While the inspections take about 30 minutes, Cox said drivers are usually cooperative with troopers, especially during Roadcheck. "It's rare that we encounter a driver that has a less than positive attitude about what we're doing," he said. "They understand that our primary goal is safety."What's the secondary goal? To demonstrate that The Man can pull over trucks in Wise County at will?
This pic was in the Messenger last Wednesday (in the paper's Thursday edition that was released online on Tuesday) in connection with DPS's new commercial vehicle inspection station in Decatur. Does this guy duck once the truck gets closer? Once he's down there is he trapped while the truck sits over him? If there's another entrance to the subterranean inspection area, why wouldn't he use it? And I love this:
