While that is true, I can point you to a thread on a RV site where a guy from Missouri (IIRC) was cited in Arizona for not having a plate on the rear of his truck. His state requires them on the front, but the AZ azzhole that pulled him over refused to listen and wrote him a ticket. He appealed to the Chief of Police and was basically told he could pay the $75 fine or stick around and fight it in court. He paid it and dropped the matter, rather reluctantly. I would have gone to the AZ Attorney General's office.

If you have a trailer attached to your truck they go by the gross axle weights, if you don't exeed them and tires are appropriate for the weight you are golden. You also have 10% variance on axles also. I tow to Kalifornia commercial several times a year, if you look safe and drive with the appropriate license you will likely have no problems. Their is always the ahole you can't do anything about.

Please quote statute.

I have heard this over and over again. From what I have read of the statutes, you must obey whatever laws apply to the state you are in, no matter where you are from (assuming you don't have diplomatic immunity). All the compact states is if it is not an offence in your home state, your home state takes no action (read no points). If whatever state you are in fines you - you must pay the fine. Whatever points that state would assign don't amount to a hill of beans, as that is up to your home state.


I was pulled over for doing 55 in the right lane (the speed limit while towing in California). The only thing I was doing was driving. All the officer (CHP) wanted to see was my license, and the registration on the truck and trailer. After I handed him my CDL, he lost all interest. Your guess is as good as mine, but a 40' toy hauler is enough to draw interest on the Grapevine at least.

And you probably had CA plates. I've worked with law enforcement for over 20 years, and ran this by CDL enforcement, motor units, traffic units, etc. reciprocity applies here. Otherwise you would need to to a driver's test and get a license from each state.
