    I'm sure it had nothing to do with losing OVER 150 DRIVERS last month (according to a reliable source in the company), or the fact that they handicapped the rest of us with this logbook garbage and we cant deliver our customers freight on time anymore! It cant be because we are losing customers and contracts faster than we can underbid other companies and steal their freight!
    You are right, they will probably blame it on me!

    Not joking.

    That makes sense! Take away the ability to work a lille longer and then take the ability to work faster too! I know how Knight could save a bunch of money. Let's park the whole #### fleet and just become a broker and give someone else all the freight!

    Yeap. I lost 500 miles a week I can run and am completely run ragged. I can not believe how dangerous this truck is now, and dare I say it, I am wondering if Swift drivers really aren't that bad, it's being stuck at such a slow speed people take huge risks to get around you.

    i just finished a slip-seating in another truck that does 70mph. life was somewhat okay in that truck. the previous driver was a total pig, though, and i could NOT get the disgusting pig man, cheese stink out of that truck. plus the suspension is shot to hell. every single bump on the ultra smooth i-5 between the grapevine and san diego was pure heaven.

    i don't think profits are falling due to the super fantastic planning at knight. it's the fault of ALL THE DRIVERS!

    I'm on a restart, my DM wrote it down in the computer.

    I keep getting loads sent to the truck.

    Screw it, I'm going to restart my restart!
