I got pulled over by D.O.T. earlier this week. After his inspection I got to talking to him. He told me that his captain passed down orders that any and all lawn trucks that appear like they are trying to make money need pulled over and inspected. The reason for this he said was everyone seems to be trying to break in that lawn care business without paying taxes on income and not even trying to obey the laws set forth for a commercial vehicle. This officer said he alone had 3 lawn care trucks and trailers towed in the last 2 weeks. If you are not legal or have no idea what it takes to become legal I strongly recommend contacting your local state trooper office and speak personally to a D.O.T. officer. Although I passed the inspection it still costed me nearly an hour of sitting on the side of the road. It would have been 10 xs as bad if I wasn’t legal and had my equipment towed. Here are my thoughts With the above said, personally I am glad to see they are doing this. I really don’t care who tries to start a lawn care business and I really do hope the ones who try succeed. I will however say I hope the low ballers get there stuff towed and forced to pay fines. In my personal opinion if we have to pay out all kinds of money to stay legal and pay taxes on our income I feel everyone should. Maybe they will start to raise there rates back to where they should be. What is everyone else’s opinion?
