    I'd be doing both if switch. I like gravity drops but the extra money for pumps is tempting

    Got my 1st DOT inspection today. Haven't had one in three years I've been driving.

    Got me for a tire that needed to be changed (it's been written up on the dvir multiple times)

    And on a marker light that was out when he inspected me but started working when the sun went down.

    I was trying to see how long it took before I'd get my 1st dot inspection, 3 years it is haha

    Yeah I thought he was going to pass me but he flipped the lights on as soon as he got past. Oh well.


    I've been working 4pm -4am and recently switched to coming in at 3. So I guess they're usually done by then, I was his last inspection that day.

    The nice thing is that it does not happen often.....they really hate crawling around these trailers.....usually just a lights, tires and paperwork inspection....and then get the hell out of here.
     
    DrtyDiesel Thanks this.

    Yeah it was just a level 2.

    Thankfully I had our blank BOLs in the truck since I didn't have a BOL from the last load and I was placarded. I just got the truck and was on my way to pickup my 1st load of the night
