GREENSBORO, N.C. — A North Carolina trucking company owner has found out that you don’t necessarily have to have bad CSA scores (a lot of violations) to get in trouble with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.

Someone telling the feds about your operation will do just as well, thank you.

Thursday, the Office of the Inspector General of the Department of Transportation announced that the U.S. District Court here last week had sentenced Larry Morris W. Trucking of Snow Camp, N.C., to 60 months of probation for making false statements relating to the falsification of drivers’ Hours of Service records.

The carrier also must pay a $20,000 civil penalty for violation of records-of-duty regulations.
