Thats what DOT wants. It basically allows states to keep track of the commercial traffic on their roads. Like I said, some states are more lenient than others. MI isn't bad, but I got one just to be better safe than sorry. I have a 1/2 ton and my trailer has 3K axle, doesn't put me over 10. However the minute I hook up to my 7K single axle tilt it does, or renting any equip. Basically, anyone with a 1/2 ton should get one if they plan on towing anything heavy.
