    Does anyone has any info on the DOT week? I guess it has started today. Not sure, I wasn't driving for the last 3 days. So, have no clue. Does anyone know anything about it? I would appreciate any information.
    DOT officers are really really mean right now.

    So is it actually happening? I mean, it is not different. But I usually know about what's going on, and this time, I wasn't informed. So, just wanted to see if anyone else know about DOT Week.

    The 72 hour safety check was a couple weeks ago. The brake check week is coming up. Not sure what days because it really doesn't matter. I drive where I have to drive, when I have to drive. Get it, got it, Good.

    The only issue I have us that there is a bigger chance of having them force me to take an unplanned brake while I wait for them to tell me that my truck is good to go.

    Now if they could do it some place that had good scenery, food, shower and other facilities I would be happy to wait.

    They are welcome to stop by the yard or shop and check the equipment any time they like.

    My friend got the same violation in different states. Was put out of service for 10 hours. That made him late for his appointment. Now, sitting at the delivery. His appointment is rescheduled for 24 hours from his previous. Has a tough beginning of the week. Police officers and Weight Stations are really tough these days.
