    That's interesting. I live and operate in OR/WA. I go through the scales countless times every month, including the Ashland & Woodburn port of entry locations.

    I was pulled around for a level 2 last week for the first time in years. The inspector was really cool, a genuinely nice guy.

    I thought he was going to question my consistent use of pc. However, not a word about it :) He gave an atta boy with a clean bill of health.

    Same deal here. We go through both the Ashland and KFalls scales a lot. Never had any problem with either one of them.

    We won't mention Cordelia. I keep hoping for a mini earthquake and having Cordelia disappear into a giant sink hole.
     
    x1Heavy and InTooDeep Thank this.

    Cordelia is a training center which is why it sucks.

    A couple of years ago Cordelia cited one of our trucks for a "defaced reflector" One corner had broken off, that's all.
    The rest of the truck and trailer was fine but the defaced reflector kept us from getting a sticker that day.
    Ridiculous.

    I liked to pick on med-ford a little bit. Ultimately nothing bad happened there. The main they wanted was to be sure I had a red Oregon tag on that tractor. Not all FFE trucks had those.

    I can think of other scales around the USA where your chances of being fined for something has gone up quite a bit just for showing up. I don't mind VA police picking on me for a 70 foot vehicle on US15. That's a minor annoyance rather than a potential for a really bad result in say Dumfries. It's business. Choose the lowest cost risk path and follow it.

    You need to google attorneys in Fresno that no cdl laws and know the prosecutor. He can work you a better deal plus he knows the DA already.
