    Yeah mine is supposed to do that, or trigger at 20mph. But I’ve driven all the way to the highway on-ramp at 19mph, still in yard move.

    Or you can ride on duty, on the tablet, turned off. Gotta do what you gotta do sometimes. The darn thing still notates “power loss in X city and state, and power regained in Y city and state” so it’s not fool proof unfortunately.

    Estes might not, but the slip and fall lawyer opposite the courtroom from you most definitely will should anything happen.

    That's why it's best to just run what you can run. If I can't make it, screw it.

    Yeah, your running your own clock correctly for your benefit. You don't need a HOS violation.

    Yeah but unfortunately you can get hung out on the side of the road for 10 hours with no way to rest with these fools.

    Nah, if i aint gonna make it I won't even try to accept the load. Ask central or the dispatch office what the lane hours are, they are usually padded and that's what I go by. GPS and google maps doesn't usually give that extra padding.

    Kao did they take your truck from you when you went to the jackson turn?
