    My hubs works for a plumbing company. His boss has been known to send out texts to the ENTIRE company calling them expletives, cry babies, stating what they did wrong and how. It never goes anywhere good. If it isn't a reoccurring offense, I would say you keep that private. Now, if the driver keeps doing the same thing over and over, I've only had to put out a general statement on the topic to get the issue to stop.

    So you think that just because you “sometimes” do a full inspection that you’re clear and are one of the good-boy drivers? Not in my book. They should publicly shame you and whip you good until you learn. How does that feel driver? Good sir. I’ll never miss even one full inspection. I promise!

    So you lay on the pp covered pavement in the truckstop or in the mud at the customer. Even if you do find something wrong then what.
    I think you are just having fun and that's OK but come on driver.

    There has got to be a clean piece of pavement in the truck stop. You’re just not trying. Get yourself a coverall from Wally. There are going for around $80. But let’s be honest here. When was the last time you crawled under your truck? Yup, that’s what I thought. Now you can go on here and tell the whole crowd that you crawl under the truck almost every day, but you’re not fooling me. It is very, very rare to see someone under the truck, and if you see someone, it’s probably a mechanic or an owner operator fixing his truck. Heck, some of these drivers wouldn’t even fit under the truck. Hahaha.

    At some of the terminals there are books which shows large loss claims that shows the tractor and/or trailer involved,the drivers name ,fleet manager’s name and fleet number. It also explains the circumstances of the loss(accidents,fire,theft,etc.) and if the authorities were notified. Sometimes the driver is terminated,sometimes there are other circumstances. It serves as a reminder to maintain your vigilance. There are also some cases where photos are shown at the terminals where the trucks were wrecked in preventable accidents because the driver didn’t maintain safe following distance or driver fatigue (falling asleep behind the wheel).

    I rarely even see that. I haven't seen someone get out their truck and do a pretrip/posttrip in a long time. Maybe they fly drones around their truck or something
