Watch as troopers hassle a trucker about his blown tire … while he’s waiting in line at the repair shop


A CDLLife reader sent in video of his exasperating encounter with a couple of state police officers who seem to be going out of their way to make life hard for a trucker already experiencing tire trouble.

The video was sent in by reader William Keyser. Keyser captured the footage as he was waiting in line at a repair shop after blowing a tire.

“The officer didn’t show up until an hour after I had gotten to the shop and was already in line,” he said.

In the video, troopers inform Keyser that he has tire problems — which he definitely already knows. When the troopers learn that Keyser is waiting in line for a repair, they still go on to inform him that he’s got a vehicle violation and ask to see his license, registration, and proof of insurance.

“You’re kidding me, right?” Keyser asks, incredulous, shortly before the video ends.

“Nothing happened this time thankfully but it happens far too often to drivers with worse outcomes. This is one of the many reasons that there’s a lack of respect for the DOT among the trucking community,” Keyser said.
