SOS said he did not need to register it, nothing to register, etc. It's a dedicated trailer. The only thing it can do is pump concrete. A-hole from MSP still gave him and his employee grief. He had talked to her sgt\supervisor\whatever before and called him again to complain about yet another stop. This gentleman was told she was not working that day. His reply "Well I'll be )*^(*&^ if you don't have one dedicated trooper, because she just pulled over my truck again a half hour ago."
I don't recall exactly, but I do believe the harassment stopped at this point.
For me, if I deserve a ticket, I will not give them any crap, other than just hurry up and get it done with. I have stuff to do. But I screwed up, I am not going to argue or debate. If they want to try some BS like you are referring to, then I am going to get pissed and argue\debate\etc.
That story kinda reminds me of the lady who pulled me over before. I can't remember the reason originally but she noticed I didn't have my mowers tied down (down here very few ever do) and I wasn't going far, but when I did and she then did not like the way I did it. She first insisted me on me tieing it down by main frame where all my hydro lines and deck lift linkage run. I told that was not a good idea and I could break something. Then she wanted to have me tie it down by the mower deck. That made me laugh and told her that wasn't a good idea either. Then she got really pissy and threatened to get motor carriers out. That would of been a good 30 min and I know how that would of been so I was finally like screw it. Whatever would make you happy lady.
