    The only way they used to show up on your MVR was if the cop decided to be an *** and write the ticket as "misuse of a vehicle". Luckily the cop around here that used to do that no longer has his job.

    Alabama will put it on your record. Their tickets are very high also. They start at nearly $300

    As someone that checks our company CSA record on a monthly basis, I can assure you that overweights do not go on the driver's CSA record.

    Prior to CSA starting, it was planned that overweights would go on a drivers record but when it was implemented I found that it wasn't. I contacted a guy that works for CSA and asked why, and the answer was the one I was hoping for.

    More often than not, overweights are not the drivers fault. Often trailers are loaded without a motor carrier representative present and they have to take the word of the shipper that the weight on the bill of lading is accurate. Even if it is accurate, if there's no driver present when it's loaded you can't be assured that it's loaded evenly from front to back.

    If it is overweight, the very second you drive away from the shippers facility, it's illegal. Will there be a public scale between you and the first state scale? Maybe, maybe not, but not all overweight tickets are issued at state scales.

    I can't speak for every state, but for the ones around my neck of the woods, overweights on your MVR don't mean much to anyone other than the motor carrier you worked for when you got the ticket. Their insurance company is the one that gets concerned when it's time for renewal. The rates go up.

    You show an MVR to a prospective employer with a lot of overweights on it, they're not going to pay much attention to it. Besides the scenario in my previous post, everyone knows that dispatchers often pressure drivers to run overweight. Sometimes they're even threatened with termination.

    If a driver wants to hire on where I work and there's nothing on their MVR except 10 overweight tickets, I'd consider that driver to have a good record.
