Can you say BUSTED?~?~
Well today i was cruising home from work, and what'ya know, DOT is pulling diesels (they had about 30 trucks lined up, 25 or so being cement trucks from a local company). Well sure enough i get flagged in. They dipped me and i was clean and let go, but thats exactly what i didnt do. Being the nosy rosie i am i walked up to one of the idle officers and asked how many they got. His reply baffled me, "Well Menuez is up to $35,000 in fines and climbing, heh its only 4:00 and were here till 10 or so tonight". Well word on the street is, Every single Menuez truck (the local cement/stone company) was running straight off-road diesel. A BIG no-no around here, and they're now paying over $100,000 in fines for it. Almost makes me happy to see em' stick it to the man.
You dont know how tempting it is when sitting at the pump and watching it turn over $90 to throw some of the 250 gallons of offroad diesel in my bed tank (which we use in the farm equipment only) in with the mix.
Just thought id share with y'all and seems anymore you WONT get away with it.
