Left at scalehouse alone over the weekend
by Sharlen Van Wert
Had a failure to appear for a ticket so when at a DOT Scalehouse, I was left from Friday to Monday, alone in summer heat with no food, or bathroom facilities.
Is this right?
Monday, the same officer escorted me to a flying J, after telling me he thought my company was paying my ticket.
Friday I pleaded for a ride to the post office three miles away and was refused saying we’re not a taxi service and on the other side of the Interstate so couldn’t get there myself.
I just find this to protect and serve as cruel and unusual punishment, on a 66 year old female solo driver.
Know I was wrong for not paying that ticket but think DOT was wrong in their treatment also.
If he can escort me to a safe haven on Monday, why not on Friday when stopped? Good
