So I got a ticket for "Unlawful Stopping on a Highway" yesterday morning in Virginia. I was BARELY parked beyond the entrance of a rest area. Enough that half of my trailer wasn't within the rest area. The trooper had already nailed 3 or 4 other rigs for the same offense. So, while he's writing the ticket he has me in his car out of the cold (a kind gesture on his part) and I ask if this is considered a moving violation. He states in Virginia it is but it may not be by my state. It seems odd to me that a moving violation would have "stopping" in it. I was parked after all. Anyone know why this is considered a moving violation??? I can only imagine what this ticket is going to wind up costing me. Luckily I wasn't in the Safety Corridor where fines start at $200. Nonetheless, I'll pay the ticket but I still think it shouldn't be considered a moving violation, b/c that means points on my license and my company won't be too happy about that. Lesson learned.
