Alabama Motor Vehicle Law

Not exactly sure where this post belongs. But, I was told yesterday by the DMV office while getting renewal on tags that if you own a 2500 series GM, Dodge etc or bigger as well as the F-250 Ford or bigger that you need to carry a weight proof document with you IN your vehicle. It seems a new law allows Troopers to stop and weigh these size vehicles. BUT, if you have this paper, which she gave me, show it to the Trooper and be on your way.

The agent provided that document free to me. Does anyone have any additional information on this? It was all new to me but she seemed very knowledgeable about it.

Exclamation

Kimber, this is a Private Vehicle for personal use only, It has no DOT numbers but the new law is an attempt to catch overweight vehicles??? I guess.

Looking online there is a huge jump from a 10k or less ($35) to over 10k ($105 and upwards) is it a proof your not cheating the system?

I believe that is correct aout the weight variations and fee for tags. My F 250 came in just below the 10K weight. The form also adds the requirement to include weights for any towed trailer if..towing to an event where prize money may be awarded such as horse show, trade show, fishing tournament, It is definitely a revenue related issue.

Yes because that would make you commercial makes sense. I'll look up the form, curiosity has me.
