Our employer owns vehicles they expect me to drive.
I have shown on many occasions that the vehicles are unsafe.
I have proven that the mechanics they use are less than attentive.
My life was put at risk on 2 different occasions - one was a blown - dry rotted front tire that should have been replaced years prior. The other was a fuel spill that could have ignited.
Both were preventable with good maintenance.
I know the law says I am required to not drive a vehicle I feel is unsafe.
I also know I'll be fired if I push the issue any further than I have. I also know that if I get oshea involved, my employer will know exactly who spoke with them.
I need my job.
What do I do?

Get it inspected and point out to the mechanic all the mechanical problems, and take the sheet to your employer. You will have a Sabine Pilots (Name of a case) case if they fire you for refusing to violate the law.
