Show me a pic of your commercial license plate on your Toyota, proof of commercial vehicle insurance and GL, and a DBA or I can easily look up your LLC on the MI.gov site and we will talk...

the incriminating words....

Ya landed some homes for a builder. Sod and sprinklers Their gonna do 350 homes this year I'm just getting the west side stuff. Fun fun

I was just wondering about sod I'm buying as much as I can now.

I was wondering what everyone gets for installs per yard average home we are doing is 15000-20000 sq ft


What does everyone charge.

I know this never occurred to you but maybe I'm not doing any commercial work in Michigan to have a need for decals on my truck. Don't think the Trooper missed the decals because he didn't. Again no violations means no violations. You deserved to be heavily fined according to your bud (Terra) , Terra should have mentored you as he knows better than to ride around doing commercial work and not displaying decals.

HB5228 which has already passed the house would change the weight limit of vehicles covered under DOT laws to over 26,000 lbs in most cases.

The lawnsite is a hobby for some, nothing like a well kept yard. Its also a great way to relieve stress after a long day at work.

Your original statement was your set up didn't have decals. You could have easily said you are not commercial, and thus exempt, but what would have been the point of your original post bragging about how your set up was up to snuff?

Either way, you've made it seem like you are either a residential posing as an LCO or you are lying about doing commercial work.

If there is a misunderstanding, it's because of the way you posted your encounter in the context of the thread.
