    The story I got was he pulled over to use the phone, where I don't know. He was in a bad signal area, so the message didn't go through right away. By the time it did get sent he was driving down the road, and was subsequently terminated in one of those audits they do.

    That's a raw deal if ever I've seen one.

    I do get it. 2 building mounted cameras, I do NOT know if some store has developed an evil use of those cameras, Do you know for a fact that this is being done on a chain wide basis? Is it in the driver manual? While I totally do hate firings for sending a message, with no defense allowed. Yep that sucks! I’m basically in agreement with you, but many times
    Topics here are just BS and fantasy. Yours was firsthand and obviously true. Sorry if i was in the “Fog”. Although I can’t defend lack of Pre-trips.

    Driver verses CCTV

    Driver loses every time he lies on his logbook.

    If it's true and not made up because he got fired for another reason and doesn't want to admit it.

    It’s true,there was an article on it. IIRC he was driving through Illinois when the issue happened. Actually it was Nestle.
    Trucker accused of texting and fired over bad cell service is offered his job back, backpay

    In some parts of the country (especially Wisconsin) there are communication “dead zones” where cellular service is poor or virtually nonexistent! I have that issue going thru Wisconsin along I-94 around Eau Claire(Verizon doesn’t like that part of the state for some reason).

    Nestle and WalMart are about equal, evilness-wise. Both of them should have heir C-suites dropped in the ocean where the sharks are feeding.
