<TALL IN ABQ>
I got in an accident with a live truck over the weekend. It was my falt. And the station has let me go. Wanted to know how hard it will be to work in the business after this.
The first live truck I ever drove didn't have any interlocks or alarms. In fact, since our receivers had fixed antennae on the towers and couldn't be tuned, some of our photogs would occasionally tune the truck in marginal signal areas by driving it back and forth with the mast extended until they got a hit.Originally posted by <Crash>:
Don't you guys have a warning indicator in the vehicle that tells you the mast is still up ??
You can't START our truck if the mast is still up...the mast sensor disables the ignition. I would think that should be an integral part of the truck's design.
