    Haha no kidding! That's why I started this thread. I was ignorant of the subject until I researched online a bit, but the real information came when I called the state police and the revenue motor people. Thankfully Indiana, thinks 26,000 and under is the right amount. But it took forever to find that out on the phone

    down over one two four and five, send it to the printer, throw it at the truck, done.

    Mr. Martin your correct on everything about Maryland except the 500 overweight scales.. portable scales in maryland have a 1k overweight leeway (spelling)... well that was the rule in 2008 when I left md..... might have changed since then.....

    The 500 pound rule is for North Carolina.

    I don't know if this has been mentioned but...
    It varies from one state to the next.

    Please, don't let me interrupt, y'all can argue on.

    They do for interstate. There is not a state that does not enforce interstate commerce via fed dot. It's just that some states enforce some or all for intrastate. If I go to IN the original posters state I fall under interstate and the state police will enforce fed dot rules even if the do not for there own residents.

    Who and what are you responding to?

    Most cops don't know the difference between interstate, intrastate and intercourse. :laugh:
