We don't make a habit of stopping and citing for equipment violations unless attitude becomes an issue on a speed stop or DWI.

On the other hand it is hard to hold back my guys after they have worked a couple of fatal accidents where the innocent victims died because the violator "couldn't see them" during a lane change. Not a frequent event but it does happen.

We do look for unsafe driving combined with tow vehicle trailer combinations (swerving, swaying across lanes, too much speed, stuff like that) which happens a lot. Often alcohol is part of that problem.
The biggest problem I see now is the Texting Fools.

Sitting up high in a truck it's amazing what you can see. It bothers me when I see people reading books opened across their steering wheels. And it's more often then we would want to believe.

Drive safely. There's no other way.
