    Colorado stopped me once at Lamar. She said she pulled me in cause I didn't have the Vin on there. I told her that having the Vin on there wasn't legally required. She told me that was correct but if I had had the Vin on my truck I wouldn't be standing there talking to her.
    Only need it on the right side anyway.

    They can only fine you if you're based in Colorado. Otherwise, it's not required, and they can NOT fine you for it.

    Again, not required.

    Only thing required is company name, and US DOT#. That's it. The rest is fluff.

    Yeah but they will stop you.

    DOT said I will keep getting stopped until I get a truck number on the side of my truck.

    Have the minimum legal size stickers made with the number being "Eleventeen". Bet they won't stop you any more.

    I hope at least it was the good looking female officer in Lamar… lol

    I was pulled in there and I do have my VIN on side just because of Colorado. I got the feeling they were looking for folks cheating on logs.

    I guess I should say I have an older truck and can run paper. That was the first thing she wanted to see and what she spent the most time on. Thumbing through everything else took very little time. I run ELD though and she seemed disappointed so I laughed a little bit inside.
     
    Dadetrucking305 and goga Thank this.

    It was her. My boss had the Vin put on the right side. Then the next time she pulled me in anyway.
