Default Has anyone received any citations of any sort yet?

Have any of you, since all this crap started received any sort of citation or ticket for being on the roadways without proof of essential or failure to wear mask in public that has resulted in a monetary fine?

not me or anyone I know....they cant say that you are able to go the store, etc and give tickets....the whole thing is silly that people say they cant go places. a lot of businesses are open, I go somewhere almost every day. Just got back from a 7 hour drive day before yesterday to go turkey hunting. I have never worn a mask, to be honest I would feel stupid wearing one in public. I do used plastic grocery bags over my hands when getting gas..

As a parent with a son that has a compromise immune system, PLEASE don't feel stupid for wearing a mask.

I know a few people who have been stopped. Myself included. I didnt have a letter from work but i showed him my Company ID badge and that was good enough. a buddy of mine was stopped and he said he was headed to a grocery store and the officer said ok just remember to keep your distance from people and that was it. no warning or citations given out just verbals

Nope. I drive 100 miles round trip for work covering 4 counties and haven't been stopped, actually I see far fewer vehicles stopped and we are driving much faster!

Also spent a few days over at Rayburn during the week and it looked like a Saturday everyday.

Nope, DFW is the wild west on the roads right now. 80MPH average speed during rush hour gets my doors blown off a few times a day in my 64 mile round trip commute.

I have the letter we drafted and a few from our clients that I visit their job sites.

Haven't been pulled over yet and I go and come when I need to. Will continue to do so. If I get pulled over I will roll down my window and fake a severe coughing fit. Maybe even spit on my hands.

Seems impossible to enforce for local traffic. If your traveling distance and are away form where your home is, I could see where it would be more complicated. Not sure its plausible that I live in Austin but went grocery shopping in Rockport. I saw a youtube video yesterday (Florida fishing channel, I think) where there was a check point headed to Key West to keep tourists out. I cant imagine that would happen here though.

Coworker has been pulled over and had to show his letter. I haven’t been yet. My work just sent out paperwork that all personnel have to wear a mask at our building no matter what. Most job sites I go during the day, we are also required to wear them.

I drive 105W daily, hot spot for Conroe PD. I have only seen 1 vehicle stopped in 4 weeks. Usually 3 or 4 a day. I think if its not something really bad or dangerous they aren't doing routine stops.

The speed limit is now 65-75 early in the morning

Myself and 2 other trucks passed a CPD at 5:30am at 74mph... never budged. The speed limit is 55

Someone please get a copy of the warning citation someone has been issued. By Federal law all stops must be issued a warning to mandate with the racial profiling. Please. Someone get a photo of it. I know LE all over the state. No agency I know of has done anything other than respond to calls when someone dials the magic 911 and makes a complaint. Then they respond and tell them why they are there

I saw a clip a week or so ago on the local news where two guys were stopped by county & got citations or warnings as one held it up...crazy thing is they were each in their own vehicle, so not sure what is was about of if someone called??

i have seen news articles of local businesses getting citations for not adhering to shutdown guidelines.. TOTAL BS to have one business that has 10 customers a day shut down, when the business next door can have a bazillion a day and operate normally.

Please cite the Federal Law requiring a warning. This is news to me. We have cameras and other ways to document stops besides a warning.

It all has to be documented on a racial profiling form of one sort or another. Every contact. Not new. I don’t know of anywhere doing verbal warnings anymore. If so not sure how the Federal mandates are done. We do have the option of more of less filling out the entire warning citation on a computer and not actually handing the person one but I don’t know of any Department or Agency doing this. Maybe I’m wrong.

Very common around here. No warning citation necessary and I had not heard of any federal mandate on issuing one. The citations here are issued on a misdemeanor citation used for Class Cs with the city or county ordinance number on them.

Nope I am an essential business. If that wanted write a ton of them just have them go the the local Home Depot. I had to pick up a order for landscaping materials for a job. Placed was packed. Shouldn't be anyone in there but essential workers such as contractors, electricians, plumbers, etc. it was packed with people picking out paint, flooring, landscaping stuff none of which looked like they were essential employees.

It is essential that I complete my home project and the required materials are found at my local HD/Lowes. So, don't think you are gonna be able to get that place to yourself. Going after work today to pick up some more material so I can use the weekend to complete some more projects. So stay away from the Lowes down the road from me if you don't want to see me in there

Grouse. HR1498 I think. It is about 60 pages of legal stuff. If it’s the one I I’m thinking of it dictates recording race of individuals contacted. I guess a Department could just not do it and when audited loose any grant funded positions or Federal $

I just remember the stops had to be documented on a form or on a camera to be in compliance with the state.

The point is that HD and Lowes are slammed with non essential customers. Your project may be essential to you but I'm guessing it's not really by the tone of the text. I have seen full bathroom an kitchen remodels taking place now, people sitting down picking out cabinets and granite as well as flooring. A leaky toilet, yes, I get it but picking paint to redo the house, not so much.

I'm reading rumors of a kayaker that got a $500 tick from Kleberg for launching on the beach. It's supposed to be closed to non-residents of Kleberg and Calhoun county but open to residents. That's not me or someone I know though, so FWIW.

We were down there last weekend and they have big signs posted that only local residents are able to use the boat ramp or fishing piers.

Where has it been communicated Lowes and HD are open only for contractors and essential businesses? They are just open. Anyone that wants to can go.

Didn't get a citation but had 4 Wilco offers show up to my house for a "noise complaint" and possible party after 11pm on Sunday night. Had heated the hot tub and was out having a drink listening to music waiting on my wife to put the kids to bed and come out to join me. The music was playing through my phone and just loud enough for me to hear over the hot tub. They really didn't say much about the music but more wanted to make sure we weren't having a party.

Oh and I've been to Lowe's a few times. It's not just contractors who can go. Same with the Leslie's pool supply next door that I go to. Both are still open to the public.

A friend sent a pic of the waiting line outside of HD in Austin. He had to wait 30+ min just to get in as they were only allowing so many people in at a time.

That's dumb. Sid miller has stated all ag as an essential business and our extension office issues a certified letter to any of us that requested one. So i have my proof against curfew for my area(which is moronic to begin with). I went ahead and kept it in the truck for coming home from the lease late at night. But have not had any issues. Seems all political to me.
