You would think acs in the truck would be better for UPS in terms of productivity, i wonder how much it adds to the cost of the truck per unit.... I'm guessing less than 500, not including maintenance costs..

I think that UPS is trying to save gas by telling its drivers to drive a certain way (or is that FeDex?). I don't know how they control productivity. Are they monitoring gasoline usage? My opinion is that if the drivers really want AC, they're gonna need more than one driver's petition to get AC. I also wonder how trucks in other delivery services are equiped.
You still have to stop for a right on red. It's like a stop sign.
Yes you have to halt then if its clear you can go through the light, but it does save fuel;Virginia State Code§ 46.2-835. Right turn on steady red light after stopping, states..."Notwithstanding the provisions of § 46.2-833, except where signs are placed prohibiting turns on steady red, vehicular traffic facing a steady red signal, after coming to a full stop, may cautiously enter the intersection and make a right turn. Such turning traffic shall yield the right-of-way to pedestrianslawfully within an adjacent crosswalk and to other traffic using the intersection."

Do trucks really get 180 degrees hot?
