    It may be policy but there is no law prohibiting the use of a bolt seal

    I don't think she is saying bolt seals are illegal. She is saying that the law says you must have bolt cutters to remove them. I don't think that's true. I will research it.

    Bolt cutters, don't you mean burglary tools!?!?! You could go to jail for having those. It's the law. In fact if you have tape or wire ties in your truck you could go to jail for having kidnapping tools. It's the law.
    Don't believe me? I've done my research, not sharing it though. Look it up yourself.

    It wasn't about how you 'operate', it's you touting that it is the law and company policy when it actually isn't either. No one can find any information to support your assertion, including yourself thus far. If we are wrong we sure would like to know but instead of contributing you just wanna keep on operating.

    I can't understand why she doesn't just admit she's wrong. It's really no big deal because we all make mistakes. Perhaps it's arrogance. Maybe pride. When I'm wrong I simply admit it. I've never had a problem with humility.

    DOT regulations do require that any hazmat that's any amour required placards example poison gas now require bolt seals. As for the bolt cutters DOT, fire and rescue carry bolt cutters the driver may be incompacataded and unable to assist. Hope this helps.
