    I could care less if they get mad. It’s my CDL not theirs. I’m not shy about letting them know. I told them to their face over and over “I do not answer the phone when I’m driving.”. Whatever it is can wait. Handling a cell phone while driving a commercial vehicle is among the worst violations you can engage in. And I’m certainly not willing to violate that so some dispatcher doesn’t get butt hurt.

    Well if it's an important message about a family member I'm keeping the phone close, because then I need to know what is going on and get home possibly quickly.....
