The DOT is back at work and Operation Safe Driver this year is July 12-18. Are you ready? This year they are going to focus on speeding. I wish they would focus on following too close. That is what I see violated most often. I guess speeding is a part of that as well. Many of these violations would be cured by simply paying drivers by the hour. Employees, that is. If you were getting paid by the hour, would you be speeding? I doubt it. The reason Lytx and all these other obnoxious cameras are around are exactly the things the po po will be looking at during the blitz. Professional drivers should not really need to change the way they drive next week or any week.
See you on the road!
Hi! Welcome. I'm Mark and I've been a professional truck driver for over 33 years, the last 19 years at the same company. It is time that drivers got paid for every minute that we work and we are treated like the licensed professionals we are.
