Indiana Tests Embedded Scales

Indiana has unveiled a system that looks to catch truckers trying to cheat the system. They will be the first state to test a new weight system, pending legislation. Kapsch TrafficCom out of McLean, Virginia has come out with a new weight system that uses lasers and embeds scales in the highway roads to measure truck weights.

Similar embedded systems are already in use in France and the Czech Republic.
