Any " creeper cops " in the house ? Been a cop for 22 yrs , Mcsap cert for 9 and just got my Haz-mat cert last fall.

My partner and I did 141 Level One inspections last year and put 70 of them Out-of-Service :)

I've been doing license and weight enforcement for almost 2yrs now, and I have been having a blast.  Next month I'll be headed to Austin for part a & b of the North American inspection. After I finish part c (intrastate) in January I can start conducting inspections. That's when the real fun starts.

Hey Keystone,


What's the heaviest you've weighed? I got a  tractor and trailer at 162,000lbs. It had three axles on the trailer and two on the tractor truck. The driver forgot to put the tag axle down. He was weighing 57,000 on the front tandem. He got hit hard for the weight and for crossing a load restricted bridge (21,000 tandem axle). The truck was loaded with some type of concrete crushing machine.

Me and my partner did one a couple of weeks ago that weight 181,000, although he had a 3 axle tractor 2 axle jeep and 4 axle trailer, he only had an annual 120,000 permit.  I love my Haenni scales. 


 There are a lot of "bootleggers" running heavy loads without the proper permits and/or required number of axles.  Its no wonder our roads and highways are in the shape they are.  A lot of CVE, DOT, License and Weight officers or whatever we're called this week that don't weigh the overweight/oversized loads.  They are either to lazy or don't know the weight of the machine that the truck has.  With the internet, there are numerous sites to check weights of the machine they are carrying.

If the driver doesn't know the weight of the machine I usually look it up on the equipments website and go from there. Here lately I've been hitting rock haulers pretty heavy on the weight and out of service violations. There is a lot of construction going on up here in the Dallas area.
