We hear it all of the time, “The POPO ain’t gonna mess with my DOT numbers if I display them on cardboard” which translates to “The Police (DOT) is not going to tell me anything if my regulation numbers (USDOT) are not displayed correctly”.
One of the first things a commercial vehicle inspector looks at is your regulation numbers such as your USDOT, MC, GVW, KYU, CA, VIN or whatever number is applicable to your type of business and/or state. Truck scales or weight stations now have the ability to read all of the numbers you choose to display outside of your commercial vehicle. These advanced cameras and sensors will pick up the lettering and transmit it to the scale house authority. If your lettering is difficult to read, the chances of you getting audited or pulled over increase substantially.
Not only does professional lettering look good, but it leaves a good impression on business partners and the public. Spend the few extra bucks and get it done right the first time.
