If you think this is about safety your misinformed.

Good time to take a few days and set limb lines.

From the article, "CVSA reported that 83.5% of inspected vehicles had no violations that took a truck or a motor coach out of service during the 2021 roadcheck." 16.5% of the trucks inspected failed badly enough to be taken out of service last year.

Lots of the truck enforcement officers suck. Lawrence started a traffic unit back in 2007 and they were terrible....you got stopped and you were getting a ticket, guaranteed. Driving my tandem dump I was well under weight overall but the front axle was a little over..hauling dirt that was loaded at a job site. Told the cop that I was obviously trying to comply but had no way of weighing in the field....and I did not load the truck....he cited me anyway... and he also did a full inspection..

DOT officers are social misfits that have failed at everything else in life.

You ever been fined for working to much greenhead? I could write paragraphs but I think that says it all. Dr's, cops, all have peoples lives in their hands. One is armed and one is doing medical procedures. Both routinely work long hours. Let a trucker try to run his limit only to find no place to park, he gets a ticket. run out of time a half hour from home? C,mon. You know exactly why truck enforcement gets so little respect from drivers.

I guess I have to agree with Danny. Truck drivers lose money when the wheels aren't turning.

No never fined but i've taken many off the street that shouldn't be on the road. Exp. suspended drivers, drivers not holding a cmv license, drivers prohibited from operating under the clearinghouse, bad brakes, bad tiedowns, pitman arm, etc. I could go on and on. Hopefully I saved someones wife, husband, child, parent, grandparent by taking these drivers and vehicles off our roadways.

Sure is funny how hours of service and weight limits are exempted when your doing flood relief.

I dont need any fines right now, fuel is enough! Only drive a triaxle dump. I avoid any weigh stations.
They have been hitting the pickups with trailers hard around here. Not sure what they are looking for but I see then stopped along the highway.
