Example text

Their shifts ended; they did not have the opportunity to do more work. SandHaul differed from every other small. highly competitive trucking company I knew of in that it demanded observance of the fifty-five miles an hour speed limit and used tachographs to enforce this rule. even though most California Highway Patrol officers allow trucks to travel fifty-nine in a fifty-five miles-anhour zone without citing them for speeding. " In effect. SandHaul's owner had constructed an incentive system that encouraged drivers to work as fast as possible and then checked this inclination by monitoring speed.

But they were restrained by a tachograph-enforced speed limit of fifty-five: PetroHaul drivers had no limits on their pace of work. but hourly pay and fifteen-hour shifts meant that they gained little or nothing by hurrying. Given that PetroHaul drivers were easily able to explain delays that appeared on their tachographs. they might be expected to exert comparatively little effort. Trucking companies. in their competition with one another and with railroads (almost all the products carried by SandHaul and AgriHaul, and most "dirty" products at PetroHaul, were loaded and unloaded near or on rail spurs), need to offer fast.
