    Like Cali and the 2012 and up truck (do not qualify lolol) and Colo for chains on I70 type of laws?

    I already know freight sucks coming out of there. Just looking into something.

    found the chain laws, anything else?

    When you use CAT Scale in Nevada and Arizona, they require truck and trailer license plate numbers and the state

    No strange laws that I'm aware of. I like driving in Nevada with the high speed limits and low traffic. It's also about the least likely state that you'll get pulled into a weigh station. They're almost never open in Nevada. I've had one inspection in NV over the last 5 years.

    There was a Trooper outside the reno area who like to confiscate casino winnings by some ordained loophole in the law I ran into once in the ten years I ran into Cali but later he was on some news show like dateline or 60 minutes and I think he got his ### handed to him.
    Like they say, great state to drive in. Scales are nearly always closed, roads are great, 24h everything. I used to love running through the Nevada Basin. From Wells to Vegas. Don't want to break down out there though. Be safe!
