    Some jurisdictions, maybe even all of them, Restricted Truck Route tickets are "misdemeanors".

    Park rangers are federal law enforcement officers. I'm pretty sure they have the ability to do whatever a DOT officer can, in most cases; unless it was a non-commissioned officer. It should add points if it's a legit ticket and not a warning or printed on the park's internal letterhead.

    Look at the ticket- does it have a municipal, state, or federal header/footer to it? Where does it say to submit payment?

    Definitely fight it either way.

    The only way it will affect your companies CSA score is if it was a violation on a CVSA inspection form.
    No inspection form, no points on CSA.

    No inspection=No CSA points.

    And im pretty sure there isn't any points for this offense anyways.

    [do written warning show up? For incorrect plaqureds?
    I had corrosive on... And a rainstorm got rid of all of them... I had two extras from the shipper with the correct 4 digits for the materials... Two were basic corrosive materials... The last one was supposedly a document from the shipper didn't show rq next to it even though an x signifed it was hazmat...
