Seems pretty cut and dry that it's illegal.

No its not....There is NO LAW for riding in the cargo area of a truck. How can it be illegal if there is no law. Many states do have laws on it but Ky. is one of them that doesn't.

I called my sheriffs office last year about this same subject, they told me that it would be up to the LEO's discretion "if" I got pulled over,
then went on to say, act like you have some sense and not drive erratically, that you have precious cargo,
if you do this then you should be fine, but then there's always that chance.....

I have no problems with somebody riding in the bed of a truck. Heck, I've done it myself, but what Ateup posted is the law. You can go to court and argue officer's discretion or there's no specific law against truckbed riding or whatever you want and who knows? It might just work, but at least you now know what statute you'll be accused of violating when the police officer pulls you over.

This reminds me of what I did back in the day. Picture 8 guys in a little Nissan pick up...2 inside and 6 in the back. Also in the bed was a tarp and it was full up to the rails with water. It was like a mobile hot tub on a 90+ degree day. That truck sagged so bad. All the water sloshing around made it pretty hard to handle curvy road conditions. Got pulled over just 1 time wanting to see if we had any beer. We were all 18-20 yrs old. Ahhhhh..memories

just like I've been given warnings for things before just because the officer was a nice guy,
he didn't have to, he could have just wrote the ticket and been done with it.
