In the New England area I have never been stopped or have I seen anyone being stopped . When the weight stations are open we go right by with no problem .

Has anyone been stopped and weighed

This is for my information so using the scale when open might be a bad idea, someone here posted that every/all 3/4 ton trucks with trailers ARE overloaded......
Front axle + Rear axle + Trailer = GVW

Good to know, thanks! Thanks to others who responded, too.

Several years ago, 70s, 80s, in SE PA, US Rt. 1 they were weighing, and fining pick-up slide-in campers 1/2 and 3/4s tons for serious overload situations. Rear bumpers dragging the ground.

Their more interested in the big rigs, after all you don't even need a CDL to drive a motorhome so why mess with one on weight?

So you just pull into the 'Closed' weigh station and weigh? The scale stays on?

Has Anyone Been Stopped And Weighed

Yes, I got signaled into a scale coming south on I35 from Wichita to Tulsa early in May, it was after dark on a Sunday night and I stopped on the scale and was signaled to go ahead after a short period of time. I was pulling a Rockwood 2883 Ultra Lite with a Ford F350 Diesel so I was okay weight wise, but was surprised with the signal to pull in.

How did you get signaled in?
Any dot scale I've seen you have to physically pull off onto the on ramp to the scale to get signaled to pass through or pull over scale.

There is nothing on the physical hiway to tell you to come in.

Besides that you state it was dark?

Of all the replies, you're the only one so far, and you were signaled to pull enter the weigh station in the dark, Huh!
