    For some strange reason, I've been lucky as heck hitting the scales for the last 10 months. I had a level 1 in Nevada last November, and I've only been pulled into a scale a couple times since then, and no level 1 or 3 inspections. Now that I've said it publicly, I'll probably get inspected tomorrow. :(

    Around the Police Officer Station. They was takin' plaster tire tracks,
    Footprints, dog-smellin' prints and they took twenty-seven 8 x 10 colored
    Glossy photographs with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of
    Each one explainin' what each one was, to be used as evidence against us.

    Pulling tankers we dont worry about it too much. The tandems are fixed in place on a tanker, and I'm not gonna say I've never exceeded 102k max gross, which is what's on my permit. I once scaled 108k but that particular load was a short haul from.yard to plant. Hauling milk is hauling milk just stay away from the DOT if possible, 3 years on this job i.have never been stuck at a DOT. The farms makes milk and I need to haul it. It's not like we tell farmers.... there is room in the tanker but I cant take it, and your tank isnt getting washed so your s.o.l.

    If the DOT ever camped out at a milk plant entrance they would write a pile of overweight tickets.... but they don't do that.

    I’m currently driving for Prime Inc hauling reefer just for some of you Guys get your confusion cleared. When trucking in and out of CA, you can only go as far back to the 6th hole for Prime reefer trailers,(has a sticker that state this info on left side of every reefer trailer), at least this is what I’ve been told. But then again, you all are right to just have a tape measure and measure it to be sure.
