I saw this at a CAT Scale , at a Loves, in McPherson, Kansas. The driver obviously pulled ahead of the scale and parked it there, like we would do at a fuel island.

I saw a truck back up off a CAT Scale, and luckily, I was paying attention, as I was trying to leave the truck stop and deliver my load.

Do NOT park at a CAT Scale.

CAT Scale:

A network of over 1,500 certified truck scales across the U.S. and Canada found primarily at truck stops. CAT scales are by far the most trustworthy scales out there.

In fact, CAT Scale offers an unconditional Guarantee:

“If you get an overweight fine from the state after our scale showed your legal, we will immediately check our scale. If our scale is wrong, we will reimburse you for the fine. If our scale is correct, a representative of CAT Scale Company will appear in court with the driver as a witness”

Parking at a CAT Scale , LONG TERM parking ahead of a fuel island and (one I saw today) parking around the fuel island in a way to make it difficult to actually LEAVE the truck stop.

Another would be parking in a fire lane

Recent fuel pad comedy...

Saw a truck pull forward off the fuel pad stopping about 20 feet from the stop line, blocking the pumps with his trailer. Pulled his brakes and exited his truck. Although he was quickly dealt with (was showered with "Love" at "Love's"), he had no clue what the problem was and complained loudly as he got back in his truck.

Wow! I guess that's what it's like working in a country that doesn't have OSHA. Or in some countries they'll mine gold using mercury without any protection. "Yeah, we know it's gonna kill you but take it or leave it."
