Yep prime has a 6.5 minute training video to be watched. After that youvjust have to knpw where the permit on the app is so you can show the nice officer he doesn't have to fine you today.

Just to be safe I exported a copy of that permit to my email and saved it on my phone. My luck the one time I'll be asked to produce the digital copy of that permit I won't have any phone signal.

Good idea to download that permit. I got it done. I live in one of the highlighted counties here in South Jersey. I'll have to make sure I inspect my truck for these pests before I get rolling again.

Would rolling through a truck wash be an option to get any eggs off? Ain't no way I'd be climbing on top of a trailer to inspect up there.

Unfortunately there will be plenty of people that dont take the precautions and spread them. Some violators will get caught, unfortunately many will get away with it.

Good question. Never thought of checking the top of the trailer.

Makes me wonder what a driver can be ticketed for. I mean, does a driver get a ticket if a nest is found on their truck or trailer during a DOT inspection?

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

I wonder. We can get a ticket for ice and snow on the top of a trailer, which is sort of beyond our control (as in basically no feasible way to remove it for more than 95% of us).

The Prime video reminds me of Starship Troopers propaganda scenes. Swat, Smash and Scrape those bugs! We're at war with the bugs! Kill'm All!!

Apologies, momentary laps there.
