    Then Cali cannot have it both ways. I rather violate the bridge than the weight.

    His ticket was for having the axels to close to the Kingpin. I have been through both MI and SC which are pretty strict and neither have pulled me over for all the way forward.

    It’s a pet peeve of mine when people call it a bridge law. So I usually say something even though I know most people don’t care and will keep calling KPRA rules a bridge rule.
     
    Bean Jr. and ZVar Thank this.

    Last time I went to California my axles were set past 40 feet. What can you do when hauling 43000 lbs of pork? I just crossed the scale on 15 in the wee hours and tried my luck. I got lucky

    What is KPRA? And can anyone provide a source that MI is now changed?
