Looks like it was done as a publicity stunt. Bet it was a mess with all the media trucks and helicopters, once they showup traffic will crawl.

the federal D.O.T. does spot checks thru out the united states like that.It was simply a plot to raise money by raping the trucking industry.When the federal law below goes into effect, you are going to see the next wave of lay offs country wide happen.Its a way to get the small business man out of the trucking business and let the UNION companies take over and GO UP ON RATES.2011 is going t bring about an entire new wave of layoffs.This is not going to just affect the trucking industry, but EVERY business associated with the trucking industry.This includes tire stores, ma and pa fuel stops,restaurants,and basically EVERY ASPECT of life.YOu may not realize the effect yet, but every business in america is tied to the trucking industry in some way.

It's all that "hope and change" that the moonbats voted for in place. More Govt. control. Obama is very PRO Union, and he wants to kill the private industry.

The trucking union is not as strong as you think. The major trucking company's have bought non-union outfits and have moved a lot of their frieght that way witch is chocking out the unions.

Are there pictures? I'm no good without pictures. LOL

Went by the weigh station today and there's no sign that they were even there. There has been some chatter about hightened fears over a story a German suspected terrorist provided, something about an attach in Europe or the US. Might have been a show of force by US security. Wonder what they found?

But this was way beyond Fed DOT, this was homeland security and other high level departments. DOT doesn't use x-ray or other equipment to detect for radioactive materials. This was a dog-and-pony show with the media there in full force, even made Drudge.

This was no "normal" DOT check. TSA, DHS, Ga DOT, National Guard, GSP and the DCSD were all there. Huge xray machines and wands were used to check for explosives. We're talking about a weigh station that isn't even open 1/2 the time. I remember when they built that weigh station, and I never remember the feds out there doing this. Something smells foul with the whole thing. We're coming up on mid term elections, and me thinks someone wants us to think they are looking out for our safety. Too late Barry, your bridges have already been burned.

Oh boy!! I guess traffic will be a flipping nightmare again on Thornton Rd. What they were doing the other day is taking certain rigs and pulling them around to the back. They then made them exit back onto Blairs Bridge Rd. to come back down to Thornton rd., and then get back onto I-20. Add the rubber neckers on top of that, and it was crazy both on Thornton Rd and on I-20. They must have info that bombs are going to be transported via 18 wheelers. I just do not see this as some training exercise like they told the media.

I wonder if Atlanta was one of the 7 US cities Al Qaida wants to nuke in their "American Hiroshima Plan". Too bad there's a weigh station in our county, if they do find a nuke it will likely be detonated.

Well Atlanta is the melting pot of the south. Many large companies headquartered here. It's quite possibly a city the size of Atlanta would be a terrorist target.
