    we knew that long before it was implemented and went live.

    I don't worry about CSA scores with anything I do, it isn't worth the grief.

    companies from what I have seen worry more about accidents and big tickets and csa is pretty much against the driver, a violation only lasts 2 years for the company but 3 years for the driver and to drive smaller companies and o/o out of business.... I got into a quick conversation with a DOT officer few years ago about a bloody marker light about what color was it orange or amber just because he wanted to give me a violation

    I don't see any hard evidence just an article by overdrive I'm sure they're trying to get more money out of drivers pocket than trying to do the right thing I have no feelings for them and I don't trust them sure they spend a lot of money around but does it really help the drivers no it don't

    The air horn works off of the secondary tank. The brakes work off the primary. It the secondary drain the brakes should still work. If it drained both tanks then the check valve between them is bad. Therefore the braking system is operating as it should.
