    So last month, I got pulled over by IOWA state trooper. And he issued me ticket for (false report of drivers record of duty status).
    My questions is for you guys out there most likely for seniors,
    Have you ever encounter this situation?
    Did you hire a lawyer to fight the ticket?
    If so what was the outcome?
    Or did you just pay the fine?
    In long run does it affect your driving license? (Points)
    Your help and feedback is appreciated.
    Thanks all.

    Might want to share more information. What were you doing, what was your "reported status."...etc.

    so basically it is a valid ticket, as your HOS was over. Sounds to me need to suck it up and take your slap on the wrist. But I'll leave it up to the more seasoned truckers here to give you their opinion.

    Wouldn't waste my time fighting that, doubt you get anywhere with it. Pay the fine and move on.

    Many teams do that and don't get caught.
    I've done it. It's a gamble and you're the only person I've heard of that was caught.

    At the terminal, I've used the fuel card of one of the mechanics to fuel my truck, to save15 or 30 minutes on my logs. I'd log "off duty", then use his fuel card to fuel and check over the truck.
    That ads up over time.
     
    rachi, Aboadam and Bakerman Thank this.
