    Trooper Ayers I hope you investigate fully. Posted speed on Parker is 15 mph. Truck displayed no plates, county sticker, or inspection. Truck tire and rim left an impressive dent in the telephone pole.

    I don’t wish those individuals ill will but certainly hope the Trooper follows thru with a list of all infractions.
