better to track you with..

They are already able to tell me I “excessively” backed up, made u-turns, etc. By excessively backing up, I had to explain to them that’s what it takes to go down long truck ramps to deliver the four skycrapers on my route. IDIOTS! I’m thrilled about the new scanners. The ones we have are barely hanging on and I’m tired of having a brick for a scanner.

How about replacement of our near 40 year old vehicle fleet??

Eliminating jobs to pay for this!

When your aging vehicle goes up in flames be sure to leave this in your truck. They will be pissed that you did that….they could care less about you!

They never have and never will care about us. Safety Safety my ass. Let’s buy more scanner crap when we need vehicles.

Just another thing to waste $$$ on we are so fucked

And its contract time

Can’t wait for that first below zero day in Minnesota. Im sure they will work great.

I’m sure they will work great when you need to key in a number manually or run through a menu while wearing gloves.
