There's really not that much more to comply with compared to what your running. You're probably gonna get pulled into those type of checkpoints anyways.

Why? Because The weight limits are stupid. I can't use a 3/4 ton truck with a gross over 6500lbs when all I'm doing is cutting grass. Same with the trailer. I'm limited to a 3500lb gross just to keep from having to log all my working hours, have flairs, a reflective triangle, fire extinguisher, medical card. It's a bunch of crap to deal with just to cut grass. If the DOT would bump the weight to 17K it would make it better for most guys that just cut grass and other maintenance jobs.
