Independent, A&M Transport owner | Herald, Calif.

“I was given a ticket for following too closely after I moved over a lane due to a police officer being on the shoulder of the road.”


Owner-operator | Houston

“All the ones I’ve had were fair for the most part. I haven’t gotten many, though. I keep my truck up. In the morning I get up and inspect it just like a DOT officer would – I check the tires and the lights and all of it.”

“Wrong lane violation – a lane restriction ticket. I was in Texas, and the ticket was $500. A car in front of me hit its brakes, and I went around it. That’s when the officer came and pulled me over. I was just trying to avoid getting in an accident.”


T.G. Baker | Sardis, Miss.

“Lane changing in California. I had to pay about $300 for that. Cars don’t let you over, and you can’t just blow your horn and force your way into the lane: You’ll cause an accident. You have to wait for your chance. By that time, sometimes, it’s too late, and an officer’s waiting right there to pull you over.”
