I've been told if a trooper notices you have a clean truck as you mentioned Turtle, that's definitely helps.

I got pulled over for doing a 1mph pass on I 80 in Wyoming. Officer was laughing when he told me it took me 9 miles to pass the guy. He let me go with a warning.

Were you impeding traffic? I dont understand why he pulled you over unless you had a long line of vehicles behind you. Maybe it was just the trooper behind you though lol

When I started the pass, no. But when I finished, there were a few, including the officer.

What happens when they find you driving while wearing a shirt like this?

The point I was trying to make was the officer assumed I was not wearing a seat belt because it was camouflaged by my color matching shirt. Once he realized I was indeed wearing my seatbelt he sent me on my way.

No bowling alleys were involved in this incident. Though the officer indeed "spared" me

Years ago when I first started driving, I was going back to the yard with my empty. He said that he clocked me doing 60 in a 55 (Commiefornia), I told him I couldn't do 60 mph in that truck because all of the cab over trucks were governed at 57 mph. Only Conventional cabs could do 60 (governed). But he gave me the ticket all the same. But what he did to my trailer was really weird. He got me for tires (all of them), turn indicators (right one was intermittent), tub clean-out hose was not secured, it was actually dangling on the road. I told him I was going into get my right tandem tires replaced. I picked the trailer only a mile down the road from the yard. He knew where our yard was, he was just looking for his quota. But I only got the speeding ticket, he wrote the trailer to the company. My dispatcher got on the horn to CHP and they gave us a pass. Luckily! But that was back in '98.

Tandem:

Tandem Axles

A set of axles spaced close together, legally defined as more than 40 and less than 96 inches apart by the USDOT. Drivers tend to refer to the tandem axles on their trailer as just "tandems". You might hear a driver say, "I'm 400 pounds overweight on my tandems", referring to his trailer tandems, not his tractor tandems. Tractor tandems are generally just referred to as "drives" which is short for "drive axles".

Dispatcher:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. 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.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.
