    Makes me wonder how that works when the FEDS say you can,and the State says you can't. As I explained earlier as long as it is a PRIMARY move from disablement/arrest we can do pretty near anything we want. Guess there are still some advantages to living in the Piney wood. T.C. PS,It's STILL dumb not to allow experienced operators to clear a scene in the fastest SAFE method possible.

    I don't know about in your area, but this is what I ran across this past Tuesday night; Call comes in at or around 0000 hrs, of a subject attempting to pull a 16' wide 50' long single wide trailer with a flat bed dump truck. Caller advised that subject had gotten stuck coming out of the trailer park and was blocking the entire road. By the time we located the subject he had made it out and was heading down the highway. Least to say he was blocking both lanes of travel. Anyway we get him to pull over into a parking lot and start to go over this "rig". No oversize load permit, no chase car, truck's tag, inspection and insurance was out( last current in 05'), bald tires, bad air breaks, no breaks on the trailer, no warning light on the back of the trailer, only running two axles instead of three on the trailer, the trailer lacked a safety chain to the truck, on top of the ball not being locked and the list went on and on and on. While we were checking the truck out, the driver is running around with his tire pressure gauge checking his tires, and says "well at least I won't get wrote up for low pressure." The Trooper that was with us stated that he had never seen anything this stupid in his 24 years on the job. He called in the Motor Carrier Trooper from one county over to assist us and by the time he got done writing the driver ended up with $1500.00 worth of tickets. Anyway we put the guy out of service and told him he could not move it until he got everything up to snuff. Well to make matters worse this rocket scientist gets caught driving again 4 1/2 hrs latter. But at least he had ducked tape a flash light to the back of the trailer. What a dumb arse!

    Check out the damage he did to the his trailer and the way he has the "sleeper box" hooked/chained to his truck.

    Yup,seen that before. Around here they hang T11 wood siding all over 'em and put on a pitched roof; THEN they try to move 'em on the ORIGINAL axles and tires. NEVER works good. I've moved 4 traveling houses in my lifetime and that's FOUR too many. T.C.

    Why do you think he was trying to move it under cover of darkness? Cause he knew he couldn't get away with it during daylight.
    Around here the deputies would have put him OOS and called the 800 unit from state police truck squad to do a complete commercial inspection , Fines would have been much higher.

    That was for the first set of tickets. I believe that the total cost to this knuckle head was @ $4,000.00 to $5,500.00 after getting caught a 2nd time. If brains was gun powder this guy would not be able to blow his own nose.

    Down in Bull's neck of the woods they make corn squeezing's from bright yellow corn.

    Since you asked, No I am not now nor have a ever been a Earnhardt fan. When I watched NASCAR, I was a died in the wool Bill Elliot Fan. I have not been to or watched a race in the last 6 years. It's too much like wrestling on wheels, now a days.

    You live in NC and are not a NASCAR fan? Couldn't they eject you from the state for that?

    I don't know what puts me to sleep faster on a sunday afternoon when it's on TV- Golf or NASCAR. At my previous career house, I worked with a bunch of rednecks. One time when I walked through the TV room on a sunday afternoon, I said "Hey!! I didn't know Hee-Haw reruns were on!!!!!" That got me the reply of "You better watch out when you leave tomorrow! We'll send the posse after you!"

    My reply to that was "Send them. I'll just make a few right-hand turns, they'll get all confused, and won't know what to do!"

    I wont tell you the reply THAT got.

    And if you were due to work the 24 hour shift on a Saturday before a NASCAR Sunday at Dover, Delaware, and you were going to be on the mandatory overtime list to work OT sunday, you either packed for 72 hours straight or sicked out saturday, because I guarantee Sunday morning there were an awful lot of sickies!!!!!!!!!!

    Reminds me of the guy who was clicking back and forth between porn and golf. Back and forth. Finally his wife said would you just get on one channel and stay there?

    The guy asked which channel should he watch, the woman replied Porn, you already know how to play Golf!
