I'm working for a different company and drive a KW which I absolutely love! But, I have no love for the seat belt at all! It not only rubs my boobies it holds me too tight!!! I am constantly having to pull it away from me b/c it gets too tight after bumping up and down the interstate for a while. I only wear it as a lap belt and place the part that supposed to go across my chest up under the arm rest on the left side. So I wear it like a double lap belt now.

Of course everybody and their mama calls my company to say I'm not wearing my seat belt because they're mad that I left them in the dust going up a hill with 52k in the trailer. Safety is having a fit but don't feel my pain soooo it is what it is.

Any suggestions???

Interstate:

Commercial trade, business, movement of goods or money, or transportation from one state to another, regulated by the Federal Department Of Transportation (DOT).

My kenworth never does that, perhaps the belt needs some sort of adjustment or maintenance or something? Ask the shop guys

Have you raised the (left) belt tie on the door post? I had a KW for a while. Swift had a little lock at the door post that would lock it a bit looser. You need to adjust this each time.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

I wanna know what kind of setup that truck has that's letting you run 52k in the box without being over gross lol.

My truck and trailer empty is 27,000 #.

Of course I haul a grain hopper. Maybe the other driver is driving a day cab?

Day Cab:

A tractor which does not have a sleeper berth attached to it. Normally used for local routes where drivers go home every night.

Use the latch that sir Errol is talking about. It's called Komfort Latch and should fix your problem. I too feel like the belt is squeezing me after a few bumps.
