I bet its millions and millions and with the fines being 600 or more why don't we make public the tax on people who can't vote here and confess our anti conservative low taxes behavior as long as they can't vote us out .

Trucking companies do not pay for ANY weighstation violations you liberal idiot, it is 100% the driver's responsibility to cover the costs of overweight and inspection violations and these drivers don't have "deep pockets" that you can fine millions of dollars to pay for your government spending programs.

Are you some kind of moron? You want to raise taxes and fines and you don't even know who will be paying that money or where that money goes: to the state you idiot, not the county.

Technically it might be true that the company can be fined that amount, but in practice it will never happen because trucking companies aren't stupid.

If the trucking company tells a driver to do something illegal, they will tell you over the telephone so that there won't be a record of it. They aren't going to send you a text message over the computer.

The company tracks the truck movements and your driving hours over the satellite, and if you have an hours violation they immediately bombard the truck's messaging system with warning messages. The reason for this is that if you crash the truck or get written up with an hours violation, the company has evidence proving they told you to stop driving.

Drivers are legally required to certify all logbooks, paper or electronic, as being truthful, and if there is falsification then it is the driver's fault.

Hours violations are tracked over the satellite and if you have an hours violation, most companies require you to fill out a written statement assuming 100% of the responsibility. The company also writes you up and gives you a verbal warning. Not because they really care, they are just covering themselves in the event that DOT inspectors show up at the company.

All companies have a log department that conduct forensic examination of logbooks. They don't look at every driver's logbook for everyday, because that would take 10000 auditors to do it. But they conduct a good-faith effort to do random checks and that is usually enough to get by with for being acceptable by DOT.

In a couple of years all trucking companies no matter how small will be required to go to electronic logs because of Federal CSA guidelines. Which means that all companies will be tracking their trucks and driver hours via satellite and computer.

Or allow a driver to violate rules means if the state officials wants the deep pocket company cash they will force the officers to enforce the new rules PERIOD . Federal well its federal and the fines would be assed .

Trucking companies are arrogant it seems if you look online and see what they do and in most cases get away with it . Sure they track drivers 24 7 so when laws are broken they need to pay company size fines just like the drivers . 11,000 dollars in the county fund would buy a lot of untaxed votes locally .

You are the idiot The Company will pay for the fines if it is a company truck or trailer that has the violation. If it is the drivers violation such as LOG BOOK violation.
