    I've stopped when I was driving a rental van going across state lines ... was waived through.

    My grandfather was a trucker, he hated "those fucking guys"

    I go across scales several times a week, did you know trucks can only have so much weight on certain axles.
    My truck is allowed 12,500 pounds on steering axle
    34,000 pounds on the drive axles
    My trailer has two single axles that are allowed 20,000 pounds each.
    Best to check your weights if going across a scale otherwise IDGAD

    Sometimes, I've blown past open scales on accident,never been chased down I also have been overloaded several thousand pounds on an axle once,plus inspections finding broken leafsprings/air leaks brakes out of adjustment (By law I cannot touch/adjust them need to be certified) they do a good job keeping junk off the road that has potential to kill.

    I do right before and then immediately after I poop. The weigh station guys get a kick out of it.
