My son had very short talk with one of those black smoke pumping trucks . He was on his motorcycle when the guy covered him with his black smoke. He made him pull over at the next stop sign. Needdless to say the guy was scared to death after the little talk.I think the guy will think long and hard before he ever does that to another motorcycle rider. Why the law lets these truck get by with it is beyond me.
I think the police are catching on to that nonsense. A friend of mine was running around in his warmed over 6.0l SuperDuty and saw an old CUCV K-20 rolling coal all over everything. Maybe a hour or so later, he was pulled over by a city cop because there had been 911 calls about a truck dumping black smoke everywhere, and since he has a SuperDuty, he got stopped and questioned. In that conversation, he told the cop that he refused to do that with his SD, but had seen that CUCV rolling coal earlier and was willing to bet it was that guy he was looking for. Not sure what came of it, but my friend was pretty pissed about being profiled because of that other truck owner.
