But I agree with you youroo those harvest crews probably look for any way possible to save or make a little extra.

Not a "little xtra" but 32% cheaper. Good for the farmers, without food, we all wither away.

Dear Telstar,
Yes the sign does say commercial trucks but if they agree to weigh you're RV and you're illegally overweight........

It falls under federal dot laws No such thing as a constitutional right of protection against unreasonable search and seizure.

Sorry but when the State Patrol is standing In the Highway with a Huge Sign that said "ALL Trucks must STOP" and we Stopped and He said Pull in for Fuel Check! We pulled In! Now what You Do in this Situation may Differ! Youroo!!

Though I agree with your thought process, I would imagine this falls in line with DUI check points. Or any other random stops the state decides to check.

I once was stopped early Sunday morning, on a country road, to verify registration and insrance was up to date. I assumed it was quicker to supply the requested information than to argue the legality of the search. As previously stated, sometimes it is easier to go with the flow.

Ever heard of Federal Asset Forfeiture Laws? By using illegal fuel, you may or may not be convicted of a crime. As evidence, your truck and trailer can be seized and not returned to you. You may not even be given a ticket.... but since your truck was illegally used... it can be taken. (and does not have to be returned to you)

I've been tested several times at Illinois points of entry especially during harvest season. Doesn't really amount to much if your legal.

It's the IRS that tests the fuel here in AR. Had a lady pull up in our yard at work, flashed her ID. Then she went to checking trucks.

And the comments about weigh station troopers checking your door sticker to your weight. Has that ever happened to anybody pulling a RV. I bet not.

Wowser!! Is that a Canadian thing or do cops do that everywhere?

"...your trailer WILL be staying with them." REALLY??... that's sounds like a load to me but not aware of how the weight police really do enforce such things.

Not a Canadian thing at all. Happens in CA more than anywhere. Give a cop reason to stop you if he suspects overweight and portable scales prove it ~~ you do not move that trailer.
