    There are a lot of "modified" trucks running in and out of California. That doesn't mean you won't get caught but the odds are pretty good you'll get away with it.
    Just don't roll any coal on the scales, okay?

    Whoops! It was a little later than dusk. I always wash the truck before crossing the stateline.

    I use to do that, too. I actually got a level one at the donner scale a couple weeks ago. Spread on the trailer made the kingpin setting 45', and turned out I had developed a leaking brake chamber when I applied the service brake. They only gave me warnings, no citations. I was able to close the spread to make it tandem and wasn't over weight. Contrary to what everybody says, not ALL the Cali scales and officers are hard ##* about that stuff. I was super surprised I wasn't put out of service and didn't have to pay any citation.
     
    Rugerfan and Diesel Dave Thank this.

    I was headed home and when I crossed the Grapevine scale they told me ro stop. So I parked. I walked in with my paperwork and saw that I forgot to slide it after they loaded me. I walked in and they forgot why they stopped me but told me next time, that means on the scale! I had about 9 months experience then.
     
    Metalicious Thanks this.

    I ran a glider out there for years never once got checked.
    I'd say go for it just be smart how and where you run. Don't bring unwanted attention to yourself.
     
    Rugerfan and Bean Jr. Thank this.

    Yeah, Ca. use to have an agency that enforced emissions requirements on Vehicles, (and I assume they still do) and they could enforce "the rules" anywhere in the state. So they may set up at a state scale, throw up a tent at a rest stop, prowl a truck stop, or just pull you over on the I-40 east of Barstow. However, we be a BIG state, right ? And we gots lots of trucks running up and down the highways, and I suspect not all that many enforcers out there to catch the bad guys. Just remembered, called CARB board.

    Even the anti-idling law isn't much enforced in this state.
     
    Blue jeans, Bean Jr. and Diesel Dave Thank this.
