    Going into CA via I15 and got hauled into an inspection bay.

    I was very glad I took that load back to the terminal to be reworked.

    He said my tandems were like 1 notch too far back. But he didnt care.

    On my paper he gave me after inspection it listed tandem airhose "chafed" under violations section. Just "a small part of it."

    I did not receive a citation. Can that still apply a point on my CSA score?

    Went back and checked my hoses and they looked fine to me. I dont know. He just said to get it fixed before I pick up another load.

    If it's on the inspection, yes, it does count towards CSA

    Ah, the old “chafed air line” card...

    Troopers with an agenda will pull that one when they can’t find anything else.

    And they wonder why owner-operators protest...:(
    If we’re being scrutinized and punished (with CSA scores and subsequent higher insurance rates), brokers should be scrutinized and punished as well.

    I assume something like that is just 1 point?

    He said it was on drivers side and it looks the same as the passenger side.

    Any way to dispute that or do I have to just eat it for the next 3 years

    No way to dispute that. This is why this whole CSA score is BS most of the times.

    Ask him to show it to you next time and get it on camera. Post to YouTube with his name and badge number and salary.

    Easier said, than done. The reason this “agenda-driven” trooper told OP that his tandem were a notch too far is to suggest that he could write both violations if OP tries to dispute this one violation.
    I personally know a diver who got 7 citations because he was trying to argue a single one. So I don’t know if it’s worth all this YouTube fame.
