    If you drive a truck for any length of time, you will most likely get inspected by a DOT officer. For some of us, inspections seem to happen more often.

    As you pull into the weigh station and get the dreaded arrow pointing to the scale, you already know the possibility of getting inspected has just increased. After all, when you get a PrePass green light, or even the bypass arrow on the weigh station ramp, your chances of then getting stopped is not eliminated, but reduced considerably. But today, again, you slow down to approach the scale, stop until it is clear to proceed, then slowly roll onto the scale as you lower your window and await instructions. That’s when the voice on the loudspeaker crackles to life…”Driver, pull around to the parking area, wait in your vehicle, I will meet you there for an inspection.” and the arrow pointing to the inspection lot lights up. Great, another damn inspection!
