    I got popped in the West Los Angeles area for being 71’ long with a 48’ step deck and 265 wheelbase Pete a few years back, ordinance says only 65’ off the interstates. Cost me $171.00.

    The statute you posted has nothing to do with kingpin to rear axle distance. I’d suggest finding a scenic route around the scales. They love to enforce the KPRA laws out there.

    If you don’t meet the KPRA then you also get dinged for being over length. When I got popped at Truckee with my 52ft spread in addition to the KPRA violation I also got written up for being over 65ft overall even though I was on I-80.
