Rep. George must have bumped his shin leaving the strip joint in the dark LOL!

3/4tons whatever sure if it makes your peabrain happy but not my dump it's bolted on and if you run into the back of that there is much more to worry about then the hitch.

IDK but Novi just took my lawn foreman to jail right in front of my customers house. Apparently he didn't take care of his last DOT violation. Cop didn't like where I mounted the trailer plate. I'm thinking of selling it all and go on government assistance.

But remember, your plate not being placed exactly within spec is a safety violation What BS the law is. I see more danger from the general public, then the commercial guys. (Scrappers fall into general public category though)

The spokeswoman and rep are both idiots. Don't rear end someone and there won't be damage.

Our gov't is populated by idiots.

I feel for you guys, pretty sure I'd be in jail along with my foreman for these idiots pulling this kind of crap. Which is all it is. If we have cops with soooo little to do in this state other than pull over guys with incorrectly mounted license plates and then jail them, we have too many cops. Yet Detroit and Flint can't get enough cops on the road to take care of the trash they have in their cities.

What a joke.

You guys try going to the media with this BS? See if they can get the public on your side and make these idiots get off your backs? Just thought.

Is anyone thinking backdoor deals with national companies yet? I can't think of any other explanation why they would try to put smaller to midsized companies out of business. I saw the Livingston County pull over Marks Tree service yesterday, brand new chipper truck?!
