    YAAY this summer i get to see every coop....
    *possible rant inbound*
    i like going through my dads messages, and i came across one that said "CSA scores". tapped it, read, now i want to know. what are some of these guys smoking? whats more important? money or staying alive? why would you put your job on the line to make money? great, because some guys decided that "eh, its just a job" the CSA scores DROPPED. low CSA scores + the best fleet to drive for award = NO prepass...
    thanks to these guys, for part of my summer, i get to stare down the station master. :biggrin_25522:

    Pre pass is a way they can track you every mile moved, speed limit and I would not want it myself. Coops are not that bad if you run legal.

    I didn't know that. Pre-Pass time stamps you at the coops? All coops or what? You learn something new everyday.

    If I am correct the prepass is tied to your company or your USDOT number and your base plate to be able to identify your vehicle maybe even the vehicle VIN number. Each time it beeps either red or green that is recorded time and location.They were supposed to be tied together all over the USA but that has not happened yet. The 11 western states are tied together as far as I know and have been for several years.it is possible to cross a port of entry in Montana and get checked in colorado and get a ticket for a false log if your log reads different that the prepass readout. This was kind of like an early on board recorder.The same goes for tollsthe prepass is recorded if a audit acurrs the Federal man will have a print out of all prepass and fuel card transactions to compare your logs to. Correct me if I am wrong mndriver.

    that's the way I understand it too.

    I am on the edge if I want to have them, or go the old fashioned way. It's a PITA to have to shut down and pull in, ....

    But do I want the big brother record tracking my every move.

    Do I run legal. YOP.

    It's the principle of it for me.

    At one time some werner drivers were selling thier prepass transponders to other drivers so they could avoid the tolls several were caught on the Pa turnpike. I had heard that Pa impounded the trucks and trailers but not sure if that is true.I shoud say they were former werner drivers.
