    Does anyone know if a dot inspection sticker on a trailer can be used twice?
    The service guys we use for my company are using a sharpie to mark the new inspection dates on the old sticker that was hole punched the year before instead of using a new sticker I figured dot wouldn’t approve that, but my company is saying it’s not a issue

    I dont even pay attention to that sticker. I look in reg box at the inspection report date to ensure it isnt expired

    @ZVar can probably confirm, but I don’t think that sticker even needs to be there. It is the inspection report that matters. As long as you have the current report you should be good.

    Not sure about that.

    Have had more than one dot officer ask where inspection sticker was on truck or trailer, and if you didn’t know, it was a ticket for falsifying log because they said knowing where it was showed you did your pretrip, not knowing means you didn’t do one according to the dot law enforcement officer

    Sounds like someone touched his peepee in an inappropriate manner when he was young, so now he's going to take it out on unsuspecting drivers.
