Trucker may face $10,000 fine
A Canadian trucker could be facing nearly $10,000 in fines for operating a rig in Washington County that weighed nearly double allowed by Maryland law, according to Maryland State Police.
State police stopped Steven Roy Pepper, 28, of Smith Falls, Ontario, on Interstate 81 at Halfway Boulevard in late June for a weigh check.
The vehicle, which had 11 axles, was weighed in at 195,600 pounds, police said. The permit for the truck only allowed for a weight of 110,000, police said.
