    Any body know what the penalty is for having a false number on your truck? I know a lot of guys just making up a number and putting it on their truck, I think they'll have there hands full if they get caught.

    You can read 1" numbers/letters @ 50' Thats what I have.

    False numbers is just stupid ... federal offense... can you say fines? license suspension? lawyer? Jail? driving illegally?

    After all it is the FEDERAL MOTOR CARRIERS.
