Hi, My husband is an OTR Truckdriver (team) this morning he was in the sleeper sleeping his 10 hours, and his partner had gotten stopped in Indiana for following to close, he got a ticket and than the cop woke up my husband in the sleeper and wanted to see his drivers license and when he showed him he also got a ticket, saying that he was in violation of DOT regulations 393-76 in the DOT handbook and my husband looked up this regulation which only says that they have to have belts in the sleeper area nothing about being in use, the cop didn't even come in the truck so how does he know, isn't that a violation of husbands 4th amendment rights and plus a violation of DOT rules that a cop or official cannot wake a driver up and disturb his sleep when he is in his 10 hrs off or e has to restart it all over again which would be impossible because than the other driver would be in violation. The new DOT regulation states 8/2 saying that the driver needs to have 10 hrs of sleep prior to driving again or he becomes a fatigue driver and that's when accident's happen, is there anything we can do to fight this ticket in Indiana and if so what. thank you
I got a logbook violation for not doing the new 30 minute break
I got a logbook violation for not doing the new 30 minute break within 8 hrs rule. I took the breaks but wrote it in on duty instead of off. He wrote me up for 4 separate days. Not a citation. Just a violation. This was in Queensbury NY. I'm licensed in Mass. Will this put points on my license? Thanx
My nephew was given two tickets in New Jersey. 1 was for possession
My nephew was given two tickets in New Jersey. 1 was for possession of an open container in a motor vehicle. The second was for consumption of alcohol in a motor vehicle. He was given field sobriety tests and passed. The officer allowed him to drive from the scene. Both look like they are fine only and no points. Do these violations have any impact on CDL licenses

I was cited for following to close (accident) and payed fine later I find my company said it was DOT reportable I do not beleive it was and even according to ticket I was not even driving a commercial vehicle even though I was, can this be changed to non DOT reportable. the car I rear ended was towed but the only reason it was, was because it was a cold day and I broke rear window all lights worked and the car was driven to a mall parking lot while police did there thing
