The new DOT is about the money. They are the equivalent of the highway robbers of old.
If the general public could be stopped and searched for any reason or no reason at all they would be outraged. For those not aware of what I'm talking about, ANY LEO can stop ANY commercial vehicle ANYTIME and search without probable cause.
Back in the day if you had a light go out LEO would stop you, give you a heads up, jaw a few minutes and send you on your way. Now it calls for a full blown inspection and a ticket with points against the driver and the company.
I have tremendous respect for LEO's but absolutely despise the politicians that made them tax collectors.
