    Well, there is no such thing as a warning if it's written down. That is a violation, but the officer likely doesn't realize that. It, however, did not include a citation.
    A 5-10 over isn't that big a deal, just slow down and pay attention to your speed.

    This will affect the company CSA score and it will be on your PSP report.

    You'll get csa and psp points. Cops are doing this now cause they get money from the feds for every inspection. And since you can't fight it in court, they're pretty much guaranteed to get paid.

    Only thing you can do is contest it via dataq, which won't do anything unless you have real hard proof the violation is in error.

    Not if it's the only thing on your PSP. Just be honest about it and own your mistake.

    Somebody needs to take one of those to court challenging the fact that speeding on the interstate isn't an inspection and should be written as a local speeding violation. It has nothing to do with the feds or any inspection by the state police.

    All good companies like habitual speeders. Means the freight is getting there faster.

    Let's get the terminology right. There is no such thing as a warning on the North American Inspection report. You received a warning on the report in lieu of a STATE issued citation. That report will be forwarded onto the FMCSA to be made part of the CSA score of the authority holder of that truck you were driving.

    As to "being concerned" that depends on the carrier, their rules, and what your history with the said carrier is. ONLY you can know this. In a strictly generic case, the answer to this would be NO! HOWEVER!! Right now there is another thread going on where a driver was fired because of something simple, but there was a lot of "history" there. If your record is clean, forget about this. If it is not, then I would be concerned and try to walk the straight and narrow for a while!
