I hear you about the ambiguity. I expect you are more a passenger vehicle than a truck when not towing.

I was suggesting that we as operators use common sense when traveling. The police will enforce whatever rules they want to using their "trigger" measure. I have known police who on some days will give you 10 mph, other days less depending "upon?". I believe if we are traveling reasonably most officers will give us the "benefit of the doubt".

Length is another example where we seem to get a break. I have observed very lengthy units driving to the Imperial Dunes for the Thanksgiving weekend going by Highway Patrol who do not react. Some of them look like they are also going faster than the posted 55 and do not get a reaction. What triggers the officer to stop for speeding or to check for over length? When a unit is stopped for say speeding will the officer also write them up for length? Some say they have been written for length when stopped for another infraction.
