Sometimes easier said than done. If it is otherwise a good job, you gotta gauge where this is going long term. pointless to walk away from a job, to a potentially worse job, only to find out 6 months later they are getting the cameras as well.

The trucking industry won't fight this. A few articles will be written, and some whining will take place online, but this industry will not stand up to this.

that income has to be replaced.
These guys are rich!! They don't need a job. The job needs them.

Same people crying said the same about elogs, automatics, 14 hr rule, and reset crap, but I guess this place would be boring without them.

"Super truckers" & steering wheel holders are pretty much the same thing.

It's a shame that you haven't figured that based on the context in which the term is most often used.
Well my friend I don't follow the penut gallery's terminology. You ...... Oh Ya be nice. Call stupid truckers super? So what do you call good truckers? Beside holier than thou, Saints, goody too shoes. You mediocre steeringwheel holders don't want to see people excell. You want them to be just like you. Luke warm dime a dozen blow hards. That as you see can be easily replaced with 90 day wanna be's. Then you wAnt to push your chest out like some company gives a hot milky double espresso crap what you want pointed in your face. I call good drivers super and I call non thinking people who hold the wheel steering wheel holders. Please don't make me have to explain this to you tomorrow.

That's because the industry is full of pacifists who won't stick up for themselves.

Go to Google & type "sarcasm".

"Super truckers" is a sarcastic term for idiots who think they're super, but are actually just seat warmers.

I'm sorry you never picked up on the sarcastic use of the term.

It's funny as hell to hear somebody call themselves 'Supertrucker,' ain't it? Like it's a good thing...:biglaugh:

Why else would they have included a clip of a driver eating a sandwich while driving, but nothing in the split screen showing the forward view of the road that would have triggered a critical event? It was in a propaganda video shown to me at Magnum orientation last year.
Other drivers have reported getting phone calls for "distracted driving" after the camera uploaded something without there being any trigger event.
So basically your saying you have no proof at all. Or, are you saying Swift made public a video of a driver eating a sandwich so other companies can use it as a training tool?

Or!!!! You heard it first hand from a guy who's brothers uncles roommate at college dated a girl who knew a driver from Swift? Ya, I'll bet that's it.

I saw a video of a bunch of "incidents" put together by DriveCam. Most were accidents. It was shown on a big screen TV at orientation at Magnum. I saw it with my own eyes. He was eating a sandwich on one half of the split screen, and on the other half of the screen, nothing happened to trigger an event.


Also - in addition to seeing it with my own eyes- heard it from a few others first hand, and a few others who heard it from their brother's mail man'dog's veterinarian's wife's hairdresser's husband.

Quit being a troll.
