Is there a benefit to displaying regulation number decals outside of my truck?
Yes! Displaying all of your truck regulation decals outside of your semi truck cabin can help expedite the process whenever you’re stopped by authorities or whenever you stop at truck scales. Picture this, you get stopped at a truck scale and can’t find your paperwork, having your truck regulation information outside of your truck will help the inspector, it will also speed up the process for him. A truck scale inspector has to input a lot of your truck information in multiple databases, so displaying your truck information helps cut each scale inspection by 15 minutes! Now imagine the time saved by the end of your career! At US Decals, we recommend displaying all of your truck information on both sides of your truck to help you succeed and avoid any potential problems.
We recently spoke to a Truck Scale Inspector and he commented “when a truck comes in here to get inspected, the first thing we do is get all of the information from the truck, such as the GVW, VIN, USDOT, and whatever regulation number we need”. He also added “If the truck already has all of that information displayed, it helps both parties and helps to save time”.
