Toby W.'s Bio

I was a middle school IT teacher for 13 years and the district technology director for the last four. I'm ready to jump ship and get away from the politics and the people. It will be nice to get out of my windowless basement office too.

Garmin Dash Cam 20

Stay away from the Cobra CDR 840. The 12v plug overheated and melted. I use the Transcend Drivepro 200 now. Works great.

Told to drive when it's obvious you're too tired.

I haven't posted on here in months, but I read quite a bit. If there's one cardinal rule I've learned about trucking it's that you don't drive when you're too tired to do so. Good rule. I ran across a YouTube video tonight (many of you may have seen it already) where a driver was too tired to drive. He recorded the phone conversation he had with his company and I was shocked at what I heard. Is the treatment this driver received typical? What's your experience with this?

Truck Driver Too Tired To Drive

A truck driver who is too tired to drive is having a conversation with dispatch about getting some sleep and re-assigning the load.
