    If you got the ticket you will have to pay. I would make sure you pay and verify with the state at a later date they did receive the monies and the ticket has been paid. Get some sort of verification from the state.

    You did not weigh after you picked up?

    Arnold shouldnt put it on your DAC. DAC is used for things like accidents or speeding tickets (unsafe driving), and truck/trailer maintenance. Overweight tickets shouldnt get put on there, but even if they do I don't see it hindering any future employment. I mean, a company that sees an overweight ticket would probably ask you what the deal was, and you'd reply "I didn't weigh my load one time, and I learned my lesson...yadda yadda..." No biggie from what I can see..

    If there was an inspection and a ticket for overweight it will appear as a failed inspection on you PSA so check with a reporting company hire right will give you a free DAC report. It is minimal points but it does show up not looked upon as as serious as an accident or such.
