    Why should the shop, (or you, for that matter,) have to clean up his mess? Isn't there a supervisor of some type around that has the balls to tell him he either cleans it up TO YOUR SATISFACTION, or he can just go down the road?

    Could be...

    I had one of MD's finest looking at me pretty hard for a while at the scale on US-13 between Delmar and Salisbury. The last time he nabbed me for a level II, he said "we'll see you next week" after he gave me paperwork back. :confused:

    Boy, there's nothing quite like feeling they've got a bead on you, is there?

    When you get popped 3 times in a month at the same scale by the same trooper, it tends to raise a little suspicion.
     
    Big Don, Dave_in_AZ and speedyk Thank this.

    Most useful advice I ever received with ten speeds is you can always figure out what gear you need to be in based on your speedometer.
    Example, if you are doing 15 mph, you should be in 6th gear... Cause 1+5= 6

    25 mph = 2+5 = 7th gear
    35 mph = 3+5 = 8th gear
    45 mph = 4+5 = 9th gear
    55 mph = 5+5 = 10th gear.

    Try it out. It works
