DOT COMPLIANCE: Driver Fuel Receipts

 

FUEL RECEIPTS DURING A DOT INSPECTION

There is much debate these days around the truck stop coffee counter about the legality of providing a DOT inspector with fuel receipts during an inspection

 

LETS CLEAR THAT UP RIGHT NOW

 

THERE IS NONE!

 

The ONLY way that an inspector can get access to the fuel receipt is through the carrier, or with a warrant signed by a judge. Anything else is a violation of your 1st Amendment, and 4th Amendment rights as described in the US Constitution.

 YOU ARE ONLY REQUIRED TO SHOW THE FOLLOWING DOCUMENTS AT A ROAD SIDE INSPECTION

Driver License

Medical Card

Long Form Physical

Bill Of Lading

Operating Authority

Insurance Certificate

IFTA Registration 

Trailer Registration

Cargo Insurance

Tractor Registration

Trailer Registration

Record of Annual Inspections

Other Vehicle Related Documents

 

There is NO requirements that a driver MUST show any DOT inspector a fuel receipt regardless of what that inspector may tell you. Make him/her prove it to you in writing, or tell him to get a signed warrant!

 

STAND UP FOR YOUR CONSITUTIONAL RIGHTS!

 

 

OH--and if you are the kind that willingly hands it over just because your afraid of retaliation I’ve got one word for you

 

FREAKINGCOWARD!

 

Just because you have a CDL doesn’t mean that you gave up your constitutional rights!
