    I was issued a verbal warning today for speeding. There's a stretch of highway on the Ct/Mass border where the speed limit goes from 45mph-65mph and I was clocked at 60mph shortly before the limit increases. The trooper issued a level 3 inspection and gave me a verbal warning for speed. On the inspection report the citation number is listed as "verbal", will this show up on my carrier's csa score?

    There is no such thing as a warning in regards to CSA. If it's written up, it's a violation. It goes on the comapny CSA score, and your PSP report.

    All that "verbal" means is that the violation did not also include a citation.
    Some LEO's call this a written warning, some are clueless on how it even effects CSA and think it means nothing.

    It honestly didn't even occur to me at the time that handing over my license and med card constituted an inspection. Does it matter that neither myself nor the trooper signed the inspection form? Or are there different protocols in these covid times?

    No signature might be a way to challenge the violation via DataQ, but I doubt it. And handing over the license and med card didn't make it an inspection. The officer writing up an inspection form is what makes it an inspection.

    If it is on the inspection report it shows on your csa.

    If it's wrote down it's no longer a verbal warning. I got a verbal warning for being overweight this week, officer literally looked at my weight ticket and said "better cut that back a bit," no paperwork involved at all.

    Check your CSA score, when they check verbal the warning should not carry any kind of points.

    That “verbal” is just to make you feel good. The officer put down speeding on the violation box. That will show up on your csa and psp

    The verbal is in lieu of a ticket which would make him feel bad.
