Checking your vehicles are not overweight
By Chris Daly
Most districts have some type of scrap or junk yard that has a certified vehicle scale.
Also, many local and state police departments have portable scales that they would be more than willing to bring to your station.
Just remember, not only must you weigh your vehicles, but make sure that you document the results. If it's not documented, it never happened!
