    That's exactly what I think Karnajj. Maybe that is why we disagree on the the seriousness of this issue. Anybody else with any thoughts?

    Why the mystery? Please convince me that the full time stamp should not be there.
    I am not sure but I know CAT scales have the times on there and many drivers feel it is not on there. The time that is.

    Make sure you look for military time being inked on them receipts.

    It might look like

    2127 or it might look like 212730 ( I think that is how hours,minutes & seconds go in military style??).

    But yeah if you look at cat scales the time is stamped. Just look for the military time to the time it currently is where you are scaling etc.

    Just wanted to warn you. We don't use pilot etc so I am not familiar anymore to their receipts. I would however look for that information as I thought the time was on those receipts.

    I understand that when you drive by a scale house and your pre pass or ez pass is zapped DOT and your company know where you are so the log better match if they check it.
    I also started to see on either, light poles or 18ft poles on the side of highways, little boxes that are either white or beige in color. They are angled toward the #1 and #2 lanes and are sometimes spread two to four poles in a row. Anybody know what those are???

    DOT and Dept. of Homeland Security are x-raying you and your freight. :wink:

    Do you see the poles around tolls? scales?

    Cat6869: you are right about the CAt scale tickets, the time is on the left hand side half way down. Now then flip to the second page, no time showing. I always throw the front page away.

    I've seen them a few miles (2-5) from a scale or a toll both. I've tried looking on the net but haven't seen anything.
    I'm assuming for raidiation detection would require a larger scanner.?
    I started noticing these things back east... Ohio, PA etc.... I've also seen on 99 here in Cali and on the 10 and 15/215 here. I can't believe nobody has noticed them before.

    Your not mistaken Paul...there are units mounted on poles along various roads nationwide now. I have been wondering their main purpose. They are smaller than what is used at scale houses for prepass...but look like they do the same job.

    Myself...I've been thinking they have more to do with "over-height" monitoring, since it seems I see them within a few miles of bridges with questionable clearances. There has been a lot of new pavement laid in the last couple years...and they haven't shaved every road surface...to keep the clearances where they should be.

    Why would you want the time on there Mr. Legal Begal???? If DOT wants to get the time all they have to do is call the card you use.

    Freedom does not mean the choice to do whatever you want. It means the choice to do what you ought.
