Is that what that was? Shots returned? Yah missed...

Perception LLB...! ...your return volley is a tad antagonistic and does come across as Snarky. Rick freakin' knows his sh**...he was sincerely trying to help you, as we all have. Not at all about taking shots at you or anyone else. Not our intent.

Some humility might help your game at this point.

That was my point. Like begging the teacher for extra credit to raise your D+ to a C- and then cursing him anyway on your way out the door.

Hmmm - if that's the case, mebbe I need to move to PA (if that's actually the case).

Where I'm at: (from FL DMV site).

If I get a ticket in another state, will I receive points on my Florida driving record? Yes, if the violation is an offense that earns points in Florida. For example, if you get a speeding ticket for going 14 miles above the speed limit outside Florida, you will earn 3 points on your Florida record. It does not matter how many points the other states would assess against their drivers-Florida treats this as though the ticket was received in Florida.

I stand 1/2-way corrected:

Although reported to PennDOT, minor traffic offenses such as speeding, red light, stop sign, etc., will (NOT) appear on your driving record, unless you are a CDL holder. Points will not be assessed to your PA driving record when convicted of a point related offense in a DLC member state.

So you MIGHT NOT get the points - but it WILL APPEAR ON YOUR RECORD.

But hey - was just trying to help.

You keep ignoring those regulatory signs though. Have a nice day.

  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.

Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

DMV:
