Clifford now is the time to HAUL HEAVY IN TEXAS! They are too busy harrassing buses, bus drivers & bus owners that are from out of state there working the hurricane reliefs! Luckily ours passed the DOT inspections and received the cute little yellow CVSA stickers! But they are still checking log books on all buses at the weigh/check stations and random roadside stops.

Texas is really playing it safe/parinoid since the bus explosion during RITA evacuations, and the recent deadly crashes they have had!
But the problem we are seeing is that they are mainly targeting and being overly aggressive towards out of state buses and not the "known local rogue" operators! FWIW Grin  BK  Grin

Commercial!

Sorry for the confusion VAN most members here on the board realize I don't belong because I'm not a "true" busnut, as our buses are for revenue service!
But they tolerate me, and allow me to remain a member.
I do plan to convert one someday! (It's coming home from Idaho now! LOL! shhh Don't let dad know or it may not happen! LOL! Oh never mind dad's in TX and doesn't even know it's coming home yet! As a matter of fact it'll probably beat him home! LOL!)  Grin  BK  Grin
