With the oil boom, there are a lot of other fish to catch and overweight, unsafe vehicles that are probably higher on the radar than some guy like me hauling a clean bobcat with a clean truck, clean trailer, and sufficient tie-downs and good tires.

The last time I did get pulled over it was the local sheriff's dept. they were giving me a courtesy warning about not being able to see my license plate. The trailer was a DOT certified trailer, inspected, etc., The deputy called DPS on the spot and he was told that I was legal though not seeing the license plate could be probable cause to pull over and look for other violations.
Agree, I've had my CDL-A since 1988, I see some of the worst trucks on I-35 daily, even subs working our projects are driving junk dumps and speak no english????? I love calling the CVE unit on these guys.....they don't mess around......

I agree, although in MN the laws change quite a bit every year. If you're not regularly driving a vehicle that requires a CDL but do occasionally its tough to keep up. Hell even the DOT doesn't seem to know what the hell they are talking about sometimes.

Obviously you do not. Seriously what do you have to gain by acting this way? The CDL knowledge Award?
