They don't have to wright a citation for sca points all they have to do is note defects. Such as the time my turn signal burned out in route. I got 6 sca points for. No citation, no ticket, just noted on my inspection forum. My understanding is they don't like to give tickets for this stuff sense you can fight them in court but there is nothing you can do with just a warning or a inspection forum.

Didn't know that, thanks. How then did he come up with 57? Seems excessively high.

57 dose seam high, we hold have to know how many infraction he found on the failed level 2 and what they were. The feds give grant money for finding things wrong some officers are cool, and if you can fix a defect right then and there they let it slide others, will wright you up and then you can fix it. I have had it go both ways.

OK. Here are the codes and descriptions:

393.48A. Inoperative/Defective brakes, 5th Axle Passenger Side

392.9A2. Failure to secure equipment. Rear airlines in contact with pavement.

*Well they were all on the ground because the spring thing holding them up broke in half apparently while I was driving.

393.45A-HJS. Hydraulic brake tubing improperly joined or spliced.Service line to Axle 5, wear extends through reinforcement ply.

393.55D3. Defective ABS indicator.

* It worked that morning on my pretrip and at my fuel stop in Zanesville OH.. the only 2 times I had stopped lol.

14 driver points total? (4+2+4+4)

Failure to secure the air hose is 2 points, right? And the three 4 point problems were all the result of the hose securing spring breaking, except maybe the ABS light?


Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Ok so how is that weighted? And does it drop by a third each year, or does the total stay for 3 years (that's what my other half said)?

Could maybe the weighted score be 56 or 57?

I would love a detailed lesson on how all this works. I know it would be complicated to do, but then so was the high road.

I think that would be helpful to both rookies and experienced drivers too because it is confusing.

Where is "Rickipedia" when I need him?

Wow that was scary. I'm glad you're okay. That's a fear I have too. I'm on the I70 on my way to Pennsylvania too. I'm going to heinz.
