Re: Another DOT question in reply to S2710, 03-04-2012 15:22:31
It really doesn't answer all the questions because the states have come along and written laws that override the federal laws and the DOT cops are judge,jury and executioner on the side of the road. Most people won't question them because of being redtagged. If a few good people would haul them into court and let the judge decide, a lot of this crap would stop.Once you win sue them for down time,towing and storage bills. I know of more than one occasion where then DOT cops have lost.Most people think it is just easier to pay the fine.

FWIW, have seen ESTIMATES that on a national basis, of 100 charges/tickets levelled by Federal/state/local DOT's, about 90 are uncontested to the tune of about $600 each; about 4-5 are contested UNsucessfully for around $2k each including attorney fees; the rest are contested sucessfully/dismissed for about $1k attorney fees. Interestingly there seems to be a potential discrepancy as to what dollar value the DOT considers income/compensation versus what the IRS rules define.
