I have multiple logbook violations over the years that I wasn't ticketed for. Everyone has logbook violations in the industry-it's part of the job of getting all the stuff people buy to them.
have you had 70 federal violations in 12 days like this guy

Maybe read the whole story:
Sidhu was likely unaware of his log book responsibilities and unqualified to be in a truck that size on a secondary road, Scott Thomas, father of Evan Thomas, told reporters. He questioned the lack of federal oversight of the trucking industry.

“Maybe if more people had eyes on this situation, Mr. Sidhu never would have got on the road, let alone been in a position to violate that many traffic regulations,” Scott Thomas said.

So?? That doesn't mean he doesn't feel remorseful for what happened. People break driving laws every single day, and if they got in an accident that doesn't mean they wouldn't feel remorseful.

I understand that this is your opinion, that doesn't make it a fact.

Actually in this case the company was also under fire - go back and read through this because it's obvious there's going to be a repeat of discussion that has already occurred.

I have my own personal opinion on this matter, since I didn’t lose a loved one in this tragedy my opinion means nothing.
I don't give a damn whether people/posters like me or dislike me, I'm not on earth to win any popularity contests.

Like Old Trucker I have worked for a couple lousy companies telling us to all lie on our logs and even avoid the scales.
I think I have only worked for one company that didn't ask me to bend the truth a little, and it is a division of the Castlegar professional driving school. Since I lived 3 minutes from their shop they asked me to stand by whenever someone was cutting it close.

I still voted to send him back to India but out of principle
I know it wasn't intentional. I know he will suffer from the memory for the rest of his life. If I had a family member on the bus I would have even forgiven him by now.
However I also believe others may use the case as precedent in court if we don't send him packing.

What I am now starting to wonder about is what will he be returning to in India.
Will it be a normal lifestyle or will he be subject to cruel and inhumane punishment?
The answer could change my vote.

Seems like the general consensus is the driver IS remorseful and why there is support to have him stay in Canada.

I guess I'm just cold hearted, but I feel when you are given a new chance in a great country like Canada and you use that chance to mow down a bus load of kids, you don't deserve a second chance.

I can even feel sympathy for him, but I don't think staying is fair.
