Recently, I was on I80 in Indiana

I passed a car pulled over by a trooper. Shortly thereafter, the same car passed me at a high rate of speed. About 10 miles later, this car was pulled over again. Long story endless, this happened THREE times before I didn’t see this idiot again. Makes me SMH in disbelief

Lol BK, hope he/she likes those 3 speeding tickets in a short period! WOW, can be expensive, and may lose their license or a good suspension. Deservedly so ! (If they even have a license) lol

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Any driver that inept, stupid, or uncaring should not be allowed to drive. Harsh?

Sound about right for I-80 in Indiana. My radar shows vehicles hitting 100+ probably weekly, even clocked one at 122 MPH. People weaving in and out of traffic, passing on the shoulder, tail gating trucks doing it too.

Queue the sound bite "if you're gonna be stupid you better be tough"

I wonder if they just have the money to hire attorneys and/or donate to local District Attorney campaigns to get them dropped/reduced or just paid outright or they're just rock dumb 😂😂

On this note, I'm thinking young, dumb, and entitled.

Queue the loser (thinking he's a winner) here: Teen doing 151 in a Beemer before killing Six.

Sad. RIP, workers. Glad they finally LOCKED UP this idiot.

Back in college a friend of mine got pulled over 3 times between Oxford, Ohio and Red River Gorge in Kentucky going on a weekend camping trip. 2 tickets 1 warning. Scary thing is the guy was Navy ROTC and later went on to be an officer on a nuclear submarine. Hopefully his decision making was better on the boat.

Saw a video clip on the AsianMai show the other day. State trooper pulled over a CRST truck (no surprise) Was standing in the open passenger door, talking to the drive (never saw driver in cops camera) His patrol car parked in back at about 15 degree angle. Well, another semi, had some kinda issue with another car? So truck, is in right lane, went into shoulder, hitting patrol car spun it around couple times into the ditch/shoulder. Then slams into CRST left half of the trailer, tearing it apart, was NO left door left !

Quick shot about 200 yards ahead all you saw was black smoke and barely a set of doubles in the air (trailer my guess) My seen final result of the short clip/accident All you saw on impact from officers body cam, was him holding onto the grab handle for dear life, being tossed around like a rag doll, but he held on !

Another proof of NOT parking on the shoulder !

Doubles:

Refers to pulling two trailers at the same time, otherwise known as "pups" or "pup trailers" because they're only about 28 feet long. However there are some states that allow doubles that are each 48 feet in length.
