there a mess, it has helped safety, at least around here as we have many trucks which are lets say minority owned and in such bad shape they shouldnt even be on the road, when one of these guys sees a crusier he quickly calls his compardres, and all go hide, i mean in 10 minutes the truck traffic is 1/3 of what it was, still its who you know that counts one of these guys has hit something with his truck a freightliner, he still on the road every day, he has; the 1/2 of the bumper thats still on the truck held there to a shattered hood fender assembly with baling wire, no headlites present on the truck at all, 1 turn signal on the right front fender, and no rear mud flaps present, i garentee you such a pos wouldnt even leave our shop, let alone get onthe road, but if it did i couldnt get 5 miles and id be headed for the jail and the judge , the other problem i personally have experienced here is dot cops who i guess are supposed to be under a superior cops supervision for training, instead there out here on their own, the problem is they dont know enough about a heavy truck to know whats right and whats not right, a buddy of mine got a ticket with a brand new mack ch series, still had the paper sticker in the windshield, the problem was a "air leak" said air leak was actually the front axle brake delay valve- working as intended but because it went pssst, and the cop didnt know what it was, he decided to issue a ticket for it, it got thrown out of court due to my buddy having a certificate sent from mack trucks inc. describing the valve, its purpose and the fact that it was a factory installed part, as all newer trucks have also , kind of nice if the truck cop actually knew something about trucks, lol kind of like right now we got a dr running for the sheriff's job this dr is such a quack that the local hospital doesnt allow him to practice on its premises,his patients have to be turned over to another dr, now he wants to be the sheriff, im just a redneck but to be a sheriff wouldnt it be good to have a background in law enforcement? lol
