    ...just because the sign says "closed". Maybe the ramp was full or they are doing a bunch of inspections. The moment they get a chance they might open up again

    If a nightclub is only allowed 500 patrons and there's a line outside, the club is not "closed". As soon as a couple people walk out, the doorman will let two people in.

    Take a moment and evaluate what is actually going on

    I only downloaded this app way back for the scales, however it never worked for me, to many false reports, I understand it relies on individuals input. Bottom line…. I tossed it out.

    It used to be decent but too many trigger-happy drivers click "Closed" when a weigh station is actually a bee hive of activity.

    I almost always go through the woods to avoid scales, even when I'm empty. I don't like delays
