Friendly Neighborhood Former Technician
Because I have tried this with other things and I get answers that aren’t answers. There has to be some black n white on it somewhere.Why don't you call up your safety department and ask their opinion? I've been driving for a couple of minutes longer than you have, and this isn't the first time the subject has come up. I related the experience of one driver. That got it launched into company safety briefings, and ye olde carrier's legal department weighed in as well. You follow the directions of the cop: they have the law their side.
BTW, in post #4 you sounded pretty outraged that you might be asked to move.
