    Does anyone know other helpful tips/acronyms that Mass state troopers are looking for besides your ABC’s (no abrasions, bulges, or cuts) and your BBD’s (not bent, broken, or damaged). Thank you.
    Also aware of no illegal stickers (windshield) no illegal welds (rims)

    When you have dealt with truckers, and beginning truckers, for decades you will understand why a post may have 6 all caps words every now and then. Hahaha

    I can understand that based on people in my class. For example learning trip planning and doing recaps with paper logs, after 6 days (on paper 3 days in class) someone asking what line you go to between your pre-trip and en route inspection... que me smashing my face off the desk from a facepalm. I just figured it was clear I’m halfway intelligent and that listing what the abbreviations were for, would convey I knew to say the actual words and was asking for tips to help me remember things.

    I understand many dumb people see $$$ and think hey this is easy let me do this. Hence people having #### experiences with rookies. I’m genuinely putting my all into getting my CDL and want to and am eager to learn and do things the correct way. Not pointed at you haha I get you’re joking around. Just wish people before hadn’t ruined the old heads patience in the business. Just frustrating to get lumped in with them when you actually have personal and professional drive. Again it’s not all I’ve met some very helpful people as well.

    PMS - properly mounted and secured. NCBB - Not cracked bent or broken. ICD for inflation, condition and depth on tires. BEAR for belts, exhaust, alternator and radiator. ABCDF for abrasions, bubbles, cuts, dryrot and frays for rubber parts. There’s also all these abbreviations
