Passed a Level one, random roadside inspection, but still assessed CSA points?

    Sorry, but his commentary on the inspection are empty words. He wrote a faulty item in the violation section so that equals a violation. It doesn't have to make sense, it's the law. It sucks, but you have a non-zero PSP and your company got dinged on their CSA score.

    All that PSP and CSA crap must have been introduced after my time... like everything else in this world, trucking seems to have become overly and perhaps unnecessarily complicated. :confused:

    Trucking companies have CSA scores. Drivers have PSP .

    Actually it depends which light was burned out. In Texas you are required to have 2 operational lights showing the cab width. If an inside light was burned out it’s not required and isn’t a violation. If it was one of the outside one it’s a violation.

    If he put on the form that there was a light was out .... & "needs to be repaired within 15 days". its going to be considered a violation. Even if it was a warning, or not a violation... Your going to get CSA points that there was a DOT violation on the truck.

    You passed. But it wasn't a clean inspection. You're still eligible for the sticker.

    Why are you angry? You had a marker light out.
