They've probably sent out a group of black helicopters in search of you. You might want to park in a cave for a few days. smile.gif

Just kidding!

Don't worry about this. Just be more careful about it in the future. I've done this myself quite accidentally. There were no ramifications.

Now, if you make a habit of this...

Well, just watch out for those helicopters!

I'm thinking since they didn't come after you and pull you over, you're probably ok. However, if your company mysteriously questions you about it, admit it immediately, say it was unintentional and you will NEVER do it again.

But I'm seriously thinking you got lucky and will be fine.

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Good point Susan, if the company mysteriously questions you about it, admit and let them know you won’t do it again. Coming out of Texas into Oklahoma they have cameras that take pictures as you drive by, even when bypassed and they are open. I learned that driving at night, the scale was closed and a flash bulb went off, thats when i knew that some of these places record the trucks going by.

Yes, at many scales, you're often photographed. Sometimes they'll let you slide.. sometimes they'll notify your employer. I've been told my company has received a notice or two of trucks accidentally bypassing scales.. not me thank goodness.. more common if they didn't have a chase vehicle available. If they're feeling charitable and saw the look of horror on your face (via the cameras they watch on your approach) as they watched you blow past then you get a lucky pass.

When i was new i once entered a highway trying to merge left. i didnt realize the weigh station was there until i passed it . it was right at the end of the acceleration lane. i was like WHAT???? i passed a weigh station?

i got off at the next ramp, back tracked and went through both the east and west bound stations hoping they would understand. nothing was ever said.
