they are called CVE Commercial Vehicle Enforcement troopers
I wish it was in the budget for about 100 more of those guys. Thoe rock hauler drivers on 287 and 380 have got to be the worst on the planet. They all have chips on their shoulders, think they can do whatever they want because they're bigger than you on top of being general menaces to the commuting public. I guess that's what you get when you mix low intelligence, low pay and long hours. And you wonder why they're the lowest paid of all truck drivers. Yeah, I've got a big problem with these guys. You wanna make something of it?
If they didn't pay these jerks by the load maybe they would slow down.
Barry, here it goes again. I bet U have over 30 comments in 24 hours, none with a solution.
Wrong 5:55..........................Here's a solution. Divide the hours for road usage in a way that the trucks aren't out there with people in passenger vehicles. Yes it would require some adjustments on everyone's part, but it would minimize the hazard. Yep, everyone will bitch about being inconvenienced, because in our "me-first" society few are willing to sacrifice anything for the public good.
Due to the amount of trucks in Wise County, they need their own roads.
Barry, why are you trying to "warn" these idiots? They are killers on 18 wheels who need to be caught for their numerous safety violations, speed, etc. Sorry to generalize because I know there are some decent rock haulers, but the idiots outweigh them = probably 50 to 1.
house of r&r and anon that is the worst idea ever!!!! WE ALL need to drive safer. Thats it! There is the solution!
There's just too many of them on the road; they drive as if the laws don't apply to them. We desperately need to do something about the number of state troopers on our highways.
We have 18 troopers in Wise County now!
This here's the Pig Pen coming at ya and me and Rubber Duck just wanna let ya know that none of you have any idea how hard it is driving these big smelly greasy rigs to all kinds of destinations just so we can get our rocks off and then do it all again and again hour after hour until we are just one big ball of dripping sweatinesss.
Does this mean that Rhome is not the only one stopping these trucks today? Everytime I come through Rhome he has a rock hauler stopped.It's great to see DPS out there too. Way to go guys!!!
I drive to Decatur and back to work every day of the week... occaisonally more than one round trip per day.My observations is that it is about a 70-30 split on good to bad trucks/truck drivers.Number one offense is material being dropped from truck... aggregate, sand, gravel, etc. Most are good about tarping, but almost all are guilty to some extent about strewing a healthy trail behind em. Worst offenders by far are the drivers hauling sand down 1655 from the gravel pit... then turn onto 380 for the short drive across big Sandy to turn into trinity materials plant. Constantly dropping gravel on behind them, (not to mention the destruction of 1655). Just look at the shoulders of the new 380 at all the gravel building up. I pray for the day when that plant packs up and moves somewhere else. Other bad ones are all of the construction equipment guys moving loaders, backhoes, dozers, etc. Plenty of crap falling off the lowboy trailer and I promise you an "I don't give a $*** about it" attiude. Know about those guys personnaly.2nd biggest offense... Pulling out into traffic with utter disdain for anyone else. Just go to said gravel plant or the clusterF*** that is the 287-380 interchange and watch for 5 minutes.3rd biggest offense... DOT's management of US380 project... :)
so now wise co hates truckers and christians.4:41 its easy to make a point with a keyboard, but youd never have the balls to say that face to face.
5:55 p.m. again, sorry Barry we stayed under 30, we should have made a bet.
