excessive oil and or grease by Anonymous

If you are fortunate enough to get inspected in California, the officer has the authority to issue you a citation for excessive Oil and or grease. A clean truck gets inspected less than a dirty one

Please explain by Vicki

Hello,

Please explain what “excessive oil and or grease” means.

For example:
– Does it mean a leak?
– Does it mean a glob of fifth wheel platform grease hanging off the end of the platform?
– Does it mean excess oil from a lubrication?
– Or other?

Please be more specific. Thanks.

We wish you safe travels and lots of money saving opportunities on the road.

Best regards,
Vicki Simons
