Consolenut Posted October 4, 2019 Report Share Posted October 4, 2019 This happened today about 80 miles east of Oklahoma city. A fellow RV'er in the park been here a little while got a new rig. Being curious he went to weigh his rig at the cat scales. Well he forgot to plug in his trailer lights and got on the highway. Of course he got pulled over for faulty equip as his plug was draggin the highway. Based on his headlights pointing skyward. The OHP officer got out his portable scales. He was 650 over on his rear axle and recieved a $208.90 fine for being over weight. The 0-2000 overweight rule is standard at 208+ the 78 for faulty equip. So it seems you can be fined. He said the officer don't question CDL as the RV exemption but weight and weight ratings he does. Cant be pulled over for weight specifically but can be weighed along with some other infraction. Food for thought. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
