Don't know if I would stop in a State weigh station, unless I was required to do so.
IMO, if a rig is overweight it's far better to know it and correct it rather than drive it.

I agree 100% Mel, just seemed like a better way to find out rather that draw attention to the problem over 1,000 miles from home base.
