Wayne Gravel/Driver Assessed Nearly $5 Thousand Fine

Truck Driver/Employer Fined $4,600.00
A Bolivar, NY truck driver and his employer, Wayne Gravel Products of Shinglehouse, PA, are facing fines totaling $4,600.00 after a stop by State Police for a commercial motor vehicle inspection on Route 6 in Pike Township Thursday at 7:00 pm.


Carl A. Hackett, 44, of Bolivar, NY, was operating a 1998 Freightliner Truck Tractor hauling an attached 1995 Eager Beaver flat bed trailer, when he was stopped for a commercial motor vehicle inspection.

The vehicle owned by Wayne Gravel Products, Inc. of Shinglehouse, PA, was hauling a John Deere excavator, which was an oversized load and was marked as such.

When police inspected the vehicle, it was discovered that there was no oversize permit obtained from PennDOT, along with numerous other violations.

The vehicle was placed out of service and fines totaling about $4,600.00 were filed against the driver and his employer.

Good. Now pull them over for an uncovered load and save a lot of car damage to others! AND make them clean the mud off the road where they cross..

Same with the farmers with the uncoverd loads, blowing all over and into your car. Might even be worse

What about all you whiners that shovel or plow your snow out into the road causing a hazard all winter?

The "mud", as you like to call it, that PENNDOT spreads on the road all winter long saves your life. You complain because nothing is being done with the roads then when they are taking care of the roads you complain. I guess some poeple are not happy unless they are b*tching about something.

whats he suposed to do, tarp the excavator? What will that do?

And if you worried about gravel comming off the top of the trailer and hitting your vehicle, maybe you should increase you following distance a little, 15' might be a little too close.

As for Randy's deal on 6, your not suposed to drive d8's across bare pavement or roll boulders onto a highway... but he is still operating there...

Allot of people just like to b*tch just to make them self feel better and then they wonder why some people walk around with a chip on there shoulders. Penndot does do a good job all year with what money our no good for nothing state gives them and no i dont work for penndot. All i have to say about that is if you think you can do it better then lets see ya try

I will definitely agree that Randy's mess down there on Rt 6 is a little ridiculous. Something needs to be done there.

8:25 I also had mine broke, but it was a Duffy truck hauling the shale from their pit-quarry.

How about this?....All of you people who can't handle the mud on the roads (OH No), the farmers hay blowing around your vehicle, etc--MOVE TO THE CITY where you don't have to deal with it.

I agree, these truck owners pay a heck of a lot more to use these roads than you 4 wheelers do!

FYI, unless it is a part of a truck that comes off and breakes your windshield or damages your vehicle, it is your baby, part of the known hazarad of driving on the roads in the commonwealth!

PenDot workers worked for months without pay to save your lives. Would you work for no pay??? You probably wouldn't work for their pay. I do not work for PenDot and I want to thank them for making the roads safe so I can go to work. Most of the time their trucks and plows don,t work and fast Eddy won,t let them fix them only the ones in Philly get the best and get them fixed. I was happy to see Philly and down state got snow this year so they know how we feel.

Don't go getting too all high and mighty. Yes, I think PennDOT does what they can, where they can, when they can, as it is not the employees choice of what to do and when to do it, but don't think for a minute that these men and women worked for FREE... Yes, they most certainly went without pay, for a period of time waiting for the budget to pass, but when it was passed they were paid for their time. This is not working for free, it is more of a delay in pay. It is part of what they signed up for...

Wayne Gravel has been in business long enough to know what they were doing was wrong.

It would have only taken a few minutes to call Clearfield and get the paper work that would have made this move of equipment legal!

Would have been a lot cheaper as well!

This needs to be a wake up call to all truck drivers, make sure the load you are hauling is legal or you will be personally fined as well. And guess what? It will go on your driving record and your personal auto insurance rates can and will go up too.
