FAQ Answer

All vehicles over 10,001 pound gross vehicle weight or more are subject to safety inspections at fixed or temporary roadside locations (NDCC 39-12-07). During the safety/weight inspection, random vehicle, hours of service, and driver’s license checks are conducted.

Vehicles and/or operators with an out-of-service violation will be immediately placed out of service.

Drivers not possessing a valid permit or license are required to obtain those documents before being allowed to proceed.

Any driver of a vehicle who refuses to stop and submit the vehicle and load to a weighing when directed to do so is guilty of a class B misdemeanor. (NDCC 39-12-21)
