    Noise from a safety engineer recommending the use of 500 psi of nitrogen to test an air tank in a truck.

    Back to the original post 'Zero tow policy'

    Sound like someone had an issue with a light vehicle towing something, so instead of sorting out that issue, they disengage their brain and make a policy to blanket cover every towing situation, sit back and be proud.
    Then engage brain and realise what they have done, stuffed up... And wonder why the company didn't get the next contract.
    Push pull scrapers are designed that way to load faster and be more economical for the job.

    I agree we must work safely and be safe while in work, after work you get that strange feeling again 'Common sense ' maybe some time in the future we will get it back while in work.

    Years ago here in the wonderful state of MN they were going to ban surge brakes or did ban them. That was until MNDOT figured out that they owned a lot of surge brake trailers.

    The MNDOT maintainance department is constantly getting raked over the coals by DOT enforcement and we dumba** taxpayers foot the bill for the whole comedy show.
