Question A Fist Full of Warnings...But Is Anyone Keeping Track?

I got lucky on the way to the races over the weekend and got a fist full of warnings from DPS rather than citations. Nice, neat little pieces of receipt-style paper documenting what it was that I was warned for doing that I should not have been doing. "Thank you, officer." And then I'm on my way.

But do these warnings go into some kind of database or something? If an officer tags me 10 minutes down the road, will he know about my warning 10 minutes earlier? I've had a few warnings in my lifetime and always wondered, but never asked.


(This is moto related since it involves a truck carrying a motorcycle on the way to the race track, btw.)

It will get entered into the system. It's computer age, it's just a formality.

Thanks for lending me the jumper cable. BTW, I am nominating you for the BOD.

No problem at all on the cables.

BoD? I served for two terms, four years, from 2003-2007. I loved it, but I dunno if I could do it again these days.

Actually, even without warnings, they can enter your plate number and see how many times you've just been pulled over in the last few months.

DPS no longer gives verbal warnings. If you get stopped you get documented. This way there is a record of ALL stops by each trooper. At the end of a shift, the trooper uploads his records for the day back to the main database in Austin which then filters out to every DPS computer. Any trooper that runs your plate number can see any and all stops made by other troopers and whether they were warnings or citations.
