Is a Warning a Violation?

The fast answer is YES. If your commercial vehicle is inspected by the Department of Transportation and the officer writes you a warning, he maybe saving you some money, but any violations (or warnings) listed on the inspection report will appear on your driving record under the new CSA2010. In this case the warning is just an un-cited violation, yet still a violation.

Do yourself a favor, perform a thorough pre-trip and post-trip inspection, and have any deficiencies repaired before you hit the road. Keep some tools, fuses and spare bulbs in your vehicle at all times so you do not give enforcement agencies an obvious reason to pull you over. Expect to be inspected.
