    Has anyone else had their Drivewyze go nuts this week? At every scale from FL to the Dale City south of DC I have gotten the 'pull in unless closed' message, except the Cabbage Cops in FL, which we reefer haulers have to pull in for anyway. And I am light, so it's not that. Is that 15 state east coast blitz still going on?

    I had a stretch like that when I had Drivewyse. Normally I rarely got flagged to pull in. Then for about two days straight it wanted me to stop at every station. Thankfully it went back to normal after that. No idea why that happened.

    Some sort of blitz going on in Northern California also. Every jump scale and scale that’s usually not open, was open today with 2-3 commercial cops hanging out.

    For the last week to 10 days I've gotten the pull in unless closed almost every time. Most were closed, so it worked out. Only got bypass 2 or 3 times and they were closed anyway

    Sounds to me like they're really getting their money's worth out of this gawd awful system. I guess it's the Prepass trucks that I see bypassing the scales and not us lowly Drivewyze customers.

    What's the point of a loves offering 24/7 roadside if their shop isn't actually 24/7?

    Enroute to my final on this 2700 mile load when one of my drives decided to explode. Sounded like a huge explosion went off, and nearly gave me a heart attack. Pulled over to assess the damage and found a inner tire wobbly and flat. There was a loves just 5 miles further so decided to head in only to find the shop closed but their 24/7 sign still on. It was 240am when this happened and roadside gave me an eta for 530am for the next available tech.

    Managed to get a parking spot right infront of the shop. Another driver pulled out while I was on the phone.

    This throws my load off as well as mess with my next one.

    Really hoping it's the tire and not the rim. Tire has good thread still and shows no damage on it at all. The explosion sound I heard is the same one given off when a rim pulls away from the tire.
