    Crete is very strict no cell phones at all even with blue tooth
    There's a couple of things that will frustrate me here
    Was also told I may not get a truck in Lincoln either
    And was told I would and I drove from fort Wayne Indiana

    They will issue you 'safety' points over drivecam incidents, even ones that did not occur during a accident.
    Better not have a cell phone in your hand when it goes off, and your seat belt on.
    If you have bad driving habits, you better hope you don't get stuck in a truck with a drivecam.

    I saw 1 drivecam at Lincoln in an unassigned truck. The size of it and where it's mounted would block a lot of low sitting sun.

    they can put one in my truck if they want, I rarely drive 62 as there's always a bit slower truck way ahead of me that I don't feel like passing.

    I like driving slow and by myself, if I'm in my personal vehicles on any interstate, even a Prime truck would pass me quickly.

    WTF? The Crete policy is NO CELLPHONE USE WHILE DRIVING, PERIOD. Bluetooth, wired headset, anything.

    They don't have to call you, I've been here nearly 6 years and have never received a phone call from Crete while driving.
     
    SnoopyKs Thanks this.

    The company I was previously had a bad habit of calling me when I was driving, when I finally told safety what they were doing, it stopped.
