Is it always like this in Pilot truck stops?

PRE-ELD/AOBR there were a few speeders in the lots, but it's insane now. Everyone racing that damn clock ticking down.

Just another example of the Law of Unintended Consequences, and as usual, inflicted upon us those in DC who are doing their best to make us safer.

I understand your point, but the real problem is the driver that feels need to race the clock. I take my time I’m not in a hurry per se but I do everything with a purpose. I don’t let that clock run me. I do what I can do in a day. I plan every day for 10 hours so I have some cushion time. Things pop up, yes it frustrating but it is what it is. My running that way hasn’t impacted what I make. Taking time hasn’t impacted what I make, helping others with securement hasn’t impacted what I make, helping others fold tarps when I could be rolling out, hasn’t impacted what I make.

Some people just can’t accept that mentality. Every second must be spent at wide open throttle, yelling at shippers/receivers for not being quick enough. Not being courteous to other people. All because they let that electronic countdown run their life.

That 30 minute break can **** off. Switch to USA HOS and it saying I need THIRTY minutes off. **** off I just stopped to use the little boys room and was stopped for 23 minutes **** it I’m switching back to Canadian HOS.

Like who in the actual **** actually expects drivers to ****ing stop for THIRTY ****ing minutes EXACTLY and who ****ing thinks 30 minutes is better than 23 minutes anyway

God dam POS HOS ELD can **** off

He's been like that since day 1 on the forum. He thinks he's cool coming down here and breaking our laws.

If he was a Mexican driver doing the same thing all y'all would be pissed.

Nope. Just leave it kicked to Canadian HOS and don’t even think about following USA HOS.

Why bother trying to start obeying USA hos, speed limits, weight limits or parking laws

We keep doing our thing

Because you're not in ****ing Canada but south of the border.

You are in a foreign country with our own rules.

Because it's against our laws, and you're a guest in our country. As mndriver mndriver said, it's because of people like you that we have all the bullshit we have now.

I blew past your weigh stations up in The Canada. Not sure why other than being a brand new driver and panicking at the idea of entering a foreign weigh station.

Were you afraid they were going to be too polite?
