    Granted these people clearly violated Federal Regulations. Its like speeding you get away with it until you get caught. Why didn't local law enforcement and State Patrol report them in the two year period prior to this incident. Their law books spell out all of these rules and regulations. They should have noticed this vehicle did not have DOT numbers displayed on it and checked it out. We have the same problem in Nebraska. Local law enforcement and State Patrol don't want to enforce the transportation laws, because they might have to do some work. The least they could do is report suspisous activity to DOT, but they won't even do that. In my area officials, plus myself have ask law enforcement to open thier eyes, but no, they won't.
