your cheeks.:yes2557:
