By now, you probably already know that there are weight limitations for trucks driving on Connecticut roads. However, you might wonder how these weights get checked. Will a police officer pull you over to check the weight of your vehicle? Will you get asked to fill out forms about the weight of the cargo that you carry? You must have your truck’s weight checked at a weigh station located on a Connecticut highway. There are six official weigh stations throughout the state of Connecticut that you can stop at to have a truck’s weight checked.
