    Well I got the dreaded call from DOT today, audit time. Scheduled for 11/11/09, I don't think he realized it was Veterans Day though.

    Matt you ready?

    Have you ever been DOT inspected by any of your local cops.I go through your area all the time and there was a period of time about a year or so ago when the Warwick PD,especially one cop who got DOT certified,literally waged war on all commercial trucks,he was chasing them down and doing roadside inspections all day long.he chased me down 3 times like he was chasing a bank robber! He measured my mud flaps on my trailer and said they were 3" too short,and gave me a ticket that I had to show up at municipal court for.I was told by a local business owner that business owners in the area complained to the police chief at a town meeting that they were having a hard time having contractors come to your area because they didn't want to get hassled and handed a bunch of tickets.I was talking to a landscaper there who he gave 8 tickets to and put him out of service! I still go through there and have seen him go by me and he has not pulled me over,or any trucks that I seen going by.The powers that be must have calmed him down,because every guy with a commercial truck I talked to around there had his own story about that particular cop.I have had my CDL A license since they came out and had my articulated license before that and have been inspected more times than I can count since 1986 and always have a log book,up to date medical card and keep the truck and trailer up to par,but he was one of the most aggressive DOT cops I ever dealt with.

    Safeclean, sorry I did not see your post till today.

    Anyway, audit was a lot of paperwork like any thing the gov does. when he came in he pulled out a stack about 2" thick, I now 1" to take care of and reference material.

    Q's are broken down into categories, : General - 6, Driver -22, Operations-19, Maintence - 7, Haz Mat - 19, Other -6, A lot of the Q's are n/a for me , but might apply to others because I am sole driver with only 1 vehicle.

    Out of all the Q's, I failed 7. Still passed the audit. He said the audit rules are changing in 2 weeks and will be much more diffilcult to pass.

    Anyone have questions feel free.

    Matt sent you a PM

    New York is getting harder and harder to do business in. Let me re phrase it, more expensive to do business in.
