Evaluation of High Potential Areas for Truck Overweights and Accidents

There are several areas in California that have high incident and accident weights involving overweight trucks. These areas need to be investigated and recommendations made for possible use of Weigh in Motion equipment to assist Law Enforcement in removing these overweight vehicles from the roadway. Areas where overweight trucks may find alternate routes to bypass fixed/static weight stations will be evaluated. Also, potential placement of virtual weight in motion equipment on these routes will be evaluated.
