Truck Drivers NEED TO LOOK INTO A DIFFERENT JOB IF YOU CAN BE FIRED AT ANYTIME FOR 1 TICKET
I seriously do not belive that at all.
Also more then 1 way into the trail

So for you guys out there that don't understand with a commercial license you get no opportunity for driver's training to remove the point off your record. You also have to legally report all incidents to your employer within last I heard thirty days. Either way any half ass reputable employer of commercial drivers runs their dmv records once a quarter at least some once a month. With all of the lost jobs I can tell you as another guy with a commercial license there are a ton of guys with clean records trying to get your job its way competitive out there. So the guy does have a lot to lose here and many companies fire for two points some for one. Either way the insurance company will not cover you so your fired anyhow.
So here's what I got from the thread.
I am switching to geico so I can get liability on my green sticker buggy
I already knew you get a ticket on that road I saw it happen on a pbb cleanup. So that's why I bought a 4x4 diesel so I can drop truck and trailer in the spillway.
Do not stir up stuff with local police it will easily spill over into the other agencies. I treat them with kitten gloves and nothing but respect. Next time you fight a ticket keep it civil and quiet.
Get a reality check this instance alone can easily indirectly close the road to the trail effectively closing the trail. 'nuff said

|Sirg2424||I have been watching this thread for some time now. Congrats on getting it knocked down. I was wondering if the Judge asked for proof of insurance, or if that even came up?|
|12-08-2010 08:10 AM|
Judge probably reduced the fine amount due to the no signage issue. The remaining fine amount was based on the citation and related Code regardless of the signage.
Pretty cool he knocked it down. Now hopefully the word it out to minimize this happening in the future.
|12-07-2010 11:33 PM|
I was going to ask that question...what was the judges reasoning for reducing the fine so much?

Update on the signs
The signs are not up and probably won't go up until the spring sometime when we can get to the areas where they need to be placed. RTF will continue to work with the County DOT on this and try to ensure that they are comprehesive and easy to understand.
|12-07-2010 10:30 PM|
Sorry you got fined and got the point. The fine is especially painful right before christmas. Is the problem now fixed or are there some other issues that need to be addressed. With the new signage will the CVC sections be clear, or less confusing to the masses. Can we close this thread???

I am a fairly consrvative person in regards to a lot of things. I dont believe in big government but I do belive a person has to be responsible for their own actions. I dont belive in my mommy didnt love me enough when I was a baby as an excuse. If you are an adult you are responsible for your own actions.PERIOD. If you are violating the laws that were set up to protect the masses from the few. Buck up and pay up or fight it in court. When I was a PO I lost very few cases because I was very fair and reasonable and honest. My Grandad who was a PO said to me" The only way to win every time is to be totally honest everytime whether you win the case or lose it you still win because when you walk out you told the truth and not a version of the truth. If this PO is overzealous in his interpretation of the law or is untruthful it will come back to haunt them

|indy242003||I don't live any where near the rubicon trail, but have had seen some over active law enforcement. 99% of them are good guys, and are just like you and me. Some times you will run into one of them that flips the script, and seems to be a royal pain. I always wanted to load up my rig and roll out west to wheel some of the places out there. There is a ton of crazy rules that we don't have to abide by (wheels out past fenders, green sticker, red sticker, smog, ect.) here. I don't have a big say in what goes on over on that coast and my opinion may not matter much, but I hate to see wheelers battling with law enforcement. I hope the situation with this officer works out, and we do a better job of riding to the rules and regulations, and they do a better job of educating us, and weeding through the ignorant (not knowing) to punish the criminals. I hope this thread stays alive just to inform the general wheeling public. If this guy (Ken) is by the book. Know that he is, and have your ducks in a row. It will make life better for everyone. You never know, he may have had to deal with 10 other people before you that were riding completely irreponsibly. It doesn't give him the right to judge, but it is human nature when you deal with people being out of line all day. I see both sides of it, and I just hope it comes to a good solution. Yeah, and just remember, you guys are the lucky ones. You have some of the most awesome places to ride in the world! Good luck guys, and maybe I'll see you out there one day. I'll be the guy that can't quit smiling.|

No, I don't think locking threads are going to produce the result you desire, I think just not feeding the trolls by staying out of it will get rid of it the right way.
For the record, I don't see anything here that doesn't pertain to the overall Rubicon experience. Plenty of threads have been brought about because of the acts of Officer Marcus. I have said to Kenny and others, "Take it to court and let the Judge sort it out". We have no right to censor folks who come here to bring it to our attention and or make a complaint, or to seek assistance. It is the Internet. Complaining is what is done.
I honestly feel like you mis read Martin and Craigs posts.
Why don't you ask the agencies to not read pirate because you don't want them to get the "wrong impression". Instead you assume control over the people who use this forum. Manage what is manageable. I hope you don't really mean it that way. I agree with the no swearing, PG13 stuff, but anything else is fair game if it relates to the Rubicon in this forum.
And the term correctly applied is "Jackwagon".
|11-22-2010 01:48 PM|
Scott...don't envy you.
What about just locking it...there's a lot of good stuff overall..too good to lose.

I thought then and still am sure that you were putting out information at that time that was not correct. That was quite some time ago and something I have put in my past. I learned ages ago that the internet is not a place to get too tied up emotionally with folks one does not know. I know we will meet again out on the Rubicon and it will be good. I know you are a good family man and that you have an Honest, good heart and it is in the right place. If we spent more time together I know we could be fast friends.
