While some of the regulatory signs read all “TRUCKS” must stop, the weigh stations are designed to weigh and inspect commercial motor vehicles. If your vehicle meets the definition of a commercial motor vehicle (over 10,000 lbs., buses, limousines, or any size vehicle hauling haz-mat that requires placards), you must stop at the weigh station if it is open. If you are using PrePass or DriveWyze weigh station bypass services, follow the in-cab signals of those devices. (KSA 8-1507, 8-1910, 66-1324)
The weigh stations are used for inspecting vehicles also, not just weighing. If the vehicle meets the definition of a commercial motor vehicle, and the weigh station is open, it must stop.
Unless your vehicle is equipped with PrePass or DriveWyze services then you are not required to stop if you receive the bypass from the device. There is no specific requirement for haz-mat loads to stop.
