Pass or Stop? - Weighing Stations

Most states collect taxes based on the weight ­of transported goods. Truck weigh stations are­ used for these ta­x purposes as well as to monitor the weight of a truck to ensure that it falls within the safety guidelines that each state has in place for its road system.  Whether or not you need to stop at a weigh station is going to depend on the laws of the state you are passing through.  As you map your route, check the laws of the states to make sure you comply with their rules.

Fatalities on the road occur at a rate three times greater at night than during the day, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. While only a quarter of all driving is done at night, more than half of all driving deaths occur then.

If you’re driving on ice, you won’t know it until you need to stop. It doesn’t matter if you’re in a sedan, a 4-wheel drive or a big rig: brakes are the great equalizer.  Here are the 9 tips:
