    Should you be terminated by a company for not stopping at a stop sign 20 feet after going over the tracks. I've been driving for 5 years and I was always told never stop on the tracks. I stopped before tracks and looked. I was terminated because of it.... any knowledge of that ?

    Always stop 15 feet or so before the tracks/crossing gate -- until the too-close traffic light in question turns green, & traffic in front of you proceeds enough for your rig to finish crossing past all the tracks.

    This is the case whether pulling a hazmat load -- or not.

    And my reasoning for working for companies with cameras is justified yet again... So someone had nothing better to do than sit and watch your camera all day? I thought those things only alerted because of "an incident".

    (I figured it was because of either a camera or a ticket)

    On the plus side, your NEXT company likely wont hold that against you and you wouldnt want to work for one that did, and also Im guessing you will never work for another company that has them :)

    I get it when the camera's catch speeding, Close following & improper Lane changes.... But when you have these safety coaches whom are not drivers & never have been...it's a no win situation.... I tried to argue that point. And all the guy told me was he doesn't need to be a driver to be in his position....So I don't know..
