Default Post up your violation citations!

Curious to see how many of us (if any) end up getting phony bologna citations/tickets for going out and taking care of things, or going fishing or something? Share your citation stories!!

Curious also. I have my letter for work but I drive about a little car about 300 miles a day and was curious if I would get stopped while out.

guess this means if traveling you need to detour around secret areas of shelter in place or get a ticket.....guess I-35 E and W are closed through both Dallas and Tarrant counties......

SA went into effect at 11:59 tonight (I still count it as Tuesday night after midnight) and I hit fish camp on the coast by 7pm so I skipped it. I'll be away from SA for a week or two, curious to see how weird it gets maybe I'll just stay here longer. Wife will be coming down soon but I told her wear her scrubs and keep the badges handy just in case. I seriously doubt anybody is actually getting pulled over to check, probably focused more on businesses that should be closed as there's more money to be made in that. In a side note, sister said the neighbors are having a party, aboot 20 peeps over there grilling in their frint yard tonight.

Just drove around in Dallas Co. Every mechanic shop, tire shop, gas station, mowing crew, construction crew, whoever are all out and about. This has changed nothing, as far as the vast majority of people goes. All fluff for the governing bodies to say they did something.

I am working from home but I drove to my office in Ft Worth about 7:00 this morning to pick up a few things. The building was deserted and the only car in the parking lot was a police officer. I wondered if he would say something but he just kinda nodded at me when I walked by

I spend quite a bit of time on the road as well. Very few radar detector hits, compared to what's typical, and when I see them they're sitting off the highway on the service road. I assume just looking for people acting like total dummies. I honestly can't say I blame any of them.

Not to sound like a keyboard warrior, but I am not going to be pleased if they decide to stop and question me when I get off this rig. lol "Where are you headed, sir?" "To the land of nunya danged bidness".
Seriously, there is no law saying I am not allowed to travel. I don't think there are going to be many, if ANY citations written over this.

With the level of the orders right now I highly doubt citations will be written. But what I foresee is curfews being put in place and more and more businesses shut down which will result in them enforcing the Stay Home Work Safe Orders that people are just blatantly blowing off. Just because you can't go to work doesn't mean this was set up as a vacation. Be vigilant about what you do. They are asking people to stay as isolated as possible for a reason.

Had several guys tell me the police were at Morning stops 7/11 and Quick stop etc.... asking why they where out where were they going and so forth. But no tickets. They heard some people being told go home and if they where seen again Ticket would be issued.

I know several F-250 owners that are carrying 3-4 square bales of Coastal Hay in their trucks now.

That may or may not own cattle.

I had to run to TSC a bit ago to get some supplies and the roads were busier than I have seen in a week.
So far we have done this voluntarily with good intentions towards others but I think if they push it too long the peeps will just say enough of this and get things rolling again.

What's the point in those hours? 98% of society is at home those hours anyways. From 12p-6p would make a ton more sense. Seems like solely a control issue or a feel-good campaign.

Son lives in Southlake and car tags registered in our town of Collinsville. He gets stopped randomly and all they ask is what is he doing there......guessing they have those tag scanners on tbe cop cars. Each time he explains and they send him on his way........knowing our town can't blame them for asking....
