At the invitation of Mississippi DOT (MDOT), agencies from multiple states visited the Orange Grove weigh station in Mississippi to witness a demonstration of MDOT’s recently installed Smart Roadside electronic screening systems.
The demonstrations included both a fixed screening system installed at the weigh station and a mobile unit installed in a customized sprinter van. MDOT’s automated electronic screening systems include license plate readers, USDOT readers and Thermal Inspection systems. During the demonstration, 11 trucks were pulled in for inspection; 100% received violations.
