, (PressExposure) July 03, 2006 -- Driver Networks LLC is pleased to announce that it has released its flagship offering, CoopsAreOpen.com. CoopsAreOpen.com is the most comprehensive resource for over 1100 weigh stations and scales and the corresponding state DOT regulations, saving truck drivers thousands of dollars in potential fines and avoiding long delays or inspections.
Professional truck drivers manage numerous regulations regarding the weight of their trucks, weight distribution and logged driving hours. Those policies differ by state and enforcement/tolerance can differ by weigh station. CoopsAreOpen.com provides drivers with a complete reference to those policies and their individual application as well as detailed contact, location, and helpful details for each weigh station.
It is legal in most states to drive around, or otherwise avoid, these weigh station checkpoints, and CoopsAreOpen.com explains the applicable legality and offers available alternate routes for individual scales. Company Spokesperson Michael Farrell stated "The varied regulations and their irregular application are confusing for truck drivers to stay current with. Over-limit penalties can be hundreds or thousands of dollars. We provide the information truckers need to stay legal and, if necessary, avoid unnecessary fines and delays."
Our state pages contain general DOT information as well as gross and axle weight tolerances, procedures, interstate and state route weight limits, overweight penalties and scale bypass considerations.
Our station pages contain specific location and contact information, station photographs, user-submitted comments, prepass availability, parking options, trucker atlas entries and suggested alternate routes.
