COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Ohio State Highway Patrol is working to reduce weight violations by commercial vehicles on Ohio roads and is introducing a new patrol vehicle to help.
The new patrol vehicle carries portable scales that can weight commercial vehicles in areas where stationary platform scales are not available.
OSHP said that the new scale trucks aim to combat overweight violations across the state.
Those violations can cause crashes and damage to Ohio roadways, troopers said.
