    Aight guys need some help I’m heading to VA tomorrow to drop at the Navy base and then haul ### home for the week.
    My delima is my gross is 122k 14,2 tall but my permit is for 115k 14, tall anything over this is considered a super load and will take days to get.
    My question is will they simply write me a ticket for the 7k over or ground me, not recognize the permit and hit me with 42k over and make me get a super load permit.
    I’m heading 95N to 295 to 64
    Looks like it’s just the one scale on 95 and some BS unmanned scale on 295.
    Any advice?????

    They will cancel your permit in Virginia and fine you for every pound over 80k.
    That scale you’re seeing on 295 is actually on 64 and chances are it will be open.

    I’ve seen many stories of guys fined in the 10,000 plus range due to being over permitted weight which made the permit invalid..

    Is that an unmanned scale on 64 in the center median?

    When I was a company driver one of our guys got off route and that’s what they done. Literally 10k ticket.
    But I wasn’t sure about weight….or maybe I was just hoping it was different.

    Va is .35 per pound at that weight, so $14,700 plus associated other fines..

    I'm all for breaking the law and skirting some rules but no way no how I'd risk that

    No, there is a scale east and west bound. It’s typically open

    Yep looks like this load isn’t getting delivered tomorrow. That’s waaay to much to gamble on there!

    VA will not revoke your permit if you have the axles for it. Unless you are out of route or your dimensions are off. Which your’s are. If your dimensions were right they will give you credit for the 115,000. Since you are 14-2 and permit is 14, they will bust you down to 80k.
