AUTOSOCK SNOW SOCKS TRACTION DEVICE

Greetings forum,

Does anyone have experience with these fancy shmancy tire socks? The price is steep compared to good ol’ tire chains but thankfully I’ve been blessed by trucking (indirectly thanks to this awesome site) to be able to afford them. Any trucker out there own them? Just looking for an honest review of the product.

Thank you in advance

Mid Florida Campus CDL A program

Formerly known as Mid Florida Campus and part of Orange Technical College. Located in the Central Florida Orlando area.

Greetings TT forum,

I wanted to start this thread simply for there to be info on the CDL school I recently attended and graduated from. Great school, awesome experience, & not a single complaint to be truthfully honest. Bret mentioned he attended this school though not for a CDL program. Anyway, so as to avoid sounding like a I am promoting the school I will cut this short. Simply google the names I provided and give them a call. Their weekly orientation is quite informative and will give you an overview of the entire program, which includes CDL B courses as well.

Using a DRONE for backing

Greetings forum,

I viewed a YouTuber's video who posts recorded footage of himself backing into parking spots at truck stops. His video includes him commenting on his own skill, such as where he could improve and the such. He clearly and emphatically states that he is NOT controlling the drone as he is parking. The drone hovers over him.

So, my question to the forum will is:

-Can anyone help explain if these drones simply record ONLY or do they provide real-time footage via some sort of screen inside the cab thus serving as an eye-in-the-sky?

Your general thoughts & comments are obviously welcomed
