Super fine for super load

| 4/2/2009

A Bethlehem, PA, police captain says it’s the biggest fine he’s ever seen slapped on an overweight tractor-trailer. According to The Associated Press, the driver of a truck owned by Guy M. Turner In. of Greensboro, NC, was handed a ticket for $37,554.

For some reason, the company had failed to get a so-called “super load” permit – even though the truck was hauling a steel cylinder that weighed 213,000 pounds.
