    Nope, no sarcasm. facts would be cool, just one documented example of a driver harassed while in a marked parking spot. Just one will do. Hell, I'll add that parking at a scale is one of the least likely to be bothered spot you can find. Unless you are driving junk and asking for it, then you deserve whatever they do to your POS driving ###.

    I got level 2 last year in the rest area in Ohio last May. Today I drove from Detroit to Cincinnati, almost every rest area on 75 had a DOT cop in it.

    I wasn’t, but Conway driver that was in the same area was and was inspected as well. I was pulling in and DOT got behing me and lights came on. Officer was cool , gave me clean inspection, but it doesn’t help when your schedule is tight

    You need to get out more. I can count on one hand how many times I’ve been by the rest areas just west of Columbus on 70 and not seen a DOT Tahoe in there.
     
    DSK333 and Socal Xpress Thank this.

    I'm not saying that they don't work rest stops..... Being parked illegal, not in a marked spot is an open invitation to being rolled. In over 40 yrs of this crap I've never parked on a shoulder or ramp, there are just way too many places a guy that can actually drive, can find to park. I've had local cops tell me to move on but have never had DOT show up behind a strip mall.

    Again, I'm sorry my plain english is so hard for you to understand..... was HE in a marked spot?

    Going in, going out, on the ramp all fair game, you are moving or parked illegal, it's all part of the gig, in a spot and you will not be bothered.

    They upgraded their fleet with fancy Tahoes.
    Yes he was. Stopped to use a restroom or to take a break, next thing DOT officer was asking for paperwork. I see it all the time, guys parked in marked spots at the rest area getting DOT-et.

    And I'm calling you a liar. The entire north american continent for 40 yrs, US, mexico back in the day when it was no big deal, canada, AK. Have never witnessed, nor have I ever actually met a driver that was in a marked spot that got knocked.
