    I'm a trained legal writer (MA Legal Studies), a part-time sailor/soldier in my 20th year, and an occasional trucker. I have undergraduate education in geography, history and psychology.
    I'm active in influencing laws that effect drivers of both cars and trucks, including developing arguments that generally oppose the trend to use machines and devices to enforce traffic laws and driver compliance. Occasionally I voice my opinions on other matters important to consumers.
    I'm here mostly because I like to get feedback on drivers' issues with these devices. I also like to promote more valid and effective views as to why we should oppose them. I feel that industry views on electronic compliance are myopic, and do not promote the kinds of relationships that are expected in the American way of life.

    Good for you, I concur with the issues of device generated citations. What currently really makes my blood boil, is red light runners, and knuckleheads that stay 40 ft or so behind the vehicle in front of them while waiting at a stop light.

    Shouldn't a trained legal writer know the difference 'affect' and 'effect'?

    Not really. We need something here on TTR in TRUCKING INDUSTRY REGULATIONS to discuss, argue and fighting on interpretation.
    alds and HoneyBadger67 Thank this.

    Yes, but if OP is using speech-to-text then this would be a simple oversight.

    Without knowing specifically what devices you are referring to I can only give you a very general opinion. But my primary reason to oppose them is lack of flexibility. The operational nature of the trucking business does not lend itself to predetermined categories and time slots.
