What's a "Weigh Station" Anyway?




And why have I never seen one that is actually open?

I have always wondered that! What are they weighing and why is it not important enough to stay open for?

They weigh semi's. The really big ones that carry the huge loads. They're only rated for a certain weight, but how do you know if it's at that weight without something huge like that weighscale.

They're only open in summer. And even then, only at certain times. Kinda like a Checkstop for police, only its for overweight trucks.
