Time to sell the Ferrari!


Recommended Posts

A big new combine broke down on a local farm. The dealer sent the technician out to take a look but he couldn't start it. Turned out the finance had been arranged through the manufacturer, the farmer hadn't been up to date with his payments so the manufacturer switched the combine off from their office in Germany πŸ˜‚

Mentioned before but a large maintenance contractor in Wales fitted trackers unbeknown to employees, sacked thirty of them Monday morning, had to reinstate them a month later with back pay as they didn't get them to sign a disclaimer knowing the had a tracker on board....

The trackers on utilities vehicles can tell them back at head office what speed you’re doing and what the speed limit is on the road you’re driving at that moment in time! No quite limiters but as good as

Got them on our work vans..they also pick up on harsh breaking,over revving the engine..my Merc van has sensors that stop you driving up the car in fronts arse..every time a f***ing clown pulls in front of me..the van breaks and alarms go offπŸ™ˆ f***ing dangerous if you ask me πŸ‘

Ive got a tracker on the work van, steering, acceleration, braking, speed all fed into a computer to tell me how shit a driver I am, and every 2 hours gotta stop for a break or it reports me to fleet

I had one on the van on my last job, consistently number 1 driver πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘Β πŸ˜

If you think trackers are bad..some large plant firms "Blackwells" being one..have cameras inside the cab watching the operator aswell as cameras on the outside of the machine.

The company I'm working for has cameras on the outside constantly recording. If there's an accident a firm comes in and downloads the footage for the manager to view...

This is the front camera.theres 1 on the back aswell.and the hard drive is in the cab.

AP Webb have the same, saved some operators their jobs and cost others theirs, our firm want to put the face cameras in our vans, they make a noise if you look like you're falling asleep, I'll be well pissed off if something wakes me up when I'm napping on the m4 on the way home
