CA is having all trucks not retrofitted now, to be registered....I still haven't gotten my paperwork sent into them. What these documents will do is basically give CA all the info on your truck, so that when the rulling goes into effect in 2014, they will have all your info in their computer,and when you cross the scale, they will know whether your retro fitted or not...So no sneaking into CA after 2014 ..

My truck is so alarm and retrofitted that I can't even pass gas without an alarm going off to let me know that there's bad air somewhere.

Is that to do with emissions and pollution issues and such???

What bugs me is the 55 speed limit. I'm not a speed junkie, I can't be - I'm governed at 62. But I had to repower a load from donners pass to CA and I was soo tight on time. It was either go 55 and be late or go over the speed limit and not be late but risk a ticket and csa points. That's my fuss with my home state.

I'm strictly western 11, I have had to chain over Donner Pass twice since December

England made us watch an aweful video about Donners pass. I do like telling people the story of Donners pass and the Donner party. Alot of people accually dont know about the Donner party. Its not trucking, but its history and I love history.

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.
