One of my drivers pulled into the Merrit, BC brake check. He did his inspection and, as he was well out of the way, climbed in the bunk. A CVSE showed up at 1 a.m. and woke him, banging on his door with a flashlight. He demanded to see my driver's log book and then wrote him up an inspection notice, giving him seven days to remove the 'train horns' he had mounted under the truck.
I can find no regulations anywhere saying that a trucker cannot take a nap in the brake checks if he is not blocking access or interfering with other trucks. I can also find no regulation saying you can't have train horns. The regulations for horn requirements do not mention those. I think the CSVE are a wee bit overzealous and have no respect for the drivers out there. This guy was obviously a power mad jerk. Just my opinion.
