Georgia DPS calls out truck driver for using ‘NASCAR slicks’

Published:

The Georgia Department of Public Safety (DPS) took to social media on Friday to point out a CMV tire violation recently discovered by an officer.

In a Facebook post shared on January 27, Georgia DPS wrote:

NASCAR slicks are still not regulated by the FMCSA, so please do not use them on your CMV. The not funny part is that the driver thought it was still a good tire as long as it still held air. 

Social media users expressed both concern and incredulity about the tire featured in the post. 

“Someone definitely got their money’s worth out of that tire!” said one user.

“Seriously? Glad y’all took that truck off the road,” said another.

“That is crazy!!! Not a ‘May Pop,’ more like ‘Will Pop,'” concluded another user.
