Money laying on the ground constitutes a moral dilemma for most folks.

Calling BS on they don't know how much money was lost. I helped develop the money tracking system used for these trucks. They will be able to do simple math at the end of the date, What the computers say they have vs actual on hand.

If they don’t know how much money there was what keeps the drivers honest, hell if that’s the case the driver took what he wanted and left the door open on purpose

Those good people that picked up the money were only worried about the environmental impact. They were trying to keep the interstate clean.

if you’re dragging a trailer and some stuff falls off, you think the guy that stops and picks it up is going to be charged

hell if they don’t even know how much they lost how can they stake claim to random bills

My only concern would be, if you are on the scene early, how long do you stay and scoop. Two minutes, 5 minutes, (you know the cops are on the way), 10 minutes. If there were 10 cars stopped and 20 people chasing bills, I would just keep driving

If I see something come out of somebody’s vehicle then I consider it there’s however if I’m driving along and there is hundred dollar bills laying on the ground and no one in site, I’m staking claim

So you pick up all these bills, supposedly not knowing where they came from. You go home and see on the news what happened and it coincides with where you were at when you picked up the money. Is it still "finders keepers"? You have no moral obligation to turn it in?

that is a dilemma, I dont know where the line actually is, I found a 20 on the side of the road during a run one time. What should I have done there? If its $100 is that ok, 1000, 10000?

you ask me why I thought charging them would be BS and then pretended like you didn’t even ask the first question

Why would it be theft for pocketing cash you found.....because it’s insured and insurance companies own the world


ill ask again if shit was falling out of your vehicle and someone picked it up, would they be charged
