He believes one of those myths that gets guy in deep trouble when hauling.
The DOT guys may go home at 5PM, BUT, there are still law enforcement officers who can write CDL and other violations.
another myth is "use back roads". Who believes that cops have not figured this one many years ago?

Cops may have figured it out, but do you really think their going to cruise the back roads looking for a truck that may be there rather than stick to the main roads where they WILL find trucks?

It is rediculous to think they will ever catch everyone.
We are stating what we know to true, and what is different now than just 5-10 years ago when it comes to hauling.
YES, they will and do run backroads for the very reason that you stated. The guys on the Interstates, for the most part, are going to be legal.
Where do truckers go when they are not legal? I will give three guess and first two don't count.
Next, it does not have to be a DOT Transport Police to stop, scale, and write a ticket. If they suspect that you are overweight, they can have someone dispatch a mobile scale.

I can elaborate on this a little. First let me say I know all states are not the same,but I happen to know a DOT man that told me out of his own mouth that the reason he took a DOT job instead of getting into some other type of law enforcement,because it was a 9:00 to 5:00 job and off weekends. He said he never got called out unless there was a wreck with a loss of life involving a commercial vehicle.
