Because its near impossible if not harder and more expensive to fight a ticket or get it removed from your driving record.

I'm convinced DOT is negatively biased towards CDL drivers and will issue a tickets rather than warnings. Especially if your in a commercial vehicle or even look like your driving one.

I have great respect for law enforecement. I despise the politicians who turned our cops into tax collectors.

Dean, any bias in DOT Inspectors/Troopers towards CDL rated drivers likely comes from the expectation that those holding a CDL are professionals that take their job seriously. You expect the DOT cop to know his job backwards and forwards. What relieves the trucker of the same responsibility? It's your profession or part time profession, it's your job to know what you're doing out there. If that's a " bias against CDL hoders", well, doesn't it kind of make sense?

You are correct about them being biased thats for sure. That being said a written warning counts against your record just the same as a ticket. And you can get a ticket removed from your record alot easier than a warning. Im not saying go get tickets instead of warnings but you guys cat like having a cdl and/or a commercial vehicle puts a big target on your back. It only does to some extent there are advantages to it as well. All in theory of course but what would you look harder at a half ton hauling a 1066 or a semi and 53 ft drop deck hauling that same 1066? Overkill? Maybe. But I never got a ticket for being underloaded and over secured. John

Warnings in OK don't show up in OK, however, all OHP and local law enforcement is interconnected and have computer/network access to your history, which does include any and all stops, warnings, tickets etc. Sooooo, if you got away with 2 or 3 warnings for speeding in the past because the next officer did not know about your previous ones, this time you are more likely to get one, because of the tracked history of speeding he can access.....

They do in minnesota. I was told on 2 separate occasions by 2 separate officers they would not. I got one once for speed and once for a bs equipment violation. (One of my triangles broke as I was putting them out so I only had 2 functional.) Both are on my record. John

Carry duck-tape and some stiff cardboard, a field fix for a lot of items.
