Hence why you see those big Penske trucks being driven by idiots all the time, and I believe they have air brakes.
Does anyone know who / what place would be able to do the weighing AND doing the math to see what the gross weight would be? I have no idea how that is done. I have tried searching for this info on the MVA page and have found nothing.
I will see where I can find the info for the air break test. I read that even RVs need this in Maryland. As for the weighing a bus, there are many places that have scales. The rest I got when I talked to MVA.
When you weigh, many here say it is a good idea to weigh each axel alone too to see your axel weight. Some go as far as to weigh each side too.
I heard you can get it weight at a Pilot FlyingJ for around $10. I know there is one in Hagerstown.
