Price Utah. Port of entry, head thinking about the ex and the current weather conditions, no toll pass buzzer, jerked on the brakes, probably could have made it, but it was questionable. Had to go down a few miles, then back a few miles.

Got a level 3 inspection with the citation on it, and the citation. I did refrain from any unnecessary comments on the scale workers lineage and career choices. I didn’t however refrain from letting the Leo know that he was number one in my book by way of one finger salute on the way out of the scale, for which he followed me out of town as a courtesy I'm sure.

268.00 fine for failing to obey a traffic signal. Contemplating getting a lawyer on it as its worth the money to me if it gets changed to a non moving.

Irritated about it. Not the end of the world but a blemish none the less.

Yep I’d get a lawyer and see what could be done for sure.

Davy, yeah that’s a bummer. Did you get stopped by a LEO before you turned around? I’ve blown by several weigh stations because I was in the passing lane and the truck to my right blocked the signs. When I realized that I needed to pull in, it was too late. I think it happens to many drivers. You, however, admit that you were distracted by other thoughts, so this one is on you. Not trying to be harsh, because I respect you very much. But it’s just something you need to take responsibility for. Sorry that this happened to you. Hang in there, man.

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.

I’d also keep the thoughts of the woman in check, those kinds of distractions can kill a man.

Yep, what he said. Also I wasn’t fully awake when I replied so, didn’t mean to rain on your already bad day. It’ll all be okay, there’s worse that can happen out here, just gotta keep your head in the game son that’s all! 😃😉

Am I reading this right? You flipped off What I’m guessing was a state trooper?
