I heard a guy just get a $900 fine for being over weight. It is just crazy.
In MD the DOT focuses more on pick ups with trailers and trucks under 26000#. They don't mess with tandems and tractor trailers much because 99% of the time they're compliant. Once in a while the DOT here gets sneaky and even will work on Saturdays.
