The state of Connecticut has established weight limits for trucks that drive on the highway. These limits relate to the size, length, and weight of trucks. Tractor trailers and similar vehicles that drive on roads need to follow these laws. These laws exist to keep the roads safe and protect other drivers. Huge trucks that break down or carry too much weight pose a danger to other drivers. You can check out this page for more information on Connecticut weight regulations and overweight trucks. In this article, I will discuss the locations of the weigh stations in Connecticut.
If trucks operate on Connecticut highways, they must have their weights checked at weigh stations. Connecticut has six designated weigh stations. You can stop at these stations to have a truck’s weight checked. They include:
- The Danbury Weigh Station.
- The Greenwich Weigh Station.
- The Meriden Weigh Station.
- The New London Weigh Station.
- The Union Weigh Station.
- The Westbrook Weigh Station.
